Nicole Laabs



My career began with an esteemed apprenticeship under Paolo Acuña -- owner of Divinity Tattoo -- in Phoenix, Arizona. In 2010, I finally did some of my first tattoos. For several years I continued to work for Divinity Tattoo until I had the opportunity to take my art to the East Coast-- specifically in Western Massachusetts. I am now currently located in Northampton, MA as a Resident Artist at Nite Owl Tattoo.

Most recently I have begun focusing on large scale projects that primarily work with imagery containing flowers, animals, stylized portraits, and art nouveau elements. I have some previous training in fine art, photography, and graphic design, although much of my experience comes from years of persistence and practice.

I tend to travel regularly to tattoo conventions and continued education conferences. Please explore the tabs the top of your screen to catch up with me at current happenings and upcoming events.
