Sasha Leithead's octopus-themed design was the winner of our youth mask design contest. This is Sasha's explanation of her design, as submitted to our contest.

"My design features an octopus in a loose reference to a Chinese traditional tattoo style. When I’m doing pen and ink an octopus seems to be my default, I love the intricacy and flow of them. I have always loved doing art, but only in the last 3 years have I begun to take it more seriously. In the future, I aspire to become a writer and illustrate my own books.”

Single mask $15 including taxes. Sahsa's mask is also available as one of 4 masks in our Tattoo Art Mask Set. (One of each mask design for $50.)
