A freckle-tan is the Irish
version of a tan. Unlike most other
races, the Irish
are stereotypically unable to "turn colors" as well as the Italians for example. Thus, we get these uneven dots called freckles. Just
as an Italian or Greek will get a bad tan line, or a German or Irish
person get a bad burn; a 'freckle tan' is what
can sometimes occur for the light skinned
peoples. (Almost like a farmers tan but instead of a tan, freckles are present.)
The skin that is not exposed on ones
have the same lightly speckled freckles that it has always had... the skin is 'white' at the end of the day. The skin however
that was not covered
and WAS exposed to the sun will
be heavily dotted with very dark freckles.
Thus, when the sleeve is pulled, one will
have a distinct freckle line or 'Freckle-Tan'
