She has three tattoos.

In comics, tattoos aren’t always common with superheroes because they serve as identifying markers. Kate, however, has at least three.

One is a Green Beret insignia on her arm. An exact match to the one her mother had, it’s likely something she got during military training.

Another is a nautical star on her back. Historically, the nautical star is popular amongst members of the U.S. Navy and Marines.

Her third tattoo isn’t associated with her military past. On her shoulder, the bluebird hides a scar she received during the “Zero Year” arc.
