TATSoul Artist Big Sleeps

Big Sleeps

TATSoul Artist



Sleeps grew up in the gang culture of L.A. in the ’80s and ’90s, and a large part of his appeal both as an artist and as a success story is that he’s transformed the roughness and dirtiness of the time period into fine art. While many of his signature styles may be indecipherable hieroglyphics for the uninitiated, the complexity and depth that goes into each of the artist’s creations capture a far greater range of emotion than a more easily legible font could.

“Together, we [came up] with the best lettering needles to execute certain things I had been looking for in the tattoo industry. I finally found that needle that I can use the way I use a calligraphy or brush pen.”
