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

Burn & Pillage Tour 2016: Moesgaard

Moesgaard is always a great way to end our tour
The market is held away from the museum on the beach. As the big battle isn't until the weekend we have the week free to hang out, talk and trade with the other Vikings.
Almost like a real vacation :-)
New stairs were much needed... but after an hour and half of carrying stuff to and from the beach, you really learn to hate these stairs 

Home Sweet Home

Vikings aren't afraid of anything!

Took the first day off and went to Tivoli
Lost the kids for a moment on the one ride they thought was too boring

I wake up to this in the morning and go to bed with this in the evening

and inbetween I just have to poke people

Finished up this Wolf
We started at Blæk Metal in Bergen...
Continued at the Frankfurt Tattoo Convention 
and ended up here... on the beach

He also has some handpoked runes by Habba Nero in Rejkjavik and another Nordic sleeve by Jannicke Wiese-Hansen at Nidhögg Tattoo in Bergen

We travel under the banner of Loki's Freemen for which our son has been named King. 
The symbol of the Freemen is a banner and shields which are half red and half black

I tattooed Daniel with a small shield a year back but had no red to put in it, so we got to finish it up this year. Now it looks like a Pokeball :-) Daniel also has a small spear on the other wrist and a small sword on his hip.
(Those are Loki's shoes)

French client I tattooed earlier this year with a wood carving from Norway of a Viking fleet of ships.
Got to take a healed photo with water as a background... shame it was cloudy that day.

As noted, it is always an honour to tattoo other tattooists.
Got to finish up Trine Glue's Hugin & Munin tattoos... one at Trelleborg and the second at Moesgaard

One healed... one fresh

Family visit
and the weaving of "Bacon Rackets"

Tattooing Jan Jesper until late in the evening with a Thor's Hammer Mask of my own design... inspired by a Danish runestone from Skåne

Jan Jesper's group dropped by to give him a little mead and encouragement

The finished tattoo the following morning

A pod of Porposes that visited us during the week came by to bid us farewell as we carried everything up the stairs again.

Until Next Year
