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

Artistic Process / Year of the Dragon

Finished up a few Dragons this week and figured I should post them before the New Year. Of course on the Asian calendar that isn't before February... but just in case the Mayan calendar is correct :-)

Freehand calf wrap over 2 visits on an Italian client... went more asymetrical on this one, which I think also works better dynamically 

Finally finished the Quadrupal Dragon Sleave, but still have to get some better healed pictures of it after New Year

Finished up Allan's sleaves... 2 Dragons on the right forearm and a 3 dragon chest and sleave on the left. The right chest and shoulder are not my work. All of the dragons have different scales.

Finished the Yin-Yang Dragons as well... used sharper scales in the one and softer/rounder scales in the other
