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

Haven't posted anything since before New Years... but I haven't finished anything either. Anyway, here are some of the things I've been working on recently.


 Continued on a Thor's Hammer half sleeve on a foreign client. Added scales and a rune text... just have to finish the dragon under the bicep.

One Dragon, One Serpent... just shading, no runes or scales

 A Bikini Dragon with a little cover up on a Danish soldier... so he wanted it to keep it within the shorts area. We're gonna add a longer rune text to this instead of scales
 Continued on the "Blood Gods" project of Tyr and the Fenris Wolf by adding the tail and started on the shading

 Finished another Fenris Wolf on Henrik. His first tattoo on a very sensitive place... had to take the outline over 2 sessions as well as an extra few hours to touch it up. Alot of pain, but he is already talking about getting the Midgaards Serpent on the other side

 Another wolf and continuation of a Haida sleeve I'm working on... all by hand

Another in the "Blood Gods" series
A foreign client, this time from Holland so no way we could get this all started in one day. We did some peliminary sketches and will take it in smaller bites. I wanted to go with the idea of Gunnar in the Snakepit or Loki bound to the stones... unfortunately he thought that depictions were too martyrly so we opted for the more powerful image of Thor instead
