About Us

Madame Vyvyn Lazonga, also known as “Seattle’s First Lady of Tattoo,” has been considered an icon in the realms of tattoo artistry since 1972.

Consistently reinventing, her work is award-winning and world-renowned, having earned and secured a crown in the annals of tattoo history. For over 44 years, Madame Lazonga has been recognized as an expert in her field and an artist par excellence.

Madame Lazonga was among the first female tattoo artists in the world who went out on her own. She continues to break boundaries, challenge artistic norms, and create unforgettable body art. Much of her artistic inspiration comes from elements of the natural world, cultural motifs, the spiritual, and the sublime.

While appreciative and honoring of all canvases, her particular specialization is in tattooing women who have survived the devastation of breast cancer and its subsequent disfigurement post-mastectomy. Being able to hold witness to the emotional transformation that occurs in these women has been the most rewarding element in her work to date.

In this vein, she sees her art as a kind of energy work, and her work as an artist, as that of a healer.
