This shops was so cool and very welcoming. Daron James is a great artist, owns the shop, and has so much experience that he makes the piercing process smooth, safe and honestly kinda fun. He’s a good guy with a great attitude and an even better piercing shop. This place is great!

Extremely happy with my experience at Diamond Thieves. Jarret walked me through the entire design and allowed me to tweak the original drawing several times to get it where I wanted it. He made the tattoo look even better completed then the drawing. High recommend the shop and most importantly Jarret. Will be back.

I have received numerous piercings and tattoos from this place (nostril, lip, septum and 2 large tattoos) and I have had a good experience everytime. They do a great job and I leave very happy each time. I definitely recommend this place.

Have been here several times and will continue to come to this shop. Staff is professional, the shop is really clean, you can tell they take pride in what they do. I have gotten tattoos from a couple artists that have worked here, have had piercings done here, as well as a couple of my children. Will go back in the future. Definitely recommend going here.

I’ve been here twice to pierce ears for my kiddos. Each time, they were so kind and patient with my kids freaking out about getting a piercing. To be clear, they wanted the piercing, but hard when faced with potential pain when you’re a kid 😉 I appreciated how they talked through each step and paused patiently until they were ready. It is walk-in appointments only and be ready to bring a birth certificate if you’re bringing a minor. Most recently, we walked in and it was going to be an hour wait (it was a Sunday). One of workers said if we came back the next day, she would give us a $10 off coupon, so we totally did. Thank you Diamond Thieves!

I have gotten three tattoos from Jeremy in 2023 so far. His work and attention to detail is impeccable and I appreciate his honesty and knowledge. DT as a whole is a great experience. This is my go-to place for any and all tattoos and piercings forever!

Emily Perkins

Everyone was very friendly and professional.They gave me great advice on what kind of piercings and jewelry to pick out. They gave me advice on some problem areas and how to take care of those problems. I am very happy with my piercings and my great experience at Diamond Thieves. I highly recommend those guys

Amazing tattoo and piercing shop! I’m planning my tattoo there currently and can’t wait to get started on it! I have been pierced there multiple times and have had other people whom I recommended it to also get pierced there! The staff is very friendly and easy to talk to and get along with and the shop is very cozy and clean as well as having a very large selection of jewelry in every price range. I highly recommend!

This is the first place I’ve been too, to get pierced and I love them. They’re super friendly and helpful and the piercers I’ve met have done a really good and fast job and when I went back because I messed up the piercing they were understanding and helpful on what I should and shouldn’t do. Honestly 10/10 place and I’ll definitely be back for more piercings or tattoos.

I have went to Diamond Thieves many times over the last 8 years. They have never disappointed. They are so knowledgable and helpful. I would trust the employees with my life. They have a very clean shop. I wish I could give them 100 stars! I will continue to drive an hour out of my way to visit them. Did I mention I am planning my next trip?

Beth Searcy

I absolutely love Diamond Thieves! They are an amazing place and I refuse to get pierced anywhere else. The owner is absolutely amazing and has changed out my surgical steel for titanium for free as well as covering half the cost of a replacement earring that he did not have to do! They strive to make sure their customers love their jewelry and I had an amazing experience when I got my first tattoo here as well! If you need a tattoo or piercing I HIGHLY recommend them! Amazing atmosphere and the kindest people I have ever met.

Aubrey Hollifield

Walked in about an hour before closing for a septum piercing. There was about 4-5 customers ahead of me and the wait was only about 20 minutes!! I don’t remember the piercers name but they did an absolutely awesome job. Super fast, painless, and incredibly kind. Id definitely recommend!!!!

Christal Fisher

Awesome place! I’ve gotten 4 piercings here so far and I’m really impressed. Daron is awesome! Even when I’m super nervous he makes the whole process really fun and easy. Also they have a great jewelry selection. Highly recommend and I’m planning to get more piercings here!

Max McMahan

I have used Diamond Thieves three times and had an amazing experience every time. The first time I went in for piercings and was seen immediately. They talked me through the options and made me feel extremely comfortable during the process. Everything was extremely clean and professional. The other two times I have been were for two larger tattoos on the back both done by Jeremy Askew. He is extremely nice and very professional. He is also one of the cleanest and most OCD on prep and placement I have encountered. On top of that he does amazing work! Can’t wait to book my next session to start finishing up the back. I highly recommend diamond thieves to anyone for a piercing or tattoo!!!

Sydnee Wood

The front of house employee assisted me in decided what piercing jewelry I should get. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. They had a lot of options for jewelry, which was high quality. The piercer was friendly and easily able to change out my pieces. I highly recommend them and I will likely be going there for my next piercing. Also there is ample parking available.

Megan Alissa

Best place in Asheville to have piercings and tattoos done at reasonable rates. The employees up front will do good for you, and they will try to get you wet you want, though will use caution for a good reason, all to keep your piercings and tattoos from turning out bad. So if they recommend something take their advice.

My daughter had been asking for her nose pierced and during our visit to Asheville, we decided to surprise her with one. We were so glad we chose Diamond Thieves. The whole experience was painless and just had the nicest staff (and owner).
