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

Børre Viking Market, Norway

Skin&Bone on the road again

Tattooing Tor Ole with a raven. (Boff did the raven on his other arm)

Still have to do the feet

Love the spiral shoulder/shoulder placement

A wolf/dog protecting a chest.
The original design comes from the bottom of a silver bowl unearthed in the garden of the house where he was raised in Sweden

The tattoo next to a silver copy of the engraving... I took a little liberty with the design but I think it makes a much better composition.

Emil just turned 18 and is the son of friends of ours. He got the same design which his parents had tattooed at Lejre several years back with his entire family surrounding him :-)

A strong Valkyrie with shield and spear... not the typical depiction offering a horn of mead

The strong woman owning it

Kim is retired and has a large portion of his body covered with tattoos.
When he asked me to do his hands I declined, due to the fact that it is illegal in Denmark to tattoo on the face, neck and hands.
Not to be detured, Kim travelled to Norway to get the first one done... next stop, Iceland in September :-)
