Machlev's studio goes by the name "Dots to Lines," and though it's based in Berlin, Germany, his tattoos have been shown across the web, thanks in part to his stunning Instagram account.

Kantele Koistinen concert kantele with 38 strings Construction[edit] Small kantele[edit] Contemporary five string kanteles (2014) The oldest forms of kantele have 5 or 6 horsehair strings and a wooden body carved from one piece; more modern instruments have metal strings and often a body made from several pieces. Modern instruments with 15 or fewer strings are generally more closely modeled on traditional shapes, and form a category of instrument known as small kantele, in contrast to the modern concert kantele. Concert kantele[edit] Modern concert kantele can have up to 40 strings. Playing[edit] Music[edit] There have been strong developments for the kantele in Finland since the mid-20th century, starting with the efforts of modern players such as Martti Pokela in the 1950s and 1960s.
