LEARN MORE ABOUT THE 8TH EDITION

The Besançon International Tattoo Show (BITS) is back for an 8th edition – March 21 and 22 at Micropolis in Besançon.

15 years have passed since the 1st Belfort tattoo convention and 7 years since its successor in Besançon – the Besançon International Tattoo show.

The multiplication of events related to tattooing has continued to increase not only in France but also in our region.

Faced with this growing competition, BITS has never stopped innovating, developing and proposing an artistic offer always more qualitative at all levels. The public has always been faithful and the demand for artists to participate has not stopped growing.

The Besançon International Tattoo Show team congratulates itself on this accomplished road and wishes to thank once again its faithful public, the tattoo artists present, the exhibitors and the local associations. You make this possible!

This THANK YOU is all the more sincere because all this support convey a positive and pure image of the vision of the tattoo that we strive to transmit. The image of a Passion that has lasted for 15 years now …

This year the BITS will honor the origins of tattoo with the participation of tattooists working without machines, only with ancestral tools.

The Polynesian Islands and Thailand and will be in the spotlight.

Some of the best tattoo artists of the moment from all over Europe and France will of course be there to share passion and experience with you.

The art of tattoo will always and again be at the heart of the event.

Several designers influenced by the tattoo culture will settle among the many merchant exhibitors. Screenprints, stickers, jewelry, pieces of collections and crafts will be presented to you.
The convention will also be influenced by the tattoo culture but in an exciting way, with a “knife throwing show”. The pretty and tattooed Femke will be the target to avoid.
We will also support the Heavy Gators association their DJ’s will liven up the place by distilling sounds borrowed from the Rock n ’Roll, Punk and Hip-Hop subcultures all weekend.

The rest is a secret, so we’ll see you all on March 21 and 22, 2020 at Micropolis.
