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

Copenhagen Ink Fest 2013

Well, another Ink Fest has come and gone. I just wanted to thank all my friends, famly and clients for making it a wonderful experience. Peter, John, Jesper, Alex and Frans for showing their tattoos... Kim for being in the right place at the right time Pernille, Henriette and Moshe for letting me do some incredible work on them. My friend Kai for supplying Jægermester and a beautiful Viking helmet for first prize in Tribal/Celtic. and especially Nanna... because it is hard to tattoo without a right arm 

Did this Haida Thunderbird on Pernille the first day... I tattooed the same design on her father last month.
 Sort of a father/daughter thing :-)

Kai and Mick talk while I tattoo Henriette on day 2

10 hours outlining on Henriette... she sat like a rock (despite the hangover) but we were both finished by the end of the day

 I finished up Moshe's Haida Dogfish on day 3 to accompany the Mountain Goat we did last month. We just have to add some bird heads above the wings to tie it together and perhaps extend the wings a bit with some dotwork
