tiny red pinpoint dot on my hand?

i have this really tiny dot on my hand  . it doesn't hurt what so ever and goes away if i apply pressure  but re-appears immediately if pressure is released. it was really annoying me so I pierced it with a needle and it began to bleed like mad. so I'm just curious if it is something like a capillary or something else. thx

It is just then end of the blood vessel is right next to the surface of your skin.  I have several of them.  They are nothing to be worried about.  They do tend to bleed a lot more if you pierce or cut them.
