Lockdown Paintings

From Israel to Leeds

From Israel to Leeds

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...

Lena Headey at Snake & Tiger Tattoo

Lena Headey at Snake & Tiger Tattoo

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...

Chris Lambert Tattoo on Leeds Confidential

Chris Lambert Tattoo on Leeds Confidential

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...

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...
