Runic Body Art was founded in 2008 based on the vision to change how customers experience getting their new tattoos and body piercings. It seemed that everywhere you went, the prices were sky high and customer service was very much lacking. We felt that we could provide a much more comfortable and welcoming experience that was also clean, professional and creative.
We started Runic on litteraly $568 and a dream. Since then we have grown to be one of the premier shops in Northern Colorado. We are currently one of highest customer reviewed shops in Fort Collins and were just voted Best Tattoo and Piercing Shop of CSU 2012. Please come in and see our beautiful 2000 sq.ft. shop, meet our artists, look at our art, and see the difference for yourself."

What Clients Say

I took my 3 daughters (7, 5 and 3) to have their ears pierced and it couldn't have been a better experience. We may not be the typical customer, but everyone was very nice to us. Jason was very patient with my girls, answering their many nervous questions. The shop is very clean, organized and appeared well run. The employees seem to enjoy their jobs and all that we met were very friendly. I would highly recommend this shop
