Here's A Closeup Of Jack's Tattoo Of Katie's Face From 'Below Deck'

Below Deck has given us a lot over the years. Drug smuggling. Pregnancy scandals. Nacho disasters. And now, with the return of Below Deck Med, Season 6, we have ourselves a tattoo situation. Former deckhand Jack Stirrup has current chief stew Katie Flood's face tattooed on his arm, which, tbh is a little confusing. For a lot of reasons.

First of all, Jack was on Season 4 of Below Deck Med, and at the time, was single (according to him) and courted and started dating second stew Aesha Scott. Their relationship was quite cute on-screen, until it wasn't during the reunion. After they left Sirocco, Jack went back to the UK and reunited with his ex-girlfriend Kelly Hidge, according to Bravo. It came as a surprise to Aesha.

Jack and Kelly welcomed a baby son, Phoenix Sydney Stirrup, on April 15, 2020. Aesha is dating extreme sporter/ non-Below Decker Scotty Dobbo. Jack and Aesha made peace with a phone call, but aren't still in touch. How all of this relates to Katie on Season 6, well, we have to go way back.

Before Jack met Aesha on the show, and before he met Kelly, he was with Katie. They shared a "deep love," Katie says, hence, face-on-arm tattoo. Jack says he was super fucked up in Thailand when he did it (he didn't just want to get a "cook K" tattooed on his ass? That's a Vanderpump joke for you guys) and Katie says he got the 10 days after meeting her.
