Horror and art unite for one special week-end in Lyon


Are you already missing Halloween? Not to worry, you can come admire some of the best tattoo artists’ work while also basking in a horror ambience at the Halloween Tattoo Convention from November 3rd to 4th 2018 at Espace de la Tête d’Or.



The FMR organization was created in 2013 by a group of entertainers who also happened to be passionate about tattoo culture. They then went on to set up this convention to gather all those who had the same interests as them and shed light on specific artforms.
