Best Tattoos at Paris Tattoo Convention Part 1

jentheripper in Stories

Its one of the most important dates of tattoo art in the world: indeed, we are refering to Paris Tattoo Convention, Le Mondial du Tatouage.

This year again, French veteran of tattoo art Tin-Tin has gathered more than 300 of the best tattoo artists in the world. Indeed, France was well representated, with for example Manu Badet, Mikaël de Poissy (see our article) and Easy Sacha. But also Europe, with Claudia de Sabe, Marco Manzo, Macko, Delphine Noiztoy, Randy Engelhard, etc. Asia also had its masters: the iconic Shige, Khan, Q Tattoos, etc. while North America had the place of honor with some living legends such as Carlos Torres, Carlos Rojas, Nikko Hurtado, James Tex (see our article) and many more...

The tattoo contests have been judged by legends of tattoo Bill Salmon, Luke Atkinson and Filip Leu, but with so much talent going on, many tattoos done during the week-end were certainly worth a spotlight... If you ever dream to see the charms of the glamour French capital and talented tattoo masters at work at the same time, this is a foretaste with a collection of the best pieces, done by the best artists in the world... Enjoy!
