ARTIST - MONTREAL, CAN.
Noemie La Thug is a professional tattoo artist since the summer of 2016. Her personal path and experience in visual arts contributed to her rapid growth within the tattoo industry. First, she earned a college degree in plastic arts. At that time, she aimed at a painting career, but then she earned a bachelor’s degree in visual arts from Concordia University where she discovered a passion for screenprinting, which became her support of choice. After graduation, Noemie kept on with screenprinting by working a few years as a production assistant for a talented screenprinting artist, Jason Cantoro, and her agent Karine SK. With them, she learned a lot, whether it be on the technical side of the craft, or on the business management aspect. She then stopped her artistic activities to work toward a bachelor’s degree in graphic design in UQAM. That proved to be a very rewarding experience that convinced her to get back to her foundations and set her focus on drawing more than ever. After two years of studying, she left school and all her jobs and started working independently. Tattooing came shortly after and, since then, she never stopped. With her unique artistic background and a maturity that is palpable through her work, she is now a successful tattoo artist!
