After receiving his introduction to the world of tattooing in the late ‘80’s, Big Sleeps has since come into his own as one of the culture’s most well respected artists; earning him stints with Lowrider Tattoo, Will Rise Tattoo, and Modern Ink, to name a few. He’s collaborated with a slew of well-respected artists and companies including Sullen, OG Abel, Boog, Norm, Slick and Dissizit in a variety of critically acclaimed and commercially successful mediums.
Big Sleeps is truly a survivor in every sense of the word, and the streets that nearly swallowed him whole remain bound by intricate, spray-painted letter styles which act as a code of survival called “the placa,”− a localized from of graffiti writing found on neighborhood walls, park benches, bus stops, and fences. It is self expression in the most territorial sense, and while it serves many purposes to those who live amongst these writings,
it served more as a silent mentor and inspiration for Sleeps, who absorbed the intoxicating perfection found in the carefully stylized scripts. “My influences came from the stuff I saw growing up,” he says. I think my whole life was an influence in a way. Seeing everything around me on walls, fences, and buildings just walking to school, it just motivated me to try to make my art; I find beauty in different s**t.”
