Capt.Gordon is the owner and proprietor of Time Bomb Tattoos & Curiosities. Born and raised in Maryland, Capt.Gordon is a seeker with no shortage of creative ideas and positive energy. He has been tattooing since 1992 and piercing since 1995. A truly versatile talent who offers a unique flavor to his all his work. He has received plenty of awards for Cover-Ups, Large Scale Color, Tribal and even a nod for Most Bizarre. When he isn’t at Time Bomb Tattoos & Curiosities Capt.Gordon keeps himself busy with a myriad of other creative projects, including painting, large scale chainsaw carving, ritual theater, fire performance and rawhide tattooing. After going to school for Architecture, life pulled Gordon in a different direction. He got his first professional tattooing gig in Gaithersburg, while captaining a 28 car carrier ferry known as White’s Ferry. When Gordon would show up to the tattoo shop in his captains gear from the ferry, the owner Big Al would call him “Capn’ Staub”, after an encounter with, and a stern talking-to from, Capt.Don Leslie, he decided to own the title Capt.Gordon, and the rest as they say is history. Captain is available on an appointment only basis Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun.

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
