For the past couple of weeks I've been thinking hard and heavy about getting a tattoo. I am leaning towards several different things and the first being the ABB mushroom design tattooed on my calf. Here are the other two ideas I have had.





Are these designs in which a talented tattoo artist could do. I'm new to the tattoo world so forgive me for not knowing anything. Would I need some type of template for the artist?

I know a lot of you fellow brothers and sisters have tattoos and just need some advice.

any good artist can do either of those designs without a problem. but a GOOD artist will tell you that the with that says allman brothers band would have to be done somewhat large so they could get the size of the letters to mesh well with each other. and so the letters will have enough space between them so after 30 or 40 years they wont bleed into each other. the mushroom logo also wouldnt be a problem at all, just have to be a little bigger than that and also the black underside to the mushroom would have be a little different, or not black at all because it wouldnt do well over time. here's an ABB style tattoo that i have on my wrist...

Anyone have the photos of the Warren and Duane face tattoos? They are great. I don't have them otherwise I would post them.

For the Allman Borthers Band logo find the person that everyone says is "THE" one to go to for doing clean line work.

I had lots of success using this method to get my "Skull & Roses", which to me is very ABB-related.

My brother Twiggs had Duane's face tattooed on one shoulder and the intitials of the original band members in a band around his upper arm. Twiggs told me Gregg said when he saw it, "I see you put me right under your armpit!" They both got a laugh out of that.
I'll post a photo if I can find it.
I don't have any tattos, but being a lawyer I've always admired the tatto "13 1/2" which you see on some inmates in prison. It stands for twelve jurors, one judge and half a chance!

Look at the inside of Eat a Peach - a treasure trove of ideas.

I think that this is a ABB related tatoo story............................The best tatoo I ever saw was on Joe Dan's ass. HA! HA! He had Mighty Mouse, flying out of you know where, with the cartoon caption," Here I come to save the day!" on his ass cheek. I was told I needed to post this, I hope I have not made a mistake.......................HA!

I'm not really into a tatto for myself, but if I was I would incorporate the Gov't Mule Dose logo into it somehow. I love that Dose logo both in the oldschool and newschool styles.

I posted in the forum that I would love the Dose logo. The three mule not the 4 mule dose logo. I would have the names in the three mules, the top would say Gov't Mule and the bottom Music for your ASS!

I'm a "blank," I think they call it. Maybe someday, definitely music related. But, along the lines of Brian's here, if it ain't gonna be a work of art, why bother? That's one of the nicest tattoos I've ever seen.

This might work in a single color:



Peace.

I've got the classic ABB shroom (with no words or ABB name) on my lower back. Hurt like hell but worth it!
