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

Moscow Tattoo Convention 2014

Well, the Moscow Convention has come and gone for over a month now, however being on the road has not allowed the time to post anything about the event. I really wanted to thank Dmitry Babakhin from 
Bang Bang Custom Tattoo in St Petersburg as well as the crew Sergey Ambrozzz, Mike Amanita, Ivan Hack and Takhir & Anika for looking after us all weekend. And a special thanks to Travelling Mick and Brent McCown for sharing the stage with me.
Great music, great entertainment, great tattoos and great company :-)


First tattoo of the weekend :-)

Amongst the Rus
Tattooed a Raven on fellow artist Nicholai's head

It is always an honour to tattoo another artist, but most tattooists lack space for more tattoos
However there was a little room on the finger tips for some bound runes
For family, physical health and artistic creativity. 

A petroglyph for the first tattoo

 Bang Bang Crew and friends

Another tattooist was collecting a sleeve of tattoo machines done by different artists.
It was a surprise and an honour when he asked me to do a tattoo of my bone handle on him... by hand :-)

Off duty with good friends Brent McCown and Traveling Mick

Back in St Petersburg I did a Nordic Dragon on a client at Bang Bang Custom Tattoo
We plan on doing a matching piece on the other calf in the future
The tattooing was captured on film by Kit Films who made a short video of the event

Russian Autoclave?
