Jody Steel’s Thigh Doodles Can Be Mistaken For Tattoos

College student Jody Steel found a really cool and interesting use for her upper leg while in lectures at Emerson College in Boston, she creates thigh doodles that can be mistaken for tattoos. While some got into trouble for doodling, Jody actually got hired by her professor at Emerson College in Boston to illustrate a novel. They’re so good that they’re often mistaken for tattoos.

Most girls can remember a time when boredom in class lead to doodling on your knee or painting your fingernails with Wite-Out. Most thigh doodles were never more prolific than a one dimensional heart or a daisy.

When asked why she didn’t just doodle on paper, Steel told HuffPost Weird News, “I really started because honestly, I didn’t have any paper around. I was drawing a lot in class, and people began to notice … I’m just really pale and my skin is almost equivalent to paper.” [via]
