I've never done this myself, but I have thought of it many times. We have a locally growing plant called Poke weed with very dark purple berries that easily stain clothing or whatever comes in contact with them.

Cool. Someone here was recently talking about making walnut ink.

Good stuff. I like hearing about the different ways to make your own ink.

The poke berries definitely do stain everything they come into contact with. (I grew up in North Carolina) But beware if you decide to make ink out of it, because the berry is poisonous.
