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

Artistic Process: Machine Tattooing

Well just so you don't think I've thrown away my machines... here are a few projects I'm working on


 Finished up some double dragons on a client I haven't seen in 12 years or more

 Only got about an hour and a half in on Kim's Sleipner project... but he has another appointment next week :-)

 Continued Melusine on my Italian client.
I really wanted to get this done but after about 5 hours he was twitching too much to put in the hatch shading so he's gonna have to come over again so we can finish it :-(

Continued Sune's Yggdrassil backpiece... only a couple hours at a time. Outlined the roots and the tail of the dragon this session... now we just have to fill it in next week :-)

Keefer made it back from England for the second session on his double dragon leg sleave. Due to the distance it is a little long between sessions... however he sits like a rock and we can easily do 7-8 hours straight. I opted for the Honeycomb pattern in the larger dragon, however I put it in sidways to give it a bit of a "Colinga" feel :-)
