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.
