Keone Nunes




For Hawaiian cultural practitioner Keone Nunes, a tattoo is more than skin-deep; it's a representation of who that person is. On this episode of Long Story Short, I'll talk with Keone about his efforts to learn more about his subjects' genealogy, personal stories and vision, before settling on a design and putting ink to skin the old-school way. As celebrated as Keone is for his authentic tattoos, it's only a weekend activity. He has a very different professional career – as a facilitator.
