Can you get ink poisoning from drawing on your skin with pen?

Can you get ink poisoning from drawing on your skin with pen?

I was wondering cuz one of my friends say you can from your skin absorbing the ink. Which if it did, then wouldn't not be able to come off?
I swear it's safe just as long as you don't ingest it.

I've never seen anyone get it myself, but I can remember someone once mentioning that someone they knew had got it. It's probably only a special type of ink that causes it, I don't know.

drawing on your hand won't really do much, it's gonna take a //ton// of ink to poison you. It's aright tho, I draw all over my arms allthe time and I'm fine.

no you won't get ink poisoning just dont write or draw on any vains or cuts but either way you would have to take in a giant sharpie worth of ink for it to harm you
