have you had a tetanus shot? I would perhap check that out first just in case the metal was rusty or something. Secondly, was it your name tag? I always worry about stabbing myself with pins that someone else may have stabbed them selves with too. I would have encouranged more bleeding my squeezing the entry sight to remove any bacteria from the wound, then use an alcohol wipe over the area, apply an antiseptic cream and cover with a blister pad or something that still allows the site to breath but doesnt allow dirt to enter. 

Watch out for extreme redness and any severe pain or swelling.

I’d probably put some pressure on it to stop the bleeding and then just keep it bandaged up. Hope you’re able to walk on it! That must have hurt.
