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
