This Tattoo Tenor takes its design from traditional Hawaiian body ornamentation and inspiration from he Pacific Islands. 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 a Hawaiian turtle (honu), a symbol of longevity and endurance rendered in a Polynesian tattoo style. The fret markers are stylized sharks teeth. This tenor uke boasts a clear, resonate sound both by virtue of its Tenor body and Mahogany construction. Beautiful sound - tremendous value.
