Is there a picture that shows the actual "mushroom" tattoo that is on the calves of all the band members? I'd like to see what the orginial tattoo looked like.

Woody's....kind of small, but that gives you an idea how small the tattoos are.



Gregg's 'shroom...

Somewhere on this site in the photo section, there is a photo of late roadie Mike Callahan (RIP) wearing shorts and you can clearly see the tattoo, it is much larger than Woody's BTW (RIP)

Illness is correct. Tuttle did the original 'shrooms. In the photo of Neil and Gregg's leg, Neil was doing some work on Gregg in 1979. Not sure if maybe Neil was doing some touch up on Gregg's 'shroom or not.

I'm not sure if it was Lyle Tuttle who did them, but it was Tuttle's parlour. This has since relocated from the Tenderloin to Columbus Avenue.

I read recently somewhere that Warren would not have one. Does Derek?
