That's actually a really, really good theory! I looked this up, and the condition in question is called Argyria. (Be cautious when Google Image Searching this.) Often, it's caused by silver intake from prolonged skin or lung contact (i.e. while on the job), or from water contamination. This is all coming to me on the spot, but like...if this Argyria is the case with Skunk, maybe he came to hate the wealthy, cushy-living upper class because of working and living around contamination that changed his skin. Like a blue Robin Hood who gives to himself.
