Unless you are a woman, nigiri sushi is intended to be eaten with the hand.

At least when I was in Japan that seemed to be the case.

I am not sure if it was intended to be eaten with the hand, but it certainly is perfectly acceptable to do so. Sushi is finger food in Japan. In the US it is more common to use chopsticks, but I know I have used my fingers before.
