Why is a sharp pin able to pop a balloon but while just using your finger the balloon will not?

It is because the area of sharp pin is very less in comparison to our finger. So when we press the balloon with sharp pin, pressure (force per unit area) is very higher than if we press it by finger. That's why balloon just pops using sharp pin but not with finger.
