Hi, my name is Krista Kerr. I was born and raised in Greenfield, Ohio. I received my B.A. in Art from Morehead State University in Kentucky in December of 1990. Shortly after graduation I moved to Florida and did what everybody with an Art Degree does...took the first job I could get, (a bank teller).
I got my first tattoo from Bill Hannong at Fort Myers Beach Tattoo in the Spring of 1992. While I was getting my tattoo I kept thinking how much I would love to learn how to do this.
I got my foot in the door by helping out in the front room during Spring Break for three years. In the Spring of 1998 a spot finally opened up and I began my formal apprenticeship under Master Tattooist Bill Hannong. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done, but at the same time, one of the most rewarding. I will always be in Bill's debt for giving me the training that has gotten me where I am today.
So the next time your on Fort Myers Beach, stop in and get a souvenier that will last a lifetime.
