Alex small.jpg

Alejandro Dzul

Alejandro was introduced to art at an early age growing up in Los Angeles. His talent was apparent from the beginning as his early sketches began earning Alejandro commissions from neighborhood families. He began his career as a tattoo artist when customers began to request custom tattoo designs from him. Alejandro finds that the most rewarding aspect of the tattoo process is utilizing his skills to develop a design that realizes his client’s vision and desires. He enjoys creating something that symbolizes one’s life experiences and dreams. He has now been tattooing for 20 years, and has cultivated his craft and his business at Dzul in Belltown for the past 10 years. Alejandro also acts as the Director of Business and Marketing at Dzul Ink Lounge. His personal goals include publishing a book of his photography and tattoo designs, and to showcase his artworks at professional galleries. After a small reprieve to focus on spearheading the business’ growth, Alejandro has gotten to throw himself back into his first passion of tattooing and urges you to keep a lookout in the near future for new work.

Jacob Dzul

Jacob has had a lifelong "obsession" with creating art. He showed talent at an early age, and was encouraged by his parents, especially his father who assisted Jacob with his drawing homework in elementary school. In school, Jacob would often get caught sketching pictures instead of focusing on class, where he would trade drawings with classmates for pieces of candy. Jacob's unique style is inspired by Mexican-American and pre-Hispanic art and infused with the flavor of the street and urban graffiti art. Jacob admires all types of body art, but has a special appreciation for fine line black and grey tattooing. Jacob's talent has established him as one of the most sought after black and grey tattoo artists in Seattle. He is also highly accomplished and well versed in all tattoo styles including: portrait, vintage, and full color tattoos.

Cata Dzul

When Catalina was growing up, nontraditional piercings were not so common. As a young girl she was struck by the beauty of a girl who had three piercings on each of her earlobes. Catalina was so enamored with the girl’s piercings that it inspired her to put multiple piercings in her own ears. The multiple piercings made her feel beautiful and transformed. In her words, “the rest is history.” This was the start of her interest in the art of body modification and eventually led to her work as a body-piercing artist. Catalina completed the Fakir Musafar Basic Body Piercing Intensive training in San Francisco in 2006. She has been practicing as a professional piercing artist in Seattle since 2006 as well. Catalina has also completed instruction with David A. Vidra, an authorized OSHA instructor.
