Very High Quality and Trustworthy Artists
"I have been thinking about getting inked with a specific design, which I think captures the essence of the person I strive to be, for several decades. In the end, I could not bring myself to trust someone I didn't know to execute his or her vision of the design on my old hide, permanently. Then a band mate and car buddy referred me to Capt. Gordon at Time Bomb. I saw examples of his work, checked out the shop's reputation, and decided to give these guys a chance. After two sessions and almost done with healing, I can recommend Gordon and the entire staff at Time Bomb without hesitation, or reservation. The piece was a bit unusual, with an old fashioned aesthetic one doesn't typically see in tattoos, but Gordon "got it" immediately. He listened carefully to my rather unfocused description of what I was trying to evoke, and meticulously hand-drew the design from the example I gave him, taking the time it took to get it right. When it came to the needles and ink, I couldn't help but notice how clean, careful and professional Gordon was. He concentrated deeply as he worked in both sessions, but took the time to answer all my stupid questions and laugh at my lame jokes. But the way he envisioned and executed all the small and intricate design and color details was the high point of the experience. Lines and shading and colors that looked almost random to me in the order in which he applied them all came together at the end to produce a striking work of living art. Gordon charges for his long experience and talent, but if you want a unique piece reflecting serious craftsmanship and creative artistry that will endure a lifetime, he's the man. The whole shop seems to steer by the high standards he sets. Highly recommended. In both sessions, I watched as other artists worked on other customers. I was quite impressed with their skills, professionalism, and communicative, friendly manner, as well."

"I've known Gordon for years; and I can say without reservation that the art he has left upon me is a true expression of the soul - both his and mine. It was an inspirational moment when Gordon - with an initial first idea of my own - sat down with me at the light board and showed me a masterpiece. What now rests in ink on my outside truly captures the picture that lives inside me. The rest of the Time Bomb crew is an eclectic mix of talented artisans; and amazing individuals. At each sitting, they all made me feel - in some way - like a member of the family. From the second I walked in the door, the human warmth was palpable. These are good people - talented, real and a joy to be around. If you seek a beautiful tattoo or piercing, and you want to experience a once in a lifetime experience, give Danny a call and make an appointment to speak with one of the artists. Or drop by the shop for a chat - you will not be disappointed."
