This Tattoo Concert Spruce Uke takes its design from traditional Hawaiian body ornamentation. The designs were monochromatic, tattooed in black against brown skin. The patterns and layout were strongly geometric and there were many shapes and symbols representing the natural island world: stones, waves, fish, sharks, turtles, rain, sun, and birds. This design is based on Polynesian tattoo style. The fret markers are stylized sharks teeth. This concert uke boasts a clear, resonate sound both by virtue of its concert body and spruce construction. Beautiful sound - tremendous value.
