How to remove that blood easily in two seconds is explained in the last paragraph of the sales description of the long-needled dermastamps:

http://shop.owndoc.com/product-info.php?dermastamp2mm-pid199.html

With this model, it is possible to get some discoloration caused by blood staining at the needle base. A good way to clean this up is to take a plant mister and set it to spray a small, tight stream of water. Then spray the stamp while holding it needles-side up.  This cleans it out completely in a matter of seconds.

You can do that, yes.

I don't know if this is an issue for anyone else, but I always get small traces of skin stuck between the needles after stamping.  After thorough rinsing and disinfecting, they still remain. 

Is it harmful to continue using my dermastamp with the skin stuck in the needles?  Is there another way of removing it without using a plant mister?  I contemplated using a garden hose, but I think that is too extreme and too much of a hassle for me.

I don't think a garden hose will help but I suggest using a new toothbrush purchased for that purpose.

Really?  So a new toothbrush's bristles won't damage the needles?

No, they won't.

Something with a substantially lower hardness can never damage something with a substantially higher hardness.

You can scratch a pice of chalk with a piece of steel, but you can't scratch a piece of steel with a piece fo chalk, not matter how much and how long you try.

The bristles of a toothbrush have a very, very low hardness and stainless steel is very, very much harder (many orders of magnitude, it's an exponential scale so steel is millions of times harder than the plastic used in a toothbrush).
