A recent ribbon-cutting at 150 North Crim Avenue in Belington marked the opening of Ashes to Ashes, a tattoo service, under the direction of Abby Suder, a graduate of Philip Barbour High School who attended West Virginia Wesleyan College and graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York with an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies.

Abby said, “I would like to thank everybody who supported me during this journey of opening my own business, especially my parents, Mike and Crystal Suder, and my husband Shay Mitchell.  I couldn’t have done this without any of them.  I am so grateful for all they have done to help me get to this place today.”  She may be reached at (394) 614-3219 or by email:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
