No documentary evidence to your query,
Continuous writing may lead to form a scar or callosity.

HI welcome to health care magic.........
As far as the present research goes , there is no documented proof that writing on oneself causes skin cancer.
Cancer happens on repeated irritation or injury, so though no documented proof says but why do you want to write on yourself???
Anyhow writing on oneself does not cause skin cancer ..
