As already has been said, no risk. Only ways that adults get HIV is to have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or share IV drug needles. This is different than needle poke or stick as the end of needle is exposed to air and nothing is 'injected'.

Reread the QUESTION below. Then please answer it in your next post, since you didn't understand my answer.

Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (pin, fluids etc. ). You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are only 3 ways to get hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the WORST that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. hiv prevention is straightforward since there are only 3 ways you can become infected, so next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself this QUESTION. "Did I do any of the 3?" Then after you say "No, I didn't" you will know that it's time to move on back to your happy life.
No one got hiv from what you did during 40 years of hiv history and no one will get it in the next 40 years of your life either.  You can do what you did any time and be safe.

Merci beaucoup pour votre post.
I am from France, so sorry for my English.
I would therefore like to thank you again  for these answers and your kind patience.
No problem. You can do what you did anytime and not worry about hiv.

Since you didn't answer the QUESTION I posted on the other thread, I will answer for you. "No the tailor didn't have a penetrating penis and we didn't share hollow needles to inject with, so I had no risk and should move on from hiv fears."

I don't understand why you have chosen that kind of words "Penis" .
I am a man and I am not gay, with my respect to gays.
Is this scientific answer ?
