If you mean by getting it into your skin, then yes. The ink can cause bloodpoisoning.

Any kind of ink not used for Tattoos is probably bad for your skin

Yes, it's toxic. So go wash it off and if you feel sick you need to go to the school nurse or the doctor.

I've drawn on myself with Sharpies for all of my life, and I've never had a problem. Though, since your skin is turning purple, I assume that's bad. You should see a doctor quickly.

The sharpie ink has got chemicals that can harm your skin if soaked through. Wash it off thoroughly with warm water and soap also please don't write on yourself with sharpie again unless you're wanting to take a trip to the doctor's office....
