As an adult, the only risks for HIV are:
1) having unprotected, penetrative vaginal or anal sex, or
2) sharing IV drug needles with other IV drug users.

A safety pin is NOT a hollow bore needle, like an IV needle.  There is no comparison.  There is absolutely no detail you could add to this event that would make it a risk for HIV.

Thank you very much for your reply, but my question is ( even if there was a fresh blood of someone else on the pin
Who used it before I use it.)
And as per your comments no need to be tested.
Kind regards
