Neil Dallywater is the "Wonderboy" of the tattoo industry. Former editor for Skin Deep Magazine, Neil personally invited Pat Fish and I to attend Skin Deep's "Tattoo Jam" in Doncaster last year. Unfortunately Neil resigned his position mere weeks before the convention, so I never got to thank him. We caught up again in London where he talked about starting his own magazine... yeah sure, with so many others on the market already?
But Neil not only lands on his feet... he bounces back, with a vengence :-) Within a year he had created one of the most popular tattoo magazines in Britain and was named Tattoo Journalist of the Year!!! Neil's Tattoo Revolution Magazine just celebrated it's first anniversary... and what better way to commemorate this than to come back to where it started :-)
Neil interviewed me when he drove over to Ireland to visit the Traditional Tattoo Festival in Cobh outside of Cork. Despite me babbling for at least an hour, Neil was able to make coherant sense of it all... including my noticable Danglish grammer :-) Issue #12 is on sale for the month of November or can also be downloaded online :-)
Thanks and happy anniversary Neil!
Skin & Bone is a combination gallery and tattoo studio. The gallery will exhibit art and ethnographic handicrafts related to tattooing, while the studio will have Colin Dale tattooing alongside various guest artists throughout the year. Through his years of travelling and tattooing around the world Colin has had the pleasure to meet and work alongside a wide range of tattoo artists and experts working in ethnographic and other specialized styles. Amongst these friends, we have hand-tattooists from Borneo, Polynesia and Japan as well as some of the world's leading artists in Blackwork and Dotwork coming to visit.
