Want to look like Angelina Jolie, but you don’t think you have the right body? Shake that brain pan and discover that you have what it takes to show off like A.J. As long as you’ve got skin on your back and an artist…with bamboo tattooing, you’re ready to style and profile.
Angelina found that when it comes to body fashion, bamboo isn’t just for pandas. In the hands of talented artists bamboo is a centuries old craft for making someone’s body a work of beauty. The Asian artists remain purists, so you’ll find vibrant colored tigers and animals both real and fantastical. Not one of these body etchers is going to scratch a goofy faced Picasso woman or animal on your rump (Bad form).
Tattooing not your cup of bamboo?
Along with Angelina Jolie, these celebrities wear bamboo clothing and/or buy them for their babies; Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ashley Olsen, Tatyana Ali, Angela Lindvall, Julie Delpy, Jamie Fox and Paris Hilton. Since most of us ask celebs for their autographs instead of what they’re wearing, bamboo clothing gets short shrift.
Can you see yourself pushing a stroller down the sidewalk. You look over and spy Maggie playing googoo with her baby, and your toddler is looking every bit as sharp, decked out in bamboo baby clothes or wrapped in organic baby blankets. Yeah. Bet you wished you donned a bamboo blouse to keep up with the Gyllenhaals.
Bamboo building materials are better known than bamboo clothes. Brad Pitt found that bamboo materials provided quality at affordable prices. You probably think Brad Pitt doesn’t need to watch his pennies. He needs to watch how every cent gets spent because he is using his notoriety, his time and his money to build affordable housing for the survivors of Hurricane Katrina.
Just a personal note… Isn’t it nice to read about Angelina and Brad without being forced to read about you know who?
