I too am inclined to think that skin effect plays little part in not
feeling TC discharges. In fact, one can often feel the gap firing rate
modulation and the shocks can be considerable in a powerful coil.
Skin effect is heavily dependent on conductivity. The higher the
conductivity, the closer the bulk of the current reside near the
surface. I would imagine that humans do not stack up too well against
copper in the conductivity stakes.
