The inks in felt tips like Sharpies are not waterbase in most cases, but
solvent based with a volatile solvent which in a standard inkjet printer
would dry out in no time and clog the heads up.
Even if "Sharpie ink" were available, I would not suggest loading it in
a household inkjet. With an Epson printer it would probably clog with
other brands, it might even catch fire when some types of heads heated
the ink up.
