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 2020 to celebrate the 10th edition of the world's most visited tattoo convention (1999, 2000, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020!) On the occasion, Le Mondial du Tatouage will once again take over the Grande Halle de la Villette. Le Mondial du Tatouage will return to La Grande Halle for spring for three new dates to save now: Friday March 13, Saturday 14 and Sunday 15, 2020.
For three days, tattoo aficionados will meet again in Paris 19th arrondissement to live a new and 10th edition as exceptional as the previous ones.
On the menu: tattoo contests (election of the best back piece or body suit, best large black and grey or even the best small color…) as well as exhibitions and concerts!
But Le Mondial du Tatouage is first and foremost the place to be for many domestic and international tattoo-artists. So, in 2019, 420 tattoo-artists came to La Grande Halle de La Villette in order to complete thousands of tattoos.
In 2019, many tattoo artists answered the call including L'Oiseau from Cillioure Faubourg Tattoo Club, Richie Clarke from Forever True Tattoo in Liverpool, Misti-Ka Franck Anzalone from Valence, Dong Dong Chou from Mummy Tattoo in China, Fabricio Mello from Casa De Leoes Tattoo Piercing as well as Flo Nuttal, Moira Ramone, Kingsley Hayward from Lowride Tattoo in London, Lorena Arruda from Cologne - Germany - as well as Shige from Yellow Blaze Tattoo and Benjamin Laukis Tattoo without forgetting tattoo artists from the Tattoo Cover TV show with Marty Early Tattoo, Amy Mymouse, Diego Moraes Tattoo and Dodie.Stay tuned to find out more about the artists coming in 2020.
