Idle Hand Tattoo San Francisco

Idle Hand is a custom tattoo studio located in the Lower Haight since 2004. Owned and operated by Holly Ellis.

With 6 artists there is a wide range of styles to choose from and we offer a clean, fun, yet professional environment for all of our clients.

While the artists in our shop are generally busy with appointments we do welcome walk-ins. If you'd like to make an appointment please contact each artist individually.

There is a minimum deposit of $100 to make an appointment. Deposits vary depending on the artist and the tattoo. Please note, we require a 48-hour cancelation notice for all appointments. Deposit will be forfeited for appointments cancelled with less than 48-hour notice. Appointments made within 48 hours of appointment date will forfeit deposit if cancelled.

We are cash only and do not take credit cards or personal checks.

If you'd like to contact a specific artist you can find their email in their portfolio on this website or call the shop. We look forward to hearing from you!
