Nunez is featured in the TLC series, which follows four friends who run a tattoo parlor together in Miamis South Beach. He hopes the series shows that tattooing is an art form and not just slapped on a body for individualitys sake.
In his words, Before the motorcycle TV shows, no one thought you could trick up a bike like that. We will show that we can do things with tattoos that no one thought could be done.
Besides bringing tattoos as art creations to light, Nunez figures the show will shatter the perception that prisoners and tough-looking bikers are the only ones to get branded.
He insists there are just as many doctors, lawyers and celebrities who go under the needle.
Miami Ink premieres Tuesday (Jul. 19).
