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

Tatouage 90 Janvier-Février 2013

   My good friend Claire Artemyz just had an article published in Tatouage Magazine in France showing my work recreating prehistoric tattoos as well as the use of related art as tattoo designs. I've been wanting to do something like this for years... showing the original sources, the drawings and the final tattoo. Some of these designs are direct recreations of the symbols while others are my interpretation of the historical finds. 
Claire has previously written articles on my work with Haida tattooing, Ötzi the Iceman and accupuncture tattoos, as well as some of the prehistoric tattooing techniques I use.
