I printed it with pla and it works like a charm

Will this print in a 3d printer without additional support material etc? Also is it safe to use an an actual mug?

Nylon is the best filament for this, as it is food safe and has a high melting point.

actually, not really. You can coat in something or other, may be an epoxy of some kind, then it is safe but nylon/abs/pla are all not safe (and dissolvable and flex filament). search the web for a epoxy if this is a must-print, as I am not an expert

I would imagine it would require some support when printing. But to perfectly honest I'm not sure, I'm quite novice in this department. I'm only just jumping back into modeling with future plans of extending that into the realm of 3d printing.

To my understanding most 3d printed materials are not "food safe". Unless of course you were referring to fears of an attack by an octopus, in that case it's completely harmless.
