Life Drawing: Tattoo Model

We had a great model for life drawing, and it was his first time, did a smashing job.
I have to think it is quite nerve wracking the first time, especially with all these people staring so intently and scribbling away.

He was covered in tattoos which inspired me to play with the lines.
Didn't want to draw all the tattoos, but enjoyed incorporating elements. My main goal this week was those tiny lines that suggest where a muscle or bone is under the flesh.
That kind of detail requires major staring.
