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

Lars Krutak: Tattoo Traditions of Native North America

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 :-)
