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

Odds and Ends

Although I specialize in Neo-Nordic tattooing, sometimes people will come to me with requests which fall outside of the normal range of things that I do. This could be due to a good reputation, a referal, a person looking for an original look to an old design, or sometimes merely by chance. If the idea interests me I will try to grant their wish as best I can... although I specify that it will be, "in my own style". As I don't specialize in these styles it could require more research and drawing and therefore take a longer time... however I think the results speak for themselves. Here are some examples of things that I have done recently... which I don't normally do. If you have any ideas for a design, please feel free to come in with them so that we can discuss it.
