LOVE THE ARTWORK HERE OF THIS GODDESS SO MUCH <3

Hey Sam, what’s the meaning behind Kate’s tattoos?

I’m not Sam but I can answer that. You see when Kate was booted out of West Point because of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, she kinda lost her way for a bit. She started doing things just to be a little reckless, trying to refund herself. The tattoos were apart of that.

The red star on her back has special significance though
Years ago, when the world was far more intolerant and bigoted towards LGBTQI people and people had to hide their sexuality, the red star tattoo was a way for queer women to indicate to other queer women that they were into ladies
So Kate, who had to hide her identity as a lesbian to serve in the millitary and was kicked out for not being willing to lie about it, this tattoo is literally her announcing to the world that she is a lesbian and isn’t going to hide it
This tattoo is her announcing her identity as a queer woman <3

Her tattoos were done after she left the army and both have significance to her not just rebellion. The back would have been her embracing her sexuality and making a point. As Sam said it was used as a way of telling other queer women you were also queer, but it had special significance to the naval corps too.
The tattoo on her arm is a green beret sleeve insignia, which was likely her way as marking herself as a soldier even after losing the uniform. That’s what she is a soldier. :)
