Things Can Get Crazy on the Streets of São Paulo, Brazil
We’re more than familiar with the city of São Paulo. We’ve traveled there on several occassions, most notably in 1996 when we first met Os Gemeos and created issue 6 of the 12ozProphet Magazine. That was the beginning of a long relationship with Brazil’s largest city.
Things are different down there. Life is a bit more lawless with your common citizen more likely to turn a blind eye than call the authorities. Writers have become more daring, climbing higher and higher, regardless of the risks to put up a new style of tagging, Pixo. With this style writers have tattooed the city.
In the video above you’ll see some of the most daring shit you’ve ever witnessed. The ends to which these guys catch spots, and the spots they are choosing, is mind blowing. It’s both inspiring and vertigo inducing at the same time. shit’s crazy.
