About Us

Tattoo's Reimagined

We are Le Papillon Studios

Le Papillon Studio is the catalyst of tattooing in Vancouver, we aim to change not only the culture of tattooing but also to become a part of its history.

Tattooing is one of the biggest subcultures in the world and one of the oldest art forms known. To build a connection through this craft with every person, showing them our compassion and integrity for tattooing will always be our goal.

Founded by Daniel Snoeks and made complete by all our amazing artists, Le Papillon Studio is our way of life, our home and our family. We will continue to absorb, create and develop in order to share with everyone this beautiful craft, Le Papillon Studio is the future of tattooing.

We start with
an idea

Whether you've got a concept in mind or you're relying on us to get started, we've got you covered. Our artists will help you pick out your placement and stencil the idea out to finalize your vision before we get started.

Then, we get
to work

After the stencil is transferred to your skin, our artists will begin with the line work, then move onto shading and coloring.

Post tattoo
care and final touches

Our artists will dress the tattoo and give you aftercare instructions. It is important that you listen and follow the instructions you are given. From this point on, it is your responsibility to make sure your tattoo is well taken care of.
