Sol Skib | Art Print
Sol Skib, or solar ship in English, is a drawing made in dot work by Colin Dale of Skin & Bone Tattoo. Within the image, he has used a mixture of black dots and solid reds to create a contract between the ship and the sun in the background. He has also chosen to include the sun wheel which is a symbol that appears carved in stone across Scandinavia from the Bronze Age well into the Viking age. Its true original meaning is lost to us like so many other things, but it has since been associated with the sun.
Material & Make
The artwork you will receive has been printed locally using high quality inks and paper to maintain integrity and quality of colour and image.
Your print will arrive on 250gsm uncoated art paper and should be handled with care. It’s preferable to only touch the edges and we recommend mounting these in a frame behind glass.

Rooted in respect for traditional methods, Colin’s technique honours ancient practices from Europe and beyond. With wisdom collected from tattoo masters in Borneo, Tahiti, and Samoa, Colin’s personal history with Inuit and First Nations people of North America has allowed him to utilise techniques that were sometimes hidden or lost for centuries.
