Sharpie and phone flash shocks me??

So this morning, my friend colored on my veins on my wrist with a jumbo sharpie. She blew on it and pressed my out facing phone camera onto my wrist where she colored and took a picture with the flash on. When it took the picture, I got shocked. And having the same amount of courage as a chicken nugget, I freaked the hell out. Why did it shock me????

    Test it again somewhere else on your arm and youll realize that youre just burning your skin with the superbright lights in your phone. This explains why a lot of people who are doing this say it hurts after the flash stops- unlike the kind of electical shocks that would come from your phone flash. The black square that youre supposed to put on your arm is there to absorb more light than your bare skin because the darker colors absorb more light. It would be interesting to see if someone with a dark complection would need to put the square for the effect to work effectively.

    Source(s): I just did it elsewhere on my arm without sharpie and it still "shocked". However, im using an LG G4. My friend tried it with her iPhone without the sharpie and it didnt work so the light on the G4 might be worse at keeping a low temp. Photo: https://imgur.com/O36op3g

    true story. iphone 6S 4.7in model shocked me after a large dot was drown on my hand with a black sharpie. this was not a burn. it took a few times to get it to work correctly and never got hot during the failed attempts.

    Doing this on a vein can send false messages to the brain and have serious effects. It can make you pass out and if its on a serious vein such as the neck or penis/vagina it can make you pas out or maybe even create cancer cells so watch out!
