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

"Written in Skin" lecture by Dr Lars Krutak... summary :-)

I'd just like to Thank Dr. Lars Krutak for taking time from his busy schedule to fly in for the day to spend some time with us... and especially for giving a very informative and entertaining lecture on indiginous tattooing from around the world. Although given the time constraints he was only able to scratch the surface of the topic... however according to the participants it opened their eyes to realms of tattoo culture they had never imagined before... and hopefully this will spark their interest to seek further :-) 
We'd also like to thank all of our clients, friends and public who attended and stayed afterwards for socializing and discussion.
Unfortunately Lar's new book "Spiritual Skin: Magical Tattoos and Scarification" was quickly sold out :-( However we will be ordering more copies in the near future and still have a few examples of "Kalinga Tattoo" as well as autographed copies of his (out of print) first book  "Tattooing Arts of Tribal Women".

A special thanks to Nanna for hosting and organizing the event :-)
Hope to see you all again in the near future
