Le Mondial du Tatouage 2019 in Paris Grande Halle de la Villette

Facing the success of these past few years, Le Mondial Du Tatouage is back in Paris in 2019 for three exceptional days scheduled on Friday February 15, Saturday February 16 and Sunday February 17 at the Grande Halle de La Villette. This is good news for all tattoo lovers and passionate who won’t miss it for anything in the world!

Facing an increasing success for tattoo, Tin-tin (Tin-tin Tatouages, Paris) decided, over five years ago, to bring Le Mondial du Tatouage back to life after 13 years off.

After a successful comeback in March 2013 at the 104 followed by four wonderful editions in La Villette (28,000 visitors in 2014, 32,000 visitors in 2015, 35,000 visitors in 2016 and over 30,000 visitors in 2017 too), the event is back in 2019 and will be set up in the Grande Halle de La Villette again from Friday February 15 to Sunday February 17, 2018.

For three days, tattoo aficionados will meet again in Paris 19th arrondissement to live a new and ninth edition as exceptional as the previous ones.
