Can You Still See a Pencil Mark from Grade School? You're Not Alone


If you have pencil marks somewhere on your body from a random jab of a number 2 pencil when you were a kid...don't worry you are not alone. This was a random tweet on Twitter from a guy at Buzzfeed and it has gone superviral because SO many people have this issue. The REASON you still have that mark is because the stabbing leaves graphite particles in the dermis layer of the skin (the layer below the outer epidermis). This is very similar to the ink of a tattoo.
