I visited Color Theory for the first time today with my best friend (who has previously been here to get tattoos—she recommended the spot!) to get nose piercings together. Austin was our piercer and he was wonderful! Since this was my first facial piercing, I was a little nervous and I didn’t know what to expect. Austin was really friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and put me at ease. I really appreciated the way he talked me through each step and explained what to expect. Thanks for the care and patience, Austin!

Brought our 13 year old daughter to get her cartilage pierced, she was really nervous about it— Austin pierced her ear and really made her feel calm and walked us through the whole process— really great guy, highly recommend him!

A few years ago I got an industrial piercing done but the place I went to did it wrong and it had to be removed. I decided to finally get it put back in. I got tattoo's from Color Theory and they are amazing and the people are awesome there. I decided to go to Color Theory for my piercing. I met Austin there who does piercings. He is awesome, he is very helpful. He cared about the jewelry I needed for my industrial and recommended a longer bar to help make room for swelling instead of just piercing with a small length bar. He explained everything during the piercing procedure and made it go so smoothly, so easy and very little pain. He is quick but accurate. Great customer service and great on making the customer know what is going on so they are aware. After the piercing he makes sure the customer know the best care for the piercing and explains the best way to make sure it heals properly. I highly recommend Color Theory for tattoo's and highly recommended Austin if you need a piercing. The place and people are beyond awesome! Definitely will be going back for any tattoo's or piercings.

austin was fabulous! he was very professional and friendly — he apologized once for overexplaining what he was doing, which was not a problem at all, because i’d much rather know what was going on during a piercing than not. i really appreciated how thorough he was. i left with a beautiful new helix and conch piercing and i will be coming back once those are healed.

Today is a very special day and marks 2 years someone special passed. We wanted memorial tattoos, however no artists had an appointment time for us early enough to come and be to work on time. Mike and Will opened early and Will designer something even better then we imagined. We are 100% in love with the tattoos and their service and skills were superior. Thank you Mike and Will!!!

Had my sleeve done with Cass Tino and couldn't be happier. She took the time to work with me on my sleeve idea and turn it into a viable tattoo. She's thorough, detail-oriented and a talented tattoo artist to boot. I get compliments constantly on the line work, the colors and the concept. Most of all she made sure I'd love my tattoo every step of the way. The tattoo shop itself is clean and everyone working there was friendly. Highly recommend!!!!

Brittany was beyond wonderful to work with! She took the time to do a consult with me, work with me on artwork I created and brought in, offered different sizing on the day of and didn’t rush or pressure me in any of the process. A wide range of styles and a great conversationalist! Didn’t need to bring anyone with me because talking with her and the client/artist duo next to us kept me occupied throughout the session. Studio was clean and helpful when you walk in. Parking is limited so plan accordingly! ATM on site as well. Place runs chilly too which I appreciated!

Will is absolutely amazing. He is extremely professional and responsive. He took the time to research the tattoo my husband and I wanted, and he presented a handful of options from which to pick. Not to mention, he’s an amazing artist. For my tattoo, I wanted it to be as delicate as possible, and Will delivered. I CANNOT recommend him enough.

I have got two tattoos and piercings from this place and I have to say, absolutely worth going here. The quality for the price is reasonable, I felt safe and welcomed, and it was relatively painless all things considered. If you are a minority looking for a safe place, go here. Also please go to king will he’s the goat

Alex pierced my nose, and it was the best piercing experience I’ve ever had (this one makes 15)! He has a great sense of humor and even swapped out my bridge just because!! 12/10 would recommend, and will be coming back for any future piercings! :)(Pictured with a friend who got their bridge pierced by Alex as well)

My husband and I have gotten a lot of tattoos from Will Coy. Will is absolutely incredible and a well rounded artist who can do various types of tattoo styles. I have also seen the work of the other artists in the shop. They are all polite, laid back and friendly a group of people. The Color Theory shop is always very clean, there are TVs at every chair. I have also gotten piercings from two of the piercers at their shop and got a jewelry swap. Both of them were super informative, glad to help with positioning of the piercing adjustment of the ring size. For first timers, they provide instructions on aftercare for all services.

Decided to finally get my septum pierced, and was so nervous! I did a ton of research and landed on Color Theory based off the great reviews and good experience my sister had getting her tattoo there. Alex is the best!! I had an absolutely fantastic experience! They made me feel completely at ease and walked me through the entire process. It hurt, but not as much as I thought it would. In love with it so much!! Healing also went fantastic and I'm headed back in soon to change it out for another look. Thank you Color Theory!💜💜

My sister and I have wanted piercings for a while and a friend recommended this place- it was amazing! Alex was our piercer and they were very professional and clearly experienced. At the first sign of faintness (I'm not great with blood) they instantly had cold water, a fan, and patience. They were super careful to stay clean, announcing every glove change, and took extra care to wipe away blood before I saw it. Highly highly recommend Color Theory.

First piercing EVER! It was not as bad as I thought. Yeah it hurt but Austin made the entire experience calming. He was obviously super respectful to me and my body. He always asked how I was and let me guide the way. I would highly recommend to anyone! Going back again!

I have gotten 6 tattoos from Color Theory, I will never go anywhere else for a tattoo. They are such talented artists, great people, the shop is extremely comfortable to be at, and it’s extremely clean and safe. I’m a Type 1 Diabetic, so I have an increased chance for infection/things take longer to heal. I have never had any problems with how my tattoos heal and look after. I will always very confidently recommend them to friends, I love this shop and can’t wait to get back in for my next one.

Ci did my tattoo this week and I love it! I had a great experience from start to finish there. Came in for a consult, paid my deposit and scheduled my appointment for about three weeks later. Super happy with the sketch that Ci did for me, placement was perfect and his work is great. Shop is super clean (people were dusting all the artwork and cleaning all the bar stools while I was in there), they have a totally killer movie selection and everyone I interacted with, including the other clients were friendly. Ci is great to talk with, super cool guy and the conversation flowed easily. I’ll be back for my next one for sure and would absolutely recommend them.I see some comments on here about prices being high. I think you get what you pay for and tattoos aren’t something I bargain buy. These people are artists in an industry where time is money and overhead costs to provide clean safe tattoos exist. I discussed rates up front at my consult and there were no surprises. To me the value is there and worth the money you pay.
