    My attempt:

    I got a pricked/stuck in my finger by a pin

    I pricked/stuck the pin in my finger

    I pricked/stuck Myself in my finger

    which is correct?

    And I got pricked by a pin in my finger

    Is it wrong?

    No, it's not wrong but it's not idiomatic. You want to watch your use of passive voice.

    On second thoughts it's not too bad. Maybe I would say "I got pricked with a pin".
