I, Kelly Jackson have been tattooing since 1992. My apprenticeship began at the tender age of 21, in a small college town in Illinois. Tattoo Blue was the shop that I began my tattooing career. The shop's owner, Devin Murfin, brought me into the industry and showed me the basics. A demanding need to excel and a lot of hard work brought me to the Ft. Myers Beach Tattoo Studio. Master Tattooist Bill Hannong took a rough, young, headstrong kid and refined me to the exceptionally talented tattooer that I am now. Working with the artists of FMBT and my own unwavering desire to create, has molded me into the tattooer that I have become.
My 6 year old son, Maxwell and I live in Bonita Springs. We have lived in Florida since 2003. And, we love it! We have no reason to leave the area or the shop.
Ft. Myers Beach Tattoo is a studio that you can trust in a long term relationship, with the tattooist of your choice. That means consistency and great professional work from artists you can rely on, time and time again.
