Samson Akers

Samson Akers was born in Lemon, South Dakota, and was raised in Rapid City, South Dakota. I am a convicted felon. I have changed my life around and beat some crazy odds in my recovery. With that being said, I want to encourage other felons who have changed their lives around. Being a productive member in our society, I will offer a forever special, and I will give 20% off any tattoo. There is a catch, to qualify for the discount. You must show proof of completion of after care, treatment, parole, or probation. I would like to recognize those have changed their lives.
