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. Check the homepage to see some of the work

New Projects for 2012

When I started Skin&Bone 2 years back there was always the worry that I would be able to get it up and running. Moving locations is always risky and starting a new shop under a new name even moreso. However it seems that this has actually worked to my advantage... as while I've lost alot of walk ins, my regular clients and others who know a little about tattooing have tracked me down. As a result I've been kept busy with mostly large scale projects without the 6 month waiting list filled by smaller pieces :-) The smaller pieces have now actually become a welcome diversion rather than a distraction and I can find more time and inspiration for everything as a result :-)
   Here are a few of the larger pieces I've started in 2012. I will be posting more photos along the way as they progress:-)
   Enjoy - Colin

Start of an Yggdrasil (World Tree) Backpiece... still need to add the roots.

Single dragon full sleave... there is going to be a Rune text in this one.

Full leg sleave... with 4 dragons eating their own tails :-)
