This year Barber DTS are hitting up conventions across Europe and even visiting a few ourselves around the globe. We try to get to as many Tattoo Conventions as we can so we can bring the latest products and give you the chance to try and test them in person.

Conventions also give us a chance to meet our customers and so you can put a face to a name with our incredible sales team. So if you see a Barber DTS t-shirt or hoody around please say hi!

Check out where you can find us this year…

Our first convention of the year was the The Mondial du Tatouage. Taking place in its ninth year, the Paris Tattoo Convention brought together 420 tattoo artists from around the world, covering a wide range of styles in the incredible setting of the Grande Halle de La Villette. So whilst you admired this incredible gathering of tattooists you could also take in the stunning building with over 20,000 square metres of cast iron and glass.

To celebrate the beautiful weekend Barber DTS gave away a romantic weekend for two to Paris including flights, hotel and tickets to the Paris Tattoo Convention. We caught up with the winning couple at Tattoo Tea Party and they loved it!
