All the tattooers and tattoo fans present at the Bataclan in 1999 or at the Trianon in 2000 for those great shows, which have since become legends in our collective memory, have been expecting nothing less than a new Parisian event of a decidedly international magnitude.
In 2013, Tin-tin (Tin-tin Tatouages, Paris) and Piero (La Cour des Miracles, Toulouse) presented to you the best tattoo artists of the planet who waited for you once more.
From one century to the next the art of tattooing has come into its own, has come out of the darkness to literally explode onto everyone's skin. The number of tattooists has multiplied by the hundreds and with it the number of tattooed people...
That is the reason why Paris simply had to host once again a convention that befits its international prestige. The tattoo explosion that has taken place on every level of society has also brought with it a brand new generation of tattoo artists.
The best of today's tattooers have benefited from the knowledge and the experience passed on to them by their legendary predecessors, often with baffling ease and rapidity.
Finding their inspiration both in traditional tattoo cultures and in all the range of new artistic and media sources, they have substantially developed, diversified and perfected the graphics of this undeniable art.
The Mondial du Tatouage proudly welcomes the "elders", the less elders, as well as the youngest among the finest "needles" of the world.
