Comic book illustrator, Alex Ross  explained the inspiration for the drawing of a scarred Bruce Wayne (Batman). He said:

“One of the first concepts I did for a DC illustration of Batman, before I’d even done many pictures of him in full costume, was this pin-up of him showing the scars on his back, which I pulled from a story I read as a kid that they referenced his naked back to a character that remarked it looked like a map of scars, but they didn’t show it. So, I always wondered what that would be physically. So, in my early 20s I did a rough version of this piece that I would later update into a black-and-white pin-up in the Batman: Black and White comic book.”
