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

Moesgaard : "Burn & Pillage Tour" 2013

On the Beach again

Tattoo on Blacksmith Johnny

Freehand Viking Hammer around a much older Neo-Tribal version

Phillip has been a client for many years and makes the pilgrimage from Fyn to Copenhagen to get tattooed. He received a tribal dragon (back in the day) by another tattooiost. I added with a dragon armband, larger shoulder/bicep dragon and finally a Koi fish on his shoulder. However this wasn't enough and Phillip somehow wanted everything tied together. So we added some geometric dotwork to the background to combine his different pieces into a single suit of armour
We added a couple of hand poked bands around his elbows at Moegaard and now will be continuing on his forearms in the Fall

Polynesian spear pattern done in a fan to accent his broad shoulders and slimmer waist

Koi fish with Flower of Life pattern and water

Old Viking age pattern

Some of Lar's handiwork. Before becoming a tattooist, Lars was a warrior and craftsman of high esteeme on the markets. All the cutting, sewing, carving and forging are his work on this pig sticker

More of Lar's handiwork :-)

Martin "Fair(y) Hair" dressed for "Ladies Night" at Moesgaard. Half price drinks for all ladies, naked men or men dressed as ladies. This led to much confusion as the night went on :-)

Continued on a Haida/Polynesian sleeve on a client from Randers. We'll be continuing on the forearn and under the bicep with a wolf and a salmon representing the 4 elements and then filling the spaces between with geometric patterns

Tattooing Lars' ribs with a bound rune of his own design

A couple of Sun symbols 

And Henriette dropped by with her son to show off her newly healed tattoo :-)
