Flamenco is a Spanish/latin style of music that uses finger playing on guitar.

In terms of using it on bass, it is a matter of adapting a "classical" style right-hand technique. Basically you use your thumb, index and middle finger to pick the strings.

I have seen this fingering extended so that you use all the fingers on your right hand, each one plucking a specific string. You want to aim for a constant fluid motion with all your fingers.

Check out some flamenco and classical pieces and maybe you'll be able to adapt some techniques from playing them.
