  • i dont know if it would be dangerous or not, but i dont think it would be a good idea. how were you planning on getting the ink under your skin? it wont come out neat unless you use a proper tattoo gun, and the ink will probably spead and fade if you use a pin or something. tattoo's arent that excpencive to get dont my a professional, maybe you should just do that.
  • I don't think it's a very healthy thing to do..plus I don't really think it will look great when you are done.
  • Bic pen ink is not treated the same way that Tattoo ink is. I wouldn't recommend putting it into your body, because it's very toxic, and you have no idea how your body will react to it. And don't even get me started about the sterility of needles when giving yourself a tattoo.
  • Do not do this. That ink is not sterile in that pen. Nor is the tip of it. Add to that the fact you would have to litterly cut yourself with a knife and you will have an infection and blood poisioning. Plus the ink will bleed all over the place under the skin and fade faster then tattoo ink. Better to leave it up to the pros.
  • I was thinking about doing this, too. For now, I have decided not to. Besides the health risks, think about your appearance. The ink could spread in your arm, or create an unsightly blot of color on your body.
  • I would think that it would be dangerous because it would not be sterile.
  • When friends did self tattoo they used Indian ink which is for body use,so if you intend to do this if would find some info on this ink and do NOT use biro ink.
  • Simple: 1. You could use this ink to give yourself a tattoo. 2. It is dangerous. Longer: The only reason it is dangerous is that there may be a chemical in the ink that could hurt you either temporarily (eg liver failure), or permanently... things like brain or nervous system damage, necrosis etc. There is a good chance that at least one of the BIC ink ingredients is highly toxic. Of course it also depends on the size of the tattoo. If somehow you could entice an employee of BIC to divulge the complete ingredients of the ink, (they wont release it freely!), you could then investigate the toxicity of each of these ingredients on the human body, and more accurately establish the danger of injecting Bic Ink into the skin.
  • I TRYED THAT :[ it didnt work... although im not to sure if i did it right :) it stings like crazy when you put the ink on the cut.. the ink stayed for a month and then completly dissapeared ...
  • No, that's dangerous and can make you sick. That's not the type of ink that tattoo artists use. Based on the question, I'll assume you're underage...so I'm going to say this: It may be best to wait until you're old enough to A) get it professionally done and B)sure that you want that particular name/picture/symbol on your body for the rest of your life.
  • That would probably do something horrible to you... at the very least, it won't stay for long. Use India Ink.
  • this is my BIC black ink tattoo
  • Seems like a bad idea you could really hurt yourself longterm, why not try henna? its last for a while and then eventually fades a good idea if you end up not liking what you have put on yourself
  • GO TO A PRO ITS EXPENSIVE BUT AT LEAST YOU WILL NOT DIE
  • I wouldn't do it. My artist won't even tattoo himself and he has been working for years. If you really want to give yourself a tattoo get an apprenticeship and learn how to do it right. But I don't think that Bic ink is a good idea.
  • ARE YOU CRAZY WOMAN! (OR MAN) the ink of the pen could be very toxic and u don't know wat could happen to your body, it could even shut ur system down so i recommend u go to a real, professional tattoo artist!
  • don't be a moron.
  • Theoretically you could, and of course it will look amateurish and you'll regret it long after the infection clears up.
  • well of course it's possible - just as it is "possible" to give yourself brain surgery with a kitchen knife.... and brain surgery may be something you want to consider.
  • well i tryed it and i got lead poisonand it made the area arounf my tattoo paralyzed so dont do it you will get lead poison like me
  • I'm going to take a stab at this. I'm just going to guess you watch the movie Momento. If that is where this is coming from, you will NEVER get it to look as good as he did. If not, then my bad. Still if you MUST do it yourself and refuse to apprentice with a pro, just use tattoo ink! You can order it online, it's all over the place! (not that I'm saying this is a good idea, just dont want you to die)
  • aye its fine i just done to me pal =] go for it =] xx
  • Im guessing your IQ score is below 90? You can buy Indian ink (Tattoo ink) over the counter so to speak. Pen ink wont last anyway and I would imagine that it is dangerous.
  • Simple answers for simple people! Anyone that wishes to tattoo themselves or even get tattooed by others is a nut!
  • Yes you could. But it would be very dangerous and if a tattoo is that important to you, get a real one. It'd pro look like crap anyway. And you'd most definatly regret it.
  • 1st Ink is lead based.2nd your body will try to expell it from your system.3rd Do you know how deep to go into what part of the demal layer? Ok what you should do is save up acouple dollars and go get a real one. Its safe,sterile and the art will last as well as look good.Trust me I have A full sleeve of ink,and my best friend owns a shop.
  • "NO...pen ink is lead based......bottom line: could result in death or serious infection...;)" Poppycock. Pen ink is regulated by the FDA and MUST be non-toxic for children to use. It is NOT lead-based. It is glycerin and vegetable dye based. Where do these whacko answers come from? See wiki at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballpoint_pen
  • use indian ink and a safety pin wit rubbing alchol or peroxide thts wut i did and im fine
  • NO; the ink will run and smear etc when you wash ... SAVE and get a regular Tat !! +5
  • Omg all the people here have helped me too cause i was just about to do this. i got half way through writting ILY then i thought otherwise and came here :)
