Baum Fest / Barcelona Tattoo Expo is a European reference festival of urban trends.
It was born in 1996 under the name of Barcelona Tattoo Convention in Sants, and since its inception integrates other trends such as Graffiti, skateboarding and the most underground shows at that time.
25 years later, under the name BaumFest, more than 8000 artists from all over the world have passed through the festival, tattooing, painting, dancing or competing in the different areas that make up the festival. We have been visited by more than 250,000 visitors who have been able to see live the art that is breathed in Baum Fest.
This year, we celebrate our 25th anniversary with the illusion of reaching many more and without losing the main objective that marked the beginning of this project.
The standardization and professionalization of the tattoo sector in Spain and the different urban trends.
Tattooing is no longer a stigma, but neither is it a fashon.
Fashion is fleeting, tattooing is forever.
