Welcome to the international square of tattooing, where each year thousands of people meet to share – at all levels – their passion and love for this art!

From March 9th to March 11th we have been in Paris, at the Grande Halle de la Villette, and here is a sneak peek of what we saw during a three-day full immersion into the most current tattoo art scene.

The event is characterized by Tin Tin, whose savoir-faire and efficient organizational team, managed by his partner Esther, provided expert care for the almost 500 tattoo artists and numerous exhibiters who participated in this new edition.

… And it would be impossible to make even a quick list of everyone present: there were legendary artists who were so popular that many people wanting a tattoo from them were put on waiting lists; there were the currently trendy tattooists who are super cool on social networks, and then the French and other tattooists who happily accepted the fun and energizing challenge of walk-ins, who kept them busy as they brought their clients’ ideas to life on skin.
