What Clients Say

I went to Runic because several people I know gave me glowing reviews for them. And, I must say,I was not dissapointed! I got a tattoo in my mom"s memory by Robzila and he did a great job. He was very kind to me, paid attention to what I wanted, and made sure I was 100% ready before he started  tattooing me. He talked to me and my fianceeand semed to know when the pain was getting to be a bit much and would back off for a second without being asked.
