I still have more roses to draw, some stuff to touch up, and I've gotta protect the ink, but here's my progress!

hi KalicoKahliaa

that's really, really nice work mate. Kind of serene, reflective and very feminine. My daughter would love that. Any plans to add colour to it?

A tatooed uke. Very cool, cooler than that stick-on stuff. Great job.

I did it with a fine tip permanent marker, kind of like a sharpie, but a bit smoother to work with. I had looked at some art online and based it off of that, sketched it on paper first, then with pencil on the uke, and then with the ink.

I think that since the wood is so dark on the ukulele, I'll probably want to color it...maybe with some bold colors, since the tattoo-style artwork usually has bold, simple colors

I loooove sugar skulls :)

I love your choice of "canvas" the ubiquitous pineapple. ;)

1014: That is quite the artistic nephew you have!

kalicokahliaa: That is amazing. I love when people do that to their instruments. I wish I was as talented as you in that area! Mine would end up looking more like 1014's uke!

ooooooooohhhh noooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
how long did it take you to get over that one 1014? For me , I think the post-traumatic therapy would almost cost as much as the uke itself...

ruined? nah, not at all. doesnt affect the sound at all. and is personalized with a nice story behind it.

i caught him (he was 3 1/2 at the time, now 4) half way through the alphabet. just laughed it off, and let him finish up. then let his brother hit it up with a small drawing. the `ukulele already had an autograph on it (Brittni Paiva), so he probably thought it was ok.

Hey 1014,
Great attitude. Something to aspire to.
