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

100 Denmarks Historier

"100 Denmarks Historier"
is a series of small books on various historical topics from Denmarks past published by the Aarhus University. The lastest edition is on the history of Runes from past to present day and I'm very proud to have one of my works printed on the very last page of the final chapter on the revival of Runes in present day.
Thanks to Lisbeth M. Imer for contacting me and including my work :-)
The book is due to be released in mid-September.


 Eric's leg based on a Runestone from Näsby Odensala in Uppland, Sweden.
We thickened up the body to fit the Runetext and also made the heads bigger. This meant that the knotwork had to be much tighter than the original but I think it works much better as a tattoo. 
The Runetext is from Hávamál, stanza 18
"Only he is aware who has wandered much,
and far hath been afield,
what manner of man be he who he meets,
if himself be not wanting in wit."

Eric's leg won awards both for Best Ornamental as well as Best of Show (best tattoo made at convention) at the Malmö Tattoo Expo in 2007
