The Besançon International Tattoo Show is back for a 10th edition on March 16 and 17, 2024 at Micropolis.

15 years have passed since the first tattoo convention in Belfort organized by Jean-Marc Bassand and 10 years since the one that followed in Besançon.

The multiplication of events related to tattooing has not only increased 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 there and the demand for artists’ participation is constantly increasing.

The Besançon International Tattoo Show team is very pleased with this achievement and would like to thank once again its faithful audience, the tattoo artists, the exhibitors and local organizations.

This THANK YOU is all the more sincere because each of your support conveys a positive and pure image of the vision of tattooing that we strive to transmit. A passion that has lasted for over 15 years…

To honor these last 10 years by your side, we have decided this year to make a retrospective of the past editions. Rediscover shows from the past, get a new tattoo from your tattoo artist that you used 8 years ago, have a good laugh in front of your picture from 6 years ago when you were getting a tattoo or buy your favorite poster from 3 years ago. All this will be mixed with today’s trends and a panel of tattoo artists full of talent, knowledge and know-how!

Besançon International Tattoo Show is an event organized by Millenium Events & Communication and Micropolis.

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

Several creators and merchants influenced by the tattoo culture will settle among the many tattoo artists. Screenprints, stickers, jewelry, pieces of collections and crafts will be presented to you.
The convention will also be influenced by the tattoo culture.

The rest is a secret, so we’ll see you all on March 18 and 19, 2023 at Micropolis.

Get a tattoo at the convention!

Do not forget! The BITS is above all the possibility of getting a tattoo on site by essential artists of the current tattoo scene. Contact the tattoo artists directly or discover on site the “Flash tattoos” offered during the weekend. With or without an appointment.
