Take a leaf out of the font property:

<'background-color'> || <'background-image'> || 
<'background-repeat'> || <'background-attachment'> || 
<'background-position'> [ / <'background-size'> ]?] | inherit


background: red url('tiedye.png') repeat 0 0 / 100px 100px;

This has the benefit of being consistant with the solution used to
solve the problem elsewhere.
