Artistic and Professional – Hands down, these ladies are the finest tattoo artists that I have seen. If you are seeking work that looks like it came from a Cracker Jax box, this is not the studio for you. Creativity and flair is where they shine and the treatment is top notch.
Even when you throw them a curveball and want something more difficult or out of the ordinary, they jump right to it with an excited, "can-do" attitiude and the end result will be certain to exceed your expectations.
After visiting several other studios in Seattle and in other cities, I would be hard pressed to find anyone that I would trust more that the ladies at Vyvyn's.
Best Tattoo place in Seattle!! – This is by far, the BEST tattoo place I have ever been in (and I have visited many!). I am IN LOVE with my new ink that was done by Ruby Santiago! Ruby and the other artists were so welcoming and friendly, and given my request to add to a tattoo that I already had Ruby took MY ideas, combined them with HER ideas and incorporated them (freehand!) into my existing tattoo and !voila! a magical transformation was made.
I was there with 3 of my family members who also received tattoos on the same day and their ink is also more beautiful than we had even imagined! Price wise, the artist's hourly fees were comparable to others I have seen in the business, the difference here was that the price was well worth the finished tattoo...this is the first time in 4 other tattoo sessions at different shops that I walked away 100% happy and satisfied with my new ink. This one will NOT have to be redone OR added too. I really got what I paid for here! (Ruby, your AWESOME!)
As for the shop itself...it was clean and well kept, warm, welcoming and very tastefully decorated with artwork and wall hangings and other beautiful things to look at. It kind of made me want to grab a nice hot cup of coffee and hang out all day (oh yea, that's what I did!) :-)
I took a stack of card to give to my friends as I have officially deemed this my most favorite tattoo shop ever. I will be getting all of my ink done here in the future. Thank you Madame Lazonga's (aka Vyvyn'ss Tattoo) for a job well done and I can't wait to come see you again!
-Artisitc Tattoo's vs. Regular Joe's!- – Are you serious about getting a tattoo? Or are you one of those people who just walk into any random tattoo shop demanding a tattoo you just picked off the wall? Here's the deal; after walking into countless tattoo shop's all through many cities, there has only been one shop by far that has been the most impressive. I have noticed one thing about Washington tattoo shop's, they only reject you and send you back out the door. Walking into these random tattoo shop's all you see are clip art images that they either ordered or printed off the internet, posted all over the wall or even in their "portfolio's." If your really serious about getting an awsome tattoo and are one of those people who would rather wait until they have found the right shop and the right artists? Than I suggest Vyvyn's Tattoo shop located directly behind the Pike Market Place in Seattle Washington. This shop is no typical tattoo shop, instead its more inspiring, creative, and straight to the point kind of shop. This shop is filled with outrageous art pieces, magazine reviews, and the artists interests in culture. They greet you when you walk into their shop and present you with their amazing portfolio's in which display their actual work and not some clip art images. You will not be disapointed with the finished product and your tattoo will look awsome! You know their serious about their work when they actually take the time to sit with you and discuss your options and outcomes of your decision. They are not your typical random shop, they are serious about the business and are willing to set the desired time that is needed. I definitely recommend Vyvyn's Tattoo Shop, check it out for your self. Prop's to all of you awsome Chick's!
Awesome Tattoo Shop – This tattoo shop is one of the best shops that i've ever been to. Their customer service is outstanding, they are friendly and it gives you a warm feeling when you walk in. They have amazing artwork displayed around throughout the entire shop. Their not like all the other tattoo shops i've been to, where they dont greet you and are not willing to work with an idea of a certain artwork that you had created yourself. I got my tattoo done yesterday morning by Suzy Todd(Awesome artist). I love how my tattoo came out. It was better than what i had pictured it. I LOVE IT. Thank You. Yea it did took some time to get my tattoo having to go through a consultation and scheduling appointment. But I have to say it was well worth waiting for. They are artist that give and show their talent at its best. I am gladly to say that i finally found my tattoo shop, and i know for a fact that i'll be back to get more ink from these wonderful Ladies. To anyone that wants a good quality tattoo this is the place to come to.
Completely impressed with my beautiful tattoo!!! – I researched tattoo shops before coming to Seattle and my first impressions of Madame Lazonga's website lead me to drop in while I was in town. I am so glad I did! The ladies working there are so kind and I did not feel awkward walking into their store. They went above and beyond to help me with my design ideas and I felt very at home and welcome there. Jacqueline was my tattoo artist and I highly recommend her. She is bright, funny, and very talented. My tattoo turned out so beautiful and is truly a piece of art that I am proud to wear around!
POOR QUAILITY & HIGH COST! – The atmosphere was mediocre. Just your common tattoo shop. Cluttered with trinkets & random artwork. Except they charge $100 reguardless of the tattoo. My best friend & I went in to get matching script and came out with two totally different tattoos. Mine was worst of all. My script was screwed! And my friends tattoo looked like amature hour. Fill in the blanks style. At least hers was fixable. Mine on they other hand was a disaster. I wanted fine script. And came out with a major screw up. To make matters worst after I complained about the poor quality & high cost. I was told that it was probably my fault. And what did I want to do about it! Can you believe that! They offered to have their "oldest" artist correct it. But, after my first experience there was no way I was going to have any of those women work on me. All I have to say is that I will never refer anyone to get work done by these women. Not only is the quaility of there work shotty at best they over charge. So don't waste your time or money!
Unbeatable tattoo experience – Vyvyn's Tattoo, a.k.a. Madame Lazonga's, is simply wonderful. The atmosphere is surprisingly warm, relaxed and welcoming for a place where you can really get some serious ink, and the artists are friendly, fun, and wildly talented. I got a fairly large tattoo, maybe 15x7 inches, over the top of a smaller one about 13 years old. It was designed and beautifully executed by Suzy Todd, who's the apprentice there right now. I have to think, only at Vyvyn Lazonga's would the 'apprentice' produce some of the very best body art you'll see anywhere! The design is gorgeous, original and beautifully balanced, it suits my body shape well, the lush colors are shaded in lovely detail and delicacy, and the cover of the old design is impeccable. I can't imagine going anywhere else!
Legendary Tattoo Artist & Talented Company – Vyvyn has been a tattoo legend for many years and I'm glad she makes Seattle her home. She did my first truly large tattoo and it even won an award at the National Tattoo Convention! She's expanded her shop in Pike Place Market, added three more artists and a piercer and henna artist. Melissa Thompson is also working with Vyvyn now and she is really an up and coming tattoo star. Her work is outstanding. It's a really cool and comfortable place, and all the artists are truly talented. For your first tattoo or your next the all female crew at Madame Lazonga's is one of the BEST in the city.
