I cant say enough good things about this place. Staff always treats there customers with courtesy and kindness. Always willing to work you in there schedule and give you the exact tattoo you want. I had tattoos from three different people and all of them came out awesome. Ruben, Freddie, and Brandon are all awesome artists and I feel more than comfortable letting them put art on my body. Mad props to Brandon though, super cool dude and great artist. Enjoy his tattooing and also his company while im there. I recommend anyone thinking about a tattoo to go there first, you will not regret it. I will be a customer for life at this place and I am so happy I went there.

Great place! Everyone is so nice there, and very professional shop. Brandon threw down on my piece it’s amazing and everything I wanted. Took my few vague ideas and made it into something beautiful and what I was hoping for. The shop is clean, and very welcoming. I really can’t say enough wonderful things about this shop, they also had movies on with a tv at every station, wow amazing distraction while your getting your art. Highly recommended!

**UPDATED 7/16/21**I got a tattoo with James West last week and it's the most beautiful thing I've ever gotten. I knew generally what I wanted but had no idea on specifics. He took so much time helping me make decisions, and the final result is glorious. I will never go to another place for a tattoo again period.WHETHER YOU'RE GETTING YOUR FIRST TATTOO OR YOUR 10TH TATTOO GO TO COLOR THEORY!!--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I got a tattoo with Ci yesterday and he was awesome!! Super professional and so nice to talk to. This is my second tattoo from Color Theory - I can't remember who did my first one, but he was great too. Both times the artists took a LOT of time to make sure the placement was perfect. I appreciate that they treat customers getting small pieces with the same care and precision as customers getting large, expensive pieces. 10/10 would recommend coming here (and seeing Ci)!!

Was recommended this shop after my old artist moved away. Will Alexander promised me a great revamp of my sleeves and so far he's come through making Zeus reborn and more badass than ever. Also they have great movies playing non-stop. Can't wait for the rest of our sessions. Very clean, takes great care. Great experience.

I got my cartilage pierced by Austin a couple months ago. The shop is awesome, everyone is super friendly, and Austin was an amazing piercer. He provided a few different options of placement to make sure I was getting pierced exactly where I wanted. He walked me through each step of the process and made sure everything was very clean and ready to go. Will definitely be back!

Went in for some new ear piercings and Alex took really good care of me! He is super professional and personable! He makes you feel very comfortable throughout the whole entire process. I have stretched ears and wanted a second lobe piercing. He was very knowledgeable with placement and what looked best! I highly recommend coming to this shop and getting pierced by Alex. I had a great experience. He’s the best!

After searching many tattoo parlors trying to decide where to go, I landed on Color Theory, not just because it’s close to my house but I saw good reviews online and also had a friend recommend it. Tattoo is gonna be so beautiful and meaningful but they are also very expensive so you want to make sure you’re getting your moneys worth and the pricing is reasonable. I wanted a portrait of my dog for like five years now and I finally saved up enough money to do it. My tattoo was done by Will Coy and I seriously could not be happier. I gave him a picture of my dog and my tattoo looks EXACTLY like the picture. I cried a little when I saw the finished product. The price was about what I expected and fair. It’s a fun atmosphere and I will definitely be going back to Will for the rest!!! Thank you guys so much for helping me achieve a dream I’ve had in mind for a long time! I would love to add a picture of it but I don’t see an option to do that for some reason....?

I worked with the new piercer, Alex. He was incredibly professional and easy going. Talked me through both piercings and they went great. Alex even helped me with placement to help with cartilage damage from childhood. I will definitely go back and highly recommend going to Alex for piercings!

Overall this shop has an amazing atmosphere. I just recently went in to get my lobes pierced. Got them done by Alex Pokes. He’s very outgoing, funny, and professional. He knew what he was doing and was very informative throughout the process. Looking for a piercing?? Make sure to hit Color Theory!!!

Jimmy at Color Theory Tattoo is one of the best. He is friendly and professional, with great artistic talent. Choosing to work with him and his studio was the right decision.I had to find a new artist and shop when my previous artist became unavailable. After reading many reviews online I kept seeing positive experiences with Color Theory and all who work there. I ended up visiting the studio and found it to be clean and beautifully designed. I set an appointment with Jimmy that same day I visited. During my appointment it was easy to see how sanitary the shop and their practices are, including all necessary COVID-19 precautions. For these reasons, and the fact that working with Jimmy was very comfortable, made for a positive experience. Jimmy's work was perfect. I was so happy with everything that I made another appointment right away. Two tattoos in two months with Jimmy at Color Theory and I know I found my new shop. Nice place to get yourself inked — can't wait to go back for more work!

Jerry is such an amazing artist, and I highly recommend looking into him if you're looking for new body art. My brain and inspiration pics can be a bit all over the place, but he was able to take what I was looking for and create a gorgeous tattoo that I am absolutely thrilled with! This is my second piece done by him, and I'll definitely be back!

It's a really great space. Art by the tattoo artists is all over the place and it's all so cool. The artists are really nice and make really great art. This is definitely a great place to go to get a tattoo. I went with my friend who was getting a tattoo, and now I plan to get my next tattoo here. Also tattoo places already have to be sanitary, so during this time of COVID, they're doing a great job and I felt very safe.
