Last Year I was invited by Marisa Kakoulas to submit photos to her first American publication... a book called Tattoo World. This year the publishers of Tattoo World decided to come out with a calendar version of the same book for the holiday season. Being that Tattoo World contains work from 150 of the top tattoo artists in the world it was impossible to cut it down to just 12 photos and still represent the scope of the book. Unfortunately the photos had to be smaller montages for each page... however on the plus side, you get more incredible work to look at :-) Each month contains tattoos which are based loosely in the same style. I'm very proud to have had 3 of my tattoos represented...
while in December 2 of my dragon pieces are slipped in amongst the more colourful asian offerings.
Hope you all have a Happy Holidays - Colin
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.
