Fan Tributes Continue for Michael Jackson in Hollywood & Encino

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

It's been less than 48 hours since news of Michael Jackson's death at the age of 50 broke, and the fan tributes from his many local fans continue to pour in at significant locations around Los Angeles, including the Jackson family home in Encino and Jackson's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The tributes include flowers, candles, notes, and mementos, and already commemorative T-Shirts are up for sale from enterprising capitalists. A woman showed off her brand new Michael Jackson tattoo (on her, err, rear end) for a photog--one of the few who have added their images of the fan tributes to our LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr.
