For CHOW #193 - CA Ink on ConceptArt.org (thread here: [link]
) The topic was "Design a character that is at least 25% covered in tattoos. There are lots of types of tattoos, from tramp stamps, to yakuza body suits, to super mario bros half-sleeves, to MS13 face pieces. The style is up to you, but your character should feel invested in their tattoos. Let your creativity flow through the canvas of your character's skin. Have fun with it."
I wanted her to be the devil, not just some tattooed girl, and load it with lots of snake and apple and occult imagery. Woot.
