Dorothy Lyczek has been tattooing out of New York City since 2006. A Brooklyn native, Dorothy's style grew out of her fine arts background and global outlook.


Her tattoo work is inspired by techniques first developed through painting. She focuses on large scale, bold, saturated color work. Dorothy's style can be traced back to the vibrant graffiti and tribute mural art in East New York, contrasted with the the constructivist greys in Eastern Europe she soaked in living between the two worlds. She learns new techniques as she travels and collaborates with artists from disparate locations and traditions. Dorothy has tattooed in Brooklyn, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, Hong Kong, Kathmandu, Poland, and the Netherlands.


Dorothy is the owner of Lantern tattoo, located at 504 Wilson ave., Brooklyn, NY, 11221, she tattoos by appointment only.
