We Are Le papillon

Le Papillon is a private creative collective based in Vancouver. Over the past few years, tattooing has developed into one of the most significant subcultures in the world. We hope to continue to adapt, observe and contribute to this art form by creating a platform that supports our family of creatives in their path and showing the community around us our perspective on tattooing and art in general. Le Papillon comes from the story of a french thief and his pursuit to be free in life. We hope to continue to spread our expression of art, culture, history and integrity to everyone we come across.

Daily Hive

Founder of Le Papillon Studio, Daniel Snoek’s objective for his art is to always expand his knowledge of history and culture. The designs of his work are greatly influenced by the history of French and Italian criminal tattoos. His attention to the smallest details and passion for history are reflected in his greyscale work.
