If it was an aggressive bite usually caused by fear you'd probably be bleeding so it does sound more like an exploratory nibble.
Did you try any of the taming ideas suggested in your other thread with him yet?

Did you wash your hands first? If there was a strong soap smell or the smell of food might have caused it
