Kelly Goettel

Kelly Goettel

Tattoo artist

Meet Kelly: a natural-born, home-grown, animal-lovin’ Texas artist. As early as 3, Kelly’s mom was keeping her entertained with the simplicity of a pen and a 50¢ notebook from WalMart. Cheap-o notebooks and the soul and determination of an artist, she had all she needed. All throughout her childhood, drawing was a staple. She drew for everyone she knew, and eventually began being commissioned to do so! Ironically enough, Kelly was doing portraits, pet portraits, and even specifically tattoo designs for folks long before the thought of being a tattoo artist had ever crossed her mind. After graduating High school, Kelly got a job working with the only other thing besides art she was truly passionate about; animals! After a 2 year stint in Austin, TX working as a veterinary technician and nourishing her creative side in the most artsy city in TX, Kelly moved back to her hometown of Weatherford. Kelly is so excited to be here with us at Elevated where she’s turning her passion into her purpose and eager to turn her hand drawn creations into your next favorite piece! Her main stylistic interests as an up and coming tattoo artist are Photo Realism, Neo-Traditional, and Traditional.
