red mark from needle?

i donated blood a couple weeks ago and I developed a red, dime-sized mark where the needle was. it itches sometimes. two things that happened: the needle didn't go in the first time, they had to wiggle it a little, and it didn't end up helping anything because they told me i have low iron stores in my blood and i cant donate for a year. 

what is  it?

    A bruise of them fiddling with the needle.

    Give it time to heal.
