I was searching the trash at a department store for an item I thought I through away that was very valuable and was pricked by a pin from clothes. I was wearing gloves and when I took them off there was no blood on my finger. Am I at risk for any diseases if the pin prick did not go deep enough to make me bleed.

No you are not at risk.
