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

More Haida Tattoos done using Traditional Hand Tools

Continued on a few Haida  projects using traditional hand tools early after the New Year

Finished the Haida Eagle this week :-)  Lars commented to some new clients that my hand work was sharper than my machine work., While this is true... I just hope he meant it as a compliment :-) The client's son's name is "Diamond" for those of you wondering :-)

Loki blocked out the pattern for the second eagle I was working on... made it much easier for me to just fill in the details. I'm planning on more collaborations with him in the future :-)

The finished result...

and the result of the salmon beneath the Eagle.

 Loki and I had a few discussions over the colour scheme... as he thought it was a salmon and should contain red.
