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: Some new machine work

Well... Skin And Bone celebrated it's 5 year anniversary at New Years!
Just wanted to thank all of our clients who were willing to make the move with us and to all the new clients who have found us. Also a special thanks to all of our foreign clients who make the pilgrimage to get a special tattoo as well as our talented guest artists who have helped to give the studio the respect it deserves.
Just finished up a few machine projects since Christmas I wanted to share.


Yann from the Basse region in France came over for a second visit to finish his Tetra Dragon sleeve

 Close up of 3 of the 4 dragons

Panorama view
Unfortunately the best tattoos can't be photographed as still life... they have to be seen in real life

Thor... you've got mail
Thor's Hammer, Mjølner with his two goats Tanngrisnir & Tanngnjóstr who pull his chariot across the sky to the sound of rolling thunder. Added a nordic dotwork pattern to the background to complete this "Armour of Thor"

A Celtic Cross with Nordic influences
Better to be safe than sorry :-)

 A simple Rune Dragon with the names of his family.
Thick, straight lines and a few dots... a speciality of mine :-)
Done over about 7 hours... excluding the freehand drawing
