What is that? I've seen that marking on many other aircraft.
@SMSvonderTann is correct. The marking is there for warning ground personnel about engine hazrd. In this photo (of a 737) you can see 'INGESTION HAZARD' written above the line.

In this image it is possible to zoom in to see it much more clearly. Note that this marking is not found in all 737s. The danger area is marked with two lines- one in forward fuselage and another in the engine, as can be seen in @mins photo, which I've put below.

Also, as @mins notes, the lines in 747 are for equipment positioning (to prevent damage to fairing, looks like)
They are the markings for danger zone around the engines telling people to stay out of that area. If you notice, the engines also have that marking as well. They correspond to the side of the aircraft in the danger zone image:
