While Ascension Tattoo & Art Studio in downtown Opelika might remain closed amidst state COVID-19 guidelines, owner Amber Kirby is continuing to use her artistic talents to make fabric masks for the community.
Kirby is an active member of the East Alabama Mask Makers Group, but said she wanted to create something more personal for her clients, family, friends and the community at-large.
“(I am making masks with) semi-fashionable patterns and styles so they can feel good wearing them. These masks are also washable and really do go a long way to keep up the moral and overall spirit of our community,” Kirby said.
The cost of these masks is by donation only, Kirby added, in honor of her great-grandmother Neva.
