PRESCOTT--Kelly Geister loved art growing up, specifically drawing.

"When I was younger, my grade school teachers would take my pens away because I always drew on myself," she said.

The passion comes from her family, she said, as multiple family members were talented artists. It all starts, Kelly said, with her great-grandmother Ethel, who Kelly remembers would draw the favorite animals of each great-grandchild into pieces of peanut butter.

Kelly, meanwhile, fell in love with a particular kind of art.

"I've always been a fan of art on bodies," she said.

That started when she was six-years-old, walking past a tattoo shop, growing up in Prescott and she was hooked.

Now, at age 24, Geister is fulfilling that vision, as last month she opened Geister Ink at 106 Broad St.

"It's gone better than I could've expected," Kelly said. "I haven't experienced any negative feedbacks."
