What effect will watered down bleach have on a screen printed t-shirt?

I've got some white t-shirts with a black screenprinted logo on them. I was hoping to tie dye them then flick bleach over it. What effect will this bleach have on the screen-printed design?

FYI - We don't have the screen-printing equipment - we order in our t-shirts pre-printed so dyeing/bleaching before printing isn't too possible.

Hi UKT it varies from ink to pigment & the overall printing system if tees are done with discharged inks & haven't been cured rightly then may be they bleed out specially if they have sharp edges.
if it is a pigment then may be it will crack in some regions where the bleach liquor will dump in high concentration.
also it depends on peroxides,percarbonate or chlorine based bleeching system, there concentrate with water & the dipping time.
attached find my results.
