  • Love everyone who works there - very professional, friendly, and fun. Three tats from Sarah Rice and want more. Love, love, love her work!!!!!!

  • I want to personally thank Brad for his time, his creative energy, and his vision to allow my vision to come to life. I went in to have my piece created and left feeling like a piece of my heart was filled by the experience. This is not my first tattoo nor my last but it is now a place where I will come ever after more. Thanks for the moment in time and see you next year!

  • Gordon is incredibly talented and experienced. He also possesses the understanding behind the meanings of the art and work he performs. I will only trust certain art and body modifications to him. I wish I lived closer, as he'd have much more of my time, money, and support. I've had piercings and am in the process of a full-arm sleeve from Capt Gordon. The new shop is beautiful and conveys a higher sense of the art and artists that work there. I like the new additions of retail and curiosities. You can't go wrong trusting a permanent piece of body art to these fine folks.

  • We have been to Time Bomb multiple times over the past 6-7 years for both tattoos and piercings. LOVE everyone that works there. Tonight, we saw Danni for a Tragus piercing. She was wonderful. Told me just what to expect and didn't sugar coat anything. Super nice and can't wait to go back again!

  • Great place...from the people to the shop. Captain Gordon did an incredible job! The amount of time he dedicated to making sure everything was as I wanted was awesome. Highly recommend!

  • Went here to get my daughters ears pierced for her 9th birthday. Sam the piercer did an amazing job, not just with the actual piercing but with talking to a 9yo and explaining the process. Highly recommend!

  • Great crew and wonderful prices! Highly recommended!

  • Very courteous and professional front desk staff. Miranda is awesome! She made me feel very comfortable and she kept good conversation and laughs going to lighten the mood. She explained every detail and she's great at her work! I pretty much showed her what I wanted and then I trusted her to tweak it to fit the body space I selected. She perfected it! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
