Silver nitrate will react in the skin and transform in silver chloride BUT in order to get black it needs to be exposed to solar or very strong light, and the reaction is not instantaneous.
Your PT seems that at some point in his/her life s/he got silver nitrate in the skin that transformed into a black stain. but that will not readily "fly" in a lab setting.

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone ever heard of using Silver Nitrate for inking skin bx's before processing???

One of our paths mentioned it. 

Thanks in advance.
