Pen that uses blood for its ink

This massive custom pen uses blood for ink. Stick the syringe in your arm, draw some blood, and load it up to start writing your Poe-inspired masterpiece.

I've gotten much better at having blood drawn and it doesn't bother me now, but I don't know if I could take some of my own. I'd love to feel how well it writes, though.

Only the first minute of this video is worth watching. The rest is just more writing.

Note: This is not me and since there's no proof that's blood (watch the editing), I think this is more of a concept and is using red ink.

yes where can I buy this

It's not real, and if it were it would be madly dangerous to use.

this is ...inventive ? to say the least why would you use your blood when you could use red ink this is disturbing and will give people bad ideas its only a matter of time until someone gets aids using that thing unless your the only one writing with it and handling the paper

To get aids from handling the paper you'd have to mush it up and inject it into yourself - within half an hour of it being written, and I assume you'd just use a new syringe for every use.

It would have to a cut where the inks was (i.e. right up to the edge) and it would have to be while the ink was still wet, and regardless it would still be very unlikely that you would become infected with such a low dose

well no if someone was handeling the page and a cut on there hand it would be possible

i agree this is verry disturbing
I assume it does. I'm somewhat loath to attempt to open one up as: 1) I might break it. 2) It's sealed up pretty good. 3) There could be vampires or demons inside it. Funny thing about the Kubuntu background, it was the first handy light-coloured thing I could find to: 1) provide contrast for the photo, and 2) attempt to cover the fugly carpet, I laid out all that stuff on (although if I hadn't mentioned it, people might have just assumed it was a hardboard or MDF benchtop, due to the poor photography. Perhaps I'll make a framed diorama of the instruments sometime. I like "juxtaposition" as well, though not as much as "loath", or even "dearth" and "surfeit", which I'll use anytime, even out of context, having a dearth of opportunity to use 'em, and a (completely imaginary, as I should be working) surfeit of spare time, to type long-winded commentary, rampant with pretentious diction and archaic terminology.
I bet people will be using these at Vampire: The Masquerade LARPs for years to come now. :P
