The 2019 Mondial du Tatouage will be its 9th edition. It took little time since the revival of this legendary gathering, created in 1999, for the Mondial to become the biggest event in the tattoo world, as well as the most visited on the planet. With its 420 tattoo artists from around the World, the Mondial du Tatouage proposes a wide range of styles, which will take you through the endless universe of this art and all its forms of pictorial representation.
This great gathering of bruised and colored skin will thus once again take place at the Grande Halle de la Villette. In this late 19th century edifice of 20000m2, and its incredible, warm atmosphere brought by the glass walls and metal beams, you can admire the myriad of artists at work, as well as enjoy the many other attractions. Concerts, food trucks, specialized books, and tattoo equipment for professionals, but most of all, the tattoo contests, which are truly the most awaited moments of the weekend, as much for the artists as for the public. There are 24 trophies, given to the best artists in various categories. This year, a panther head, sculpted by Tin-Tin will be given to the winners.


We were proud to welcome back our prestigious jury - tattoo legends Kari Barba, Filip Leu, Luke Atkinson, Bill Salmon… And for the 1st time this year Mark Mahoney !
