I'm thinking of a Skinner who's weird attuned. A soul artist. Like he can draw souls, real people's, the ghosts too. He draws on both paper, walls, and skin too, and he's tattooed himself everywhere he can reach with these drawings. He'll work with any surface he can mark and any thing that makes a mark.
Most people are too distracted, at first, by the swirling tattoos that cover most of Sketch's visible skin, to really think about the rest of him too much. His face is striking rather than handsome, with a nose a bit on the beaky side and arresting dark eyes with dark heavy brows that seem to look into you, often from behind heavy black-framed glasses. There's rarely any hostility in them, but many find the penetrating quality of it to be disquieting. Lots of people around here have tats of course, but when someone says "look for the guy with the tattoos," everyone knows who they mean.
He keeps his scalp and face clean shaven most of the time, because he's tattooed most of his head, though the designs that run across his face are made of such thin lines that at a distance they're hardly visible. Within 5 or 6 paces, the fine designs become obvious, almost like the fine cracks on old oil paintings, but they seem less than random. The lines pick up more variation in thickness and color as they go other places on his body. There are still open spaces and always a partially complete design somewhere. Occasionally his hair and beard do grow in a little, a dark brown, but it's never long till he shaves it again. The skin that isn't covered with ink is a medium brown with a reddish undertone to it.
The tats themselves are something. At first they look like standard raft gang tats, at least on the arms (which indicate to those in the know that he's been part of at least 4 rafts), but soon they move into something else entirely. Most people who look at them too long get a case of the willies. Past the designs though, Sketch is nicely built for a man, tall, lean and toned. The brown, heavy fabric pants, hiking boots and unremarkable work shirts actually don't hide his frame much. He sometimes wears a beat up brown leather coat which has designs similar to the tattoos burned all over it, giving his look an odd sort of coordination. Actually he's begun embroidering patterns in all his clothes. He'll mark anything with anything. He doesn't get cold easily so it's not unusual to see him in short or no sleeves, particularly indoors. Anyone who's seen him work knows his hands are steady as a rock.
He's around 28 or so. He's been with the raft gangs so long that they refer to him as "OG"
Gear: An old M1911 .45, A pair of heavy black framed eyeglasses, And of course the tattoos. Oddments worth 1 Barter.
Not sure what he's using to tattoo with, I guess that's part of his oddments, tattooing stuff, ink, paper (I figure he makes it. Making paper isn't hard.) that he folds into sketchbooks.
