iankualii ...I had to share a vimeo link to this beautiful film which captured the wonderful experience that my uncle Keone Nunes had with 90+ year old Butbut tattoo practitioner Whang-ud. Keone journeyed to the mountains of northern Luzon, Philippines to meet Whang-ud. This encounter revealed a deep connection between the traditional tattooing practices of Polynesia and the Philippines. I have so much love and respect for the work he continues to do for Polynesia and honored that he gave Luna her powerful Hawaiian name. If you have love for the ancient practice of tattoo you should check out the short film here... http://vimeo.com/m/63826121 2d

iankualii ...Now that I'm back home and rested up I can reflect more on the amazing experience creating in the Miami Marine Stadium. Considering we only had two days to work and I'm still trying to master this new paint paste cut and peel technique I feel great about what was accomplished! Thank you again to @arthistory2014 @loganhicksny and the Oneil family for letting me be part of hopefully saving this iconic structure, @liquitex_usa for your gracious support in supplies, @elbowtoe and @joeiurato for helping me on the last leg of cutting, love to my whole Miami family see you all soon, Lori Zimmer your humor and honesty help me immensely when in doubt, Robert Meltser for always keeping the vibe pleasant, all of the artists you killed it and to my Mentor @dozegreen thank you for guiding this kid thru realms of chaos and making me stronger when I reach the other end of the path its truly an honor to be your last true student... 1w

iankualii ...Had an incredible time creating alongside some amazing artists for a great cause. Shout to @arthistory2014 and @loganhicksny for letting me get down and huge thanks to @elbowtoe and @joeiurato for helping me out with the speed cutting on the other half of my wall. Definitely not dissatisfied with what was created in two days time. Till next time Miami family... 2w
