  • From Israel to Leeds

    December, 2020

    A little while ago (or back in the mists of time as it feels after this long year), a customer travelled halfway across the world for a tattoo with me. I recently realised that I never actually wrote about it, so now felt like as good a time as any. For those that may have…

  • With Dr. Martens in Japan

    November, 2020

    Last but certainly not least in my Dr. Martens hat trick of posts: my trip to Japan with them to launch the Tattoo Collection. I was honoured to be invited to to Dr. Martens store in Aoyama, Tokyo for the official launch of the project along with my co-creators Grez from NYC and OT (who…

  • 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…
