an answer, from the man himself, Blake Masters...

Yes, Ethan Embry's tatts are Real....

the triangle tattoo that both Tommy and Michael have on their wrists,
symbolizes "The Hill"...the 2 dots symbolize the 2 brothers...

Very interesting. Thanks Kim. I always wondered and they never explained.
My, how I miss the Show. We should be waiting now for season 4.

Are the Caffees the only ones with the tattoos? If so, what was the significance of Michale showing it to Freddie to illustrate that he was trustworthy?
At the moment, I'm sporting a (temporary) ladybug myself; thanks to my nephew.

If I remember correctly, Freddie and Declan also have the tattoos.
I don't recall which, but one of them does not have the dots. I'd have to
go back to the DVD and check it out.

since the dots symbolize the 2 brothers, I would think only Tommy and Michael have the dots...yes, Freddie and Declan have the triangle tatts..

In my opinion, the triangle synbolizes the Hill, and anyone growing up, in the old 'gang', had the tattoo...it was a way to recognize the gang members....

It is history that members of gangs had one sybol that would unite them all.
