    If You Were Stabbed By A Pencil And Still Have A Mark, YOU ARE NOT ALONE

    There are thousands of us.

    1. It happens far more often than you think.

    Am I the only one that still has a mark from getting stabbed by a pencil in elementary

    2. You're just sitting there and BAM — you've got a tattoo for life.

    Still have a pencil mark from where I got stabbed in 5th grade. Not how I envisioned my first tattoo.. #imasurvivor

    3. You may forget it's still there...

    4. ...but you'll never forget HOW it got there:

    @Los_Writer Happened during 3rd grade, walked to the nurse with the whole pencil still in 😭😭

    5. You can find them on knees...

    @Los_Writer My pencil was sticking out of my bag and somehow it stabbed my leg😬

    6. On wrists...

    I was stabbed with a pencil in primary 6 and this ‘lead mark’ in my arm has never gone away. Can I get it out? Is it there forever more? Anyone else?

    7. On feet...

    @Los_Writer happened when i was like 8, had a pencil on the floor that got stuck in the carpet at a weird angle and stabbed my toe!! i always figured it would go away by now but no 🤷‍♀️

    8. On that weird area between your thumb and pointer finger...

    9. On your DANG HEAD...

    @Los_Writer Hello. I got frustrated while practicing single digit multiplication in 3rd grade and decided to slam my head on the table. However, I hit my pencil that was sticking point up. It’s still here 11 years later.

    10. On EARS???

    @Chinohoven Some girl sharpened her pencil and ran straight at me to show me and stabbed me instead

    11. In your MOUTH?!?!

    @Los_Writer Hello one time my sister stabbed me with a pencil when we were playing tag

    12. It doesn't matter if it happened decades ago — it's not going away.

    I still have a blue spot on my knee from when @reseriction stabbed me with a pen in 8th grade

    13. Are you cursed with one of these graphite tattoos?

    In 2nd grade I stabbed my self in the hand with a pencil on accident. I went to the nurse and I remember her telling me “when you’re 18 years old, you’ll still have a small little graphite marking on your palm” I’m about to be 24 and it’s still there.

    14. Are you scarred for life?

    15. It's time for all of us to embrace the graphite tattoo. EMBRACE THE PENCIL STAB.

    16. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!

    @GenderCoping @unkilledwoman Jos Truitt. Stabbed me with my own pen when I was eleven.

    17. There are others like us out there.

    18. Never forget that time that one kid stabbed you with a pencil in third grade.

    19. Never forget that one time you accidentally poked yourself and changed your life forever.

    @Los_Writer @kalesalad middle school, stabbed myself w a sharpened pencil by moving my leg too close to my backpack on the floor 🤷‍♀️

    20. Embrace the dot.

    I got stabbed by a pencil 12 years ago and the graphite is still there haha #firsttattoo

    21. BE THE DOT.

    22. It's a badge of honor.
