I just wanted to give a belated thanks to Dr. Lars Krutak for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit us at Skin&Bone the other week. We've been so busy with Conventions, Guest Artists, Exhibitions and Lectures that I haven't had an opportunity to update the blog. Lars was giving a University lecture in Stockholm and graciously accepted to swing past Copenhagen on his way home for a few days. It was great to finally meet his wife and daughter and to receive a copy of his new book on Native North American tattooing.

Aside from the Danes, I was actually surprised with how many different nationalities attended the lecture... Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Germany, Kroatia, Italy, Iceland, Ireland, Poland were all represented :-)

Unfortunately Lars sold out of the copies he had with him... however I received some more autographed copies from Lars in Firenze the following week of which I still have a couple left.
