UNDATED (CNN) -- Doodling on yourself in class used to get you detention, but doodling on her thighs during class gets Jody Steel attention.
Jody started drawing on her thigh in class at Emerson College because the desks were too small to both take notes and draw. That's how actors like Aaron Taylor Johnson and Joseph Gordon Levitt got on her thighs. She says, "I may have a small crush on one or both of them."
One of her film school professors noticed Jody drawing. Jody says, "She told me to stick around after class, and I was like, 'What?'"
The professor ended up asking Jody to illustrate the book the professor was editing. Jody says drawings like these take her an hour or less.
The Urban Dictionary defines ink poisoning as "a disease made up by parents to get their kids to stop drawing on themselves." and as Jody can attest to, after drawing on herself for two years, she's shown no symptoms.
After her masterpiece, she washes them off at the end of the day. if she doesn't, the ink gets all over her sheets and clothes.
She has to shave every day now that photos of her work have gone viral. And she's being asked to demonstrate her technique. Some of her fans online don't just analyze the art, jody says, "Very creepy messages like, 'You have such wonderful legs.'"
In person, some mistake her art for tattoos. She does have her own art inked on her skin: yin and yang koi fish she designed.
