In brief: HIV is a virus -

not a bacteria.
But if there is no HIV - then you can't be infected with it.

In brief: It is 2014

There is no mystery anymore about how one gets HIV.
One does not get HIV from a piercing. We are thirty years into this epidemic. How could you still have this misconception?
