Use your body as a medium to show people who you really are. Our award-winning establishment can provide you with the design you’ve been looking for.

Body Jewelry And Curiosities

We carry a wide variety of body jewelry, from the basics, to the fancy, but our shop isn’t just for body art – we also have a huge assortment of curiosities for those interested in the more peculiar things in life!


We believe that the human body can and should serve as a canvas and that piercings are the perfect way to send a message about who you are.

I was able to get an appointment on short notice and they were very friendly. My tattoo artist was Matt and he was extremely friendly, patient (because I never 100% know what I want, so I change my mind frequently), accommodating, and talented! I have gotten several tattoos from this place and I’ve never been disappointed. The place is clean and their equipment and practices appear to always be evolving and keeping up with the best. Highly recommend them!

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
