Award-Winning Tattoo Artist Helps Women Heal By Turning Scars Into Breathtaking Art
Posted by GreaterGoodness
Award-winning tattoo artist Madame Vyvyn Lazonga has been artfully inking Seattle’s citizens since 1972. Recently though, she’s developed a unique specialty: turning breast cancer survivors’ mastectomy scars into physical works of art.
Women around the country are finding that this sort of cathartic adornment helps them overcome the emotional obstacles that arise throughout their healing journeys.
See how one of Lazonga’s clients is finding peace and strength in her new tattooed body.
In America, we’re lucky to have the resources for early breast cancer detection. But in countries like Rwanda, many women aren’t diagnosed until it’s too late.
