ABOUT THE 8TH EDITION

The International Lille Tattoo Convention, the art of tattooing in Lille Grand Palais

On February 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2023 the International Lille Tattoo Convention is settling in Lille Grand Palais to introduce you to the art of tattoo in all its forms. This year mysticism and white magic are invited to the convention.

From the traditional so-called “old-fashion” tattoo to the avant-garde and current styles, all tattoo styles are represented. This is the opportunity to let the greatest tattoo specialists embellish your skin.

A program renewed every year!
The International Lille Tattoo convention is more than 370 artists of all nationalities. Exceptional tattoo artists of national and international renown. You will find many merchants and a village of creators as well as cabinets of curiosities, graffiti animations, a food court and bars.

How to get a tattoo during the convention?

With or without an appointment, the International Lille Tattoo convention is THE event not to  misson February 3, 4 and 5, 2023 at Lille Grand Palais.

#new

This year, the International Lille Tattoo Convention has even more new things in store for you!
From February 25th to 27th, Lille Grand Palais will host a selection of tattoo artists from the Chicano culture. They will pay tribute to the emblematic motifs of this style: black & grey, made of religious iconography, ultra-worked lettering, portraits of clown women called bandidas, or cholas like the poster of the 7th edition of the International Lille Tattoo Convention.
For the 7th edition, urban culture will be honored with a corner dedicated to sneakers, graffiti artists and DJs who will take over the show during the weekend.
