This morning I noticed a black or brown tiny spot on my tongue; almost looks like a ball point pen poked me in the tongue. I've already researched a little, has anyone else had anything similar?

Yes, but mine looked more of a dark purple.
I just had dental work done and it included a check up for oral cancer. My mouth got the clean bill of health.
However, I think the antibiotics that the dentist gave me created a reaction on my tongue.
I bought a jug of carrot juice, downed it in 3 days and it went away.

If you can, get a dentist or a doc to check it out.

P.S. Be careful of those internet images! They can be nasty and make the mind wander with worry.
When I had my problem, I did some research too. Some scary looking tongues out there!

I would go to an ENT ASAP! A collegue ignored a white spot and lost half his tongue. Not to scare you, and his was white, but anyhting odd like that needs to be seen by a professional.

I agree- go to an ear, nose, throat doctor. There is a lot of oral cancer being diagnosed- my hub included.
It very well could be nothing.

Thank God that whatever it was has completely disappeared.

Maybe you are one of those who stick pens/pencils in your mouth w/o realizing it? Glad it's gone! If it comes back and you don't suck on pens, see a doctor.
