If you love traditional style tattoos but are also into portrait tattoos- let Holly Ellis do the work for you!

Holly Ellis is the owner and tattooer of Idle Hands Tattoo, SF, and she specializes in traditional tattoos as well as traditionally-rendered bold, black portraits that are classy and timeless. She can effortlessly fuse traditional and portrait style, which is characterized as bold and long-lasting. It is because these tattoos are supported by strong black outlines and the right amount of shading for it to hold more than a washed-out portrait tattoo normally would.
