How a Rock Star Became a Father and an Autism Activist

Tattoos for a positive cause

Being owners of a tattoo shop “My Religion Tattoo” in Reno, Shannon and Snell came up with the idea to host Ink for Autism - a fundraiser donating a day’s worth of proceeds to the non-profit organization ‘Autism Coalition of Nevada’ (ACON). “We are personally affected by autism. My daughter has autism, but we see a need in the community to be able to help all families affected by autism” said Shannon.

“We are raising money for a great charity. So instead of putting your money in the wind you actually get to walk away with a piece of art that you can carry forever. That money goes directly to help Nevada families” said Snell.
