Finally got it done...well the start of a long process. Already have a full back of bamboo. I plan to have the bamboo start on my lower leg and work up to meet with the bamboo on my back. She is just the center piece Total time was approx 4hrs. Did it in one sitting. Anything close to the knee hurts like hell!!! Sorry for the horrid cell pics. Once healed I'll get some good ones. Oh and the pic is from above looking straight down on my thigh. My knee cap is about an inch below the bottom of her dress. Pic serves NO justice...I am in awe of his shading and detail. Couldn't be happier.
