nope, but I imagine you would need to go to the hospital and face the music

my friend did with a slin pin...luckily he was able to dig it out with tweezers. IMO the smaller the needle, the more careful you have to be...

For this reason,you shouldn`t push the whole needle in.

Now that would suck in a big way! The alloy seems to have high tensile strenght/malleability as I've tried to break one on purpose before and **** near managed to make a circle out of it. That was a 23ga though, and it has happened.
