OSRS vs IRL: Old School RuneScape Cape Tattoos

OSRS cape tattoos split-screen, maenmiu logo

I had a mind blown moment when I realized that “cape” is one of the few words that appear in the title of the game, Old School RunesCAPE. No wonder there’s a cape for every skill and some other extra very important capes, like the fire cape, the infernal cape, or the imbued god capes. Other scapers figured out the importance of “cape” in RuneScape long before me, and surely enough they found enough inspiration as to wear their favourite capes right on their skin as tattoos.
