From February 15th to the 17th, le Mondial du Tatouage of 2019 will be commencing with a devotion to the tattooing arts. The mastery of form, style, and technique at this convention is one of the best of the year...it's something that we look forward to with the utmost anticipation. In this miniature guide we take a look at the shows, contests, and artists that will be present at this event, one which helps bring the global tattoo community to one fabulous place, La Grande halle de La Villette.
Considering this years Le Mondial Du Tatouage has 420 artists, and counting, we clearly can't possibly list them all for you...truth be told however, several of our very own Tattoodo Ambassadors will be there such as Jondix, Guen Douglas, Wendy Pham, Aimee Cornwell, Mike Rubendall, Veronique Imbo, and Miss Juliet as well as some of our personal faves like Chad Koeplinger, Acetates, Yoni Zilber, Koji Ichimaru, Brindi, and Maud Dardeau. The caliber of artists working at this particular event is mind blowing...we'd be happy just to walk around in their midst all day long.
As would be expected of a place like Paris, with such a cultural and historical background deeply ingrained with famous artists and influential art movements, the events and contests at this tattoo convention are nothing but the best. Tattooist and painter Shawn Barber will be painting portraits while Simone El Rana will be helping with the contest winners awards. Violette Wanty, and others, will be endowing a creative atmosphere to the space with their musical performance. There will also be dance specials by the likes of Philippe Decouflé. And, of course, with the Parisian reputation for glorious gastronomic feats, this tattoo convention will be host to several incredible chefs serving everything from dim sum to mouth watering focaccia. We hope to see you there!
