About Time Bomb

5 yellow

We pride ourselves in creating custom artwork to last a lifetime, and beyond.

Each one of our artists is incredibly talented and committed to coming up with the perfect design every time. We want to make sure that every tattoo that we do will make our customers happy forever, not just for the first few days. So all of our consultation and planning time is free and we make certain to get it right!

We delight in the details…

…from placement perfection, to meticulous set up, all the way through reviewing care instructions for your new art. Our process is clean, fun, friendly, and tailored to your needs.

While we do specialize in modifying and beautifying the body, our artists are gifted in many mediums.

We encourage all custom and commission requests; the skin is not the limit!

We also carry a wide variety of body jewelry, from the basics, to the fancy, to the custom BVLA, Anatometal, and Neometal pieces. In addition, you will find all sorts of unique adornments, rogue taxidermy, antiques, and memorabilia to pique your curiosities!


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.


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


Our shop isn’t just for body art – we also have a huge assortment of fun curiosities!

From historical artifacts to antique art pieces to unique taxidermy… we have something fascinating for just about anyone interested in the more peculiar things in life!

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
