Who is Tin-Tin Tattoo ?
Born on August 19, 1965, he got his first tattoo from Bruno1, the first tattooist in Paris, in Pigalle2. He spends a lot of time with the emblematic Marcel, a tattooist on rue Legendre in Paris, where he learns the basics of the trade, studying art books (on Michelangelo or Raphael for example) and comic books3. Tin-Tin started tattooing during his military service in Berlin in 19844. He then tattooed in Toulouse, and won a prize at the Bruges tattoo convention in 19894. He then started tattooing in Paris in 1992. In 1999, he opened his own tattoo parlour on rue de Douai, in the 9th arrondissement.
Le Mondial du tatouage
The Mondial du tatouage is a convention that brings together more than 400 of the world's best tattoo artists and has seen an ever-growing number of visitors (more than 32,000 over three days in 2015). After the first two editions held at the Bataclan in 1999 and the Trianon in 2000, Tin-Tin relaunched the Mondial du tatouage in 2013 at the Cent-Quatre in Paris. The requests of participating tattoo artists and the number of visitors being more and more numerous each year, the show is held at the Grande Hall de la Villette since 2014. Concerts are organised during this event. Dog Eat Dog, Orange Goblin and Madball have performed there.
