Pen spinning, or the art of performing spinning tricks with a pen, has a vibrant online community. Most pens are unsuitable for advanced pen spinning out of the box. To compensate for this, many advanced spinners develop modifications, or mods, for their pens. While there are many possible mods, one simple mod for the Bic round-body pen is the BICtory mod.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Two Bic round-body pens
  • Grip or electrical tape

  1. 1

    Remove the caps from the pens. Set aside or discard one of the pens.

  2. 2

    Puncture the inkwell cover on one side of the pen. The inkwell cover is the plastic cover that is at the non-writing end of the pen. The inkwell is the pen cartridge. This step is optional. Some pen spinners prefer to reverse the inkwell while practicing so that they don't accidentally draw on their clothes. Puncturing the inkwell cover will allow you to reverse the inkwell if you desire.

  3. 3

    Break the clips off both of the pen caps.

  4. 4

    Put the pen caps on both sides of the pen. Roll some grip tape around the ends to provide balance weights.
