“I absolutely love Red Letter and it’s staff. They’re courteous, professional, very open to discussion when it comes to placement and designs, and excellent in their attention to your needs. I’ve had two piercings (septum and conch orbital) and a tattoo done so far, and all went off clean and beautiful. The artist that did up the tattoo was the same that pierced my septum, and she was so sweet as we talked both times, as was the piercer that got my ear. For as long as I’m in Loveland, they’ve got a frequent and very happy customer.”

– Aaron Fitzpatrick

“This business is amazing! My daughter came to Mike for her first tattoo and he designed it and it’s absolutely beautiful. He made her feel comfortable and everyone that works here is so helpful.

“I was a first time customer, seeking to get a personal tattoo for an early birthday present. I had researched several shops around Loveland and Fort Collins, but something about Red Letter drew me in. I walked in and was greeted by Mike, who made me feel very comfortable about the process. He talked me through my tattoo, and it came out fantastic. I look forward to more in the future!”

His work was above and beyond anything I expected. By far best shop in the area.”
