Nicole Lourinho is a visual artist, drawer, photographer and tattoo apprentice from Lisbon, Portugal, where she currently works at the Queen of Hearts Tattoo & Piercing Studio.
With a strong background in the hardcore and rock scene, Nicole started down the path of photographing her friends, concerts, and drawing and painting until she found out that tattooing was the path she wanted to take. During this time period Nicole also realised the importance of conveying her own perspective to as wide an audience as possible and thus begun working using unique techniques through sounds, imagery and colors.
In this episode of the Creative Diaries by FRS, Nicole takes us for a ride across Lisbon as her hometown and inspiration source as she creates and describes what motivates her and how she perceives herself. Check out more draws by Nicole below!
