Impressed! "Brad has incredible talent! Easy going, skilled, and friendly - he put me at ease from the moment I walked in. And my ink....gorgeous!!! The lines are crisp and it looks better than I ever envisioned. He listens well and creates beautifully. (My ink is left shoulder blade with an antique and 3d effect. Everyone, including my most trusted inked friends, are amazed by just how great a job he did.)"

Only place I will go "I had known Capt as a close friend for years before I made an appointment with him to get my first tattoo done. Being new to tattoos - he was amazing in explaining everything to me and working with me. The biggest thing for me is my fear of needles, but that didn't deter Capt from doing my tattoo. I am so greatful that I went to him because he was very understanding and compassionate. Not only was it a complete joy to work with him, but also all the staff at time bomb tattoo. Everyone is so professional, friendly, and most importantly hygienic. In the end, you can see all the passion and dedication that all the staff there put into their work. I always recommend time bomb tattoo in a heartbeat whenever someone is looking for an artist. I wont let anyone else tattoo me."

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."
