The way I see it (and I am in no way an expert) a mosquito would only suck blood out of veins, since they are superficial, and not arteries, which most of the time lie deeper. Since the blood in the veins is on its way back to the heart, the pressure there is fairly low. Now if the mosquito did manage to hit an artery, the chances are higher that this might happen. However, I still don't know if the pressure would be enough.

Wait...what? How does flexing your muscles involve your arteries or veins? They are actually sucking blood out of capillaries, unless you are being bit by vampire mosquitos....
