  • Customising Dr. Martens at Rebellion Festival

    October, 2020

    Following on from the last post, not long after Dr. Martens brought out the limited edition Tattoo Collection, with artwork by me, Grez and OT, they took me along with them to the world-famous Rebellion punk festival in Blackpool. If there’s one thing you can count on at Rebellion (apart from punk music obviously and…

  • Chris Lambert Tattoo x Dr. Martens

    October, 2020

    OK, this was a little while ago now, but time has no real meaning at the moment, so I thought I’d post about it now! Back in the mists of time (summer 2018) Dr. Martens released their Tattoo Collection. They asked three artists from across the world, including me, to design a pair of classic…

  • #WorkingSafely at Snake & Tiger

    October, 2020

    I don’t really need to say it, but it’s been the strangest six months in living memory, and tattoo shops have been another industry hit particularly hard by Covid-19. We of course closed Snake and Tiger as soon as it became necessary and only reopened when we were safely able to do so. We’ve always…

  • Lena Headey discusses her love for tattoos

    June, 2019

    As you may have previously seen on the blog I had the pleasure of tattooing actress Lena Headey at our shop, Snake & Tiger in Leeds. Lena is an actress known to millions across the globe as Cersei Lannister from hit HBO series Game of Thrones as well as starring in feature films such as…

  • Lena Headey at Snake & Tiger Tattoo

    October, 2017

    Now, we’ve tattooed celebrities before, but at Snake & Tiger Tattoo we can be trusted to be extremely discreet and would never publicise anything that someone in the public eye did not want on social media. But when said famous person posts it on their own Instagram, and tags you and your shop then it’s…

  • Chris Lambert Tattoo on Leeds Confidential

    August, 2017

    Leeds has always been a hotspot of awesome creativity, and even in the (almost) two years since I opened my shop Snake & Tiger (where does the time go?), some brilliant new tattoo artists have emerged alongside the experienced hands that have earned their reputations over many years of top quality work. “Leeds is home…

  • Snake & Tiger meet Fred Aldous

    August, 2016

    Earlier this year, I was invited, along with my business partner at Snake & Tiger Tattoo, Gareth Miller to Fred Aldous to paint a canvas for them, live. Fred Aldous is an awesome, independent craft shop, that’s been going in Manchester since 1886. They opened their second store, in Leeds, just last year and since…

  • When Life Gives You (Keith) Lemon

    July, 2016

    We do get the odd famous face in Snake & Tiger, the shop I own with Gareth Miller in Leeds (Thornton’s Arcade to be precise). Obviously we are the absolute soul of discretion and try not to dish the Celebrity Juice… though we do sometimes get mementoes. Just the other day, local Leeds boy, TV…

  • A Colourful Life – The Old School Tattoo Colouring Book

    July, 2016

    Colouring in for adults has been a thing for a while now. But who wants to spend hours colouring in floral wallpaper patterns when you could be doing something FAR more cool? I’m pleased to say that the Old School Tattoo Colouring book, a collaboration between myself and Custom Plugs, is now out and available…

  • The World Atlas of Tattoo

    July, 2016

    While it’s fairly true that the world of print has definitely been overshadowed by digital, there’s still nothing quite like flicking through a real, illustrated book. The World Atlas of Tattoo was published last autumn and is a beautifully printed, heavyweight hardback book, featuring the work of just 100 of the world’s best tattoo artists…
