Artist Bio:
Thank you for your interest in my artwork! My name is Nicole Palapoli, I am a New York artist whose entire life has been driven by my exploration of visual arts. I graduated from the School of Visual Arts in NYC, studied Art Education at Queens College and studied abroad in Italy and Spain. After becoming a High School art teacher for the Board of Education, I felt completely restricted and needed a full time outlet for my creativity. I began tattooing, quickly reinvented my life and never looked back. In 2012, I opened my first shop "Body Language Tattoo" in Astoria, Queens. After 7 successful years of business, I closed the doors at BLT in exchange for more flexibility to pursue my personal artwork. My latest endeavor "Innerspace Gallery", in Long Island City, Queens. It is a private studio, in which I am tattooing existing clients and select referred clients. Also, I am selling various types of merchandise with my art as the theme as well as offering virtual critiques, lessons and demos. In the future, I'll be making plans for more traveling, live painting, body painting, special effects makeup and murals, so if you have any opportunities, feel free to reach out! And thank you again for exploring my artwork!

Artist Statement:
My artwork exists to illuminate our soul's experience in human form; the duality of love and heartbreak, our connection with nature, sacred symbols and the unified field of consciousness. As it moves through me and onto it's surface, my artwork has given my life a purpose beyond my own healing. My wish is to evoke reflective conversation, deep connections, emotional and spiritual healing in the hearts of my viewers as we co-create a more conscious existence.
