Excellent customer service, both in person and via email. Clean and welcoming environment. I was glad I could get my tattoo in the back room as I would have been uncomfortable in the front of the shop with an audience of waiting customers and casual visitors to the shop. Colin was courteous, professional, efficient, and precise in his work. He gave clear directions about the process as well as after care instructions. If you are interested in a tattoo, you can feel confident that you will get exactly what you want if you come to Time Bomb!

Had a wonderful experience here for my piercing with Capt Gordon. He was kind and had great conversations about travel. Definitely eased my nerves. The shop itself is impeccably clean and lots of neat trinkets to browse. Reasonably priced, great customer service, great experience

The piercer was professional and courteous. He listened to my concerns and preference in placement of the jewelry. The office was clean and sterilized. Very interesting aesthetic. I'll definitely return for my next tattoo or piercing!

I cannot recommend this place enough! Super clean, super friendly, and just such an unique place. Every staff member is passionate about tattoos and body modification. The staff here take your safety and comfort seriously, which makes the experience so much smoother. Each artist has a personal style they excel at, but they are all incredibly talented. The lobby, a.k.a. their curiosities shop, is full of neat stuff, too!

Everyone was extremely genuine. Parrish was super kind and funny. The employees who greeted me and signed me in were very nice and helpful and helped me feel relaxed for my tattoo. Parrish did an amazing job and I’m really happy I decided to get my first tattoo here. I also got my second helix and forward helix pierced. Jasper was so nice and he helped me feel more relaxed for my piercing. He was super chill and I love the results of my piercings. I will definitely be coming back to get more tattoos and piercings. I recommend this place for everyone especially to the people who are tattoo/piercing beginners!

Makoto did my first (and only) tattoo. I was so nervous and they put me ease. I appreciated the way we collaborated together to make my vision into reality and how they added their professional advice along the way. The place is super clean and professional with computer equipment that made my design exactly how I wanted it. Makoto was very clear in the aftercare instructions. Everything is super sanitized there and the environment is relaxed and not pretentious. Makoto also was very reasonable in their pricing. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! It's important to me that I can connect with the person who leaves permanent artwork on my body. I'm extremely happy with my art piece. I highly recommend them!!!!

Beyond excellent. Came in for an industrial piercing we're able to give me options for it as I'm allergic to nickel. 10 out of 10 recommend it Jasper was amazing.

Got my nostril pierced two weeks ago and it was a great experience. Place was very clean and Capt. Gordon was very professional. There were so many options for jewelry and the girl at the front was super helpful and friendly. Piercing itself was quick and surprisingly not painful at all! Love it!

Took my almost 13 year old daughter in to get her ears pierced a second time today. Terrific experience and Christie was the bomb! Super sweet and really helped my daughter relax. Cannot recommend enough! We will be back for sure!
