In the way you are using "superficial" it will mean " being on or near the surface".Thus the answer is "YES" the skin is a superficial organ - BUT -"NO" the skin is not "superficial" specifically to muscles - it does not surround muscles, it surrounds the whole body and the muscles are beneath (and some in - the ones that raise the hairs) the skin.

Skin is superficial to muscles. Superficial means above, while deep means below. So muscles are deep to skin and dermis is superficial to muscle tissue.

There is no connective tissue that holds muscles to the skin. That would be dysfunctional because you would have very limited motion. There is, however, connective tissue between the muscles and the skin, but they are loose and do not bind one to the other. The tissue between the skin and the muscles is called superficial fasia.

The subcutaneous layer of the skin is not actually part of the skin, though it is usually mentioned when discussing the anatomy of the skin. It is also called the hypodermis, or the superficial fascia. It is a layer underneath the true skin and has blood vessels, adipose tissue (stored fat), nerve cells, and lymphatic capillaries. It is the loose tissue that is between the skin and the muscles. The layer that covers the muscles underneath is called the deep fascia.
