Luckly the red in the tattoo is in between the two colors because I am so dark (100% Italian), but I was wondering who else here thought that it was Red?

P.S. I did check this on the official site, and it says that it is indeed orange to represent ore.

P.P.S. GO STEELERS--BEAT DEM CHARGERS!

Never knew that. Always thought it was red myself. Also, congrats on being blessed, as an Italian!

Here's a link to give you a little history of it. However, it doesn't talk about the change from Orange to Red but does mention the originally color in was Orange.
