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

Trelleborg : "Burn & Pillage Tour" 2013

From Lejre we carried on to Trelleborg. Last year we returned to Copenhagen during the week to wash, work and answer mails, however the continuous setting up, packing down and driving back and forth for the weekends was a little stressful. So this year we just continued from one market to the next as a holiday. 
Previous years we have been situated down in the warriors camp with Loki's Freemen, however this year we were given an opportunity to be placed up on the market place which was much more visable. 
Being situated beside the Longhouse meant that Loki could hear the shouts of, "Bacon... Bacon!" eminating from it's depths on the night of the Bacon Party. He went into the smokey salty depths to split Bacon and Beer with his Freemen before retired to his chambers while the revelry carried on until the sun rose :-)

Finished up Henriette's Dragon with another 12 hour session
