That depends on a number of factors. It is entriely possible to penetrate the skin with a BB-Gun, especially one you made yourself.
But I expect you'll be careful. An option used by a friend was a real gun with plastic bullets that had only a primer, no powder. Evidently they were inteded for indoor target practice vs paper targets.

I've done a lot of basement target shooting with my .38 and primer-powered wax "bullets".
I just drill out the primer hole larer than normal (and these cases are NEVER to be used with powder again!), seat a primer, then press the open mouth of the case into about 1/2 inch of wax.
I get pretty good accuracy out to about 25 feet, and the barrel self-cleans the next time you fire a regular round through it, though you want to check for "duds" possibly obstructing the barrell after each basement session is over.
Collect the wax bullets, melt 'em down, and use 'em again.

I used a regular BB gun, but only pumped it once, not enough to break the skin.

I used to have a BB machine gun many years ago. It was butt simple with only 1 moving part and used a can of R12 for the power source. The mfg did offer an adapter to use compressed air but in the '70's R12 was cheap and you didn't need any steenkin' hose.
The thing worked quite well and never jammed. It would spew BBs at about 4-5 per second rate and had a range of about 50'. The range would drop off quickly during a long burst as the R12 can got cold and its pressure dropped. This shouldn't be an issue with a pressurized air feed and the range could be greater depending on how high a pressure you design the thing for.
The core unit was basically a hollow chamber that could take x lbs of pressure and had 3 ports. 1. The BB fill port with a screw on cap. 2. The BB exit port, a tube attached at the top which channeled the BB's to the barrel. There was a slight funnel shaped entrance to this tube, the widest part was small enough that 2 BBs would not fit. 3. The freon/air entry. This was a dip tube which extended to the bottom of the chamber.
In operation the entering gas from the dip tube stirred up the BB's into a cloud and they then entered the exit tube. The trigger was connected to a valve on the gas feed tube.
This should be enough info to get your creative juices flowing. Hope this helps.
