It should really be some sort of "very small impaling" damage type (needles having more in common with daggers than bullets), but since GURPS lacks that, I'd say small piercing would have to work, yeah.

Agreed. Specifically, needles like that, used properly, shouldn't really cause Injury aside from blood loss, and the latter would only really apply if a large quantity of blood is drawn (and, honestly, should be handled separately from HP loss). Of course, this is a pretty significant tangent from the actual topic at hand so, Hellboy, if you want to continue this discussion you may wish to start a new thread.
