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

Inkslingers: Under Huden (Turbine Publishing 2013)

Well, Jacob Schultz from the Copenhagen Ink Fest just finished editing and publishing a book on a few of the artists attending the festival. If the publication sells well there are thoughts of releasing an English version as well as a second edition featuring more of the incredible artists who have come to Copenhagen. Aside myself there are also many friends, Jon Pall from Iceland, Derek Baker from South Africa, Bob Tyrell from USA and Kai Faust from Germany. I have a few copies in the studio... otherwise they can be found at most book stores.
I found the text a little hard to follow at times as they sent each artist a list of questions to be answered, but then removed the questions when printed. Makes to seem like the unconnected ramblings of aging tattooists at times... but then again most of us are :-)
