The Tattoo (original title Le Tatoué) is a 1968 French comedy directed by Denys de La Patellière and starring Jean Gabin and Louis de Funès.

The following weapons were used in the film The Tattoo:

Lebel 1886

Enguerrand de Montignac aka Legrain (Jean Gabin) uses a Lebel 1886 fitted with a bayonet to threaten Félicien Mézeray (Louis de Funès) and the two buyers when they enter his house in the beginning, then hands the weapon to Mézeray as he proceeds to show his tattoo. Later at the castle, Legrain gives Mézeray a Lebel with no bayonet.
