From May 6 2014 to October 18 2015, the Musée Quai Branly, in Paris, is home to the Tatoueurs Tatoués - Paris Exhibition.

One of the most complete exhibitions of it's kind what travels from the origins of tattoo history in tribes till the present times, going through periods in which tattoos were for the criminals, then the circus, it talks about the religion behind it, the art and how it always keep it self on the margins of society. By the words of the creators of the exhibition Anne & Julien: "The exhibition in intended to explain how tattooing, has never ceased to metamorphose, to disappear and to be reborn"
