    The easiest and quickest way to remove permanent ink from skin is with a spray on, mist-style sunscreen. Just spray it on the spot to be removed and then take a dry cloth or paper towel and wipe it away. If it is not removed completely the first time, repeat and all will be well.

    Really works!!! My two went through a stage of drawing all over eachother in permanent marker pen and got this info off the internet when all else failed!!

    My kids get permanate marker on them too from time to time.It sometimes takes about two days for it to go away compleatly! When you give him or her a bath tonight,it might be fadding away but not totally vanished. You could try using a wash cloth dipped in some baby oil ,if you have it! If not ,it wouldn't hurt to use cooking oil on the wash cloth. Then rub the skin gently in a circular motion, SOMETIMES that loosens up the marker a little.

    Just ,next time,make sure your marker pens are out of your childs reach!

    Don't worry about it! It will vanish on it's own.

    You didn't say what part of the face. If the pen has penetrated a fleshy part, all you really have to do is grasp it firmly and give a steady pull. It should come out. Of course there will be bleeding, but don't be alarmed. This is easily stopped by applying a steady pressure on the wound. On the other hand, if a bone is involved, it's probably more than "Kitchen first aid" can deal with. If the child is conscious, use a pot or frying pan to correct that situation and take him/her to the nearest auto mechanic.

    LOL My daughter just drew all over the house with a dry erase marker and I couldn't get it off nomatter how hard I tried. I bought a magic erase sponge and WOW it came off. I was so impressed I emailed them. The joke with my friends is that I would tell them that it took it right off her face.

    Sorry it doesn't help you, but it did make me laugh to read your question.

    If you can't get it off with soap and water, I'm sure time will take it away! People know what kind of trouble toddlers get into, so don't worry about it!

    How old is the child? If it is a baby, put up with it until it goes away (wash as usual, it will take some time).

    Is is near their eyes? If it is, put up with it until it goes away (wash as usual, it will take some time).

    If it is an older child (three or older where they will sit still and they do not have as sensitive a skin), and it is not near their eyes, put some hair spray on a cloth (really saturate it) and rub VERY softly - only do this for three or four wipes (NO NOT SCRUB). Then wash with a sensitive soap.

    Source(s): My mother tells me I liked to "decorate" myself with felt tiped markers when I was a child.......

    Try Vaseline. Scrubbing with soap and water can be too harsh. Vaseline is safe, even around the eyes (I use it to remove eye makeup every day).
