Idle Hands Tattoo Parlour Tattoo

“After doing research on the best tattoo parlors in New Orleans, I emailed Flex at Idle Hands to talk about setting up an appointment during my time in town. He got back with me promptly & let me know a few details including making a deposit to secure my appointment. Flex set me up with Chloe for my permanent souvenir. She was professional & friendly. She drew up my tattoo & resized it a couple times until it was to my liking. I was very happy with the outcome. Very clean lines. She went over healing instructions & also sent me home with a card which included the instructions. I definitely recommend Idle Hands. The shop is clean. They do accept walk ins, but I suggest making an appointment, if possible. Thank you, Chloe & Idle Hands!“

Hell or High Water Tattoo Tattoo

“Last weekend we visited NOLA for our Bach trip and quite a few of us decided we wanted tattoos! The artist, Wes, was SO accommodating and had the best vibe. There was a large group of us, so we fully expected them to not be able to accommodate all of us, but Wes stayed late to ensure we were all taken care of. The quality of the work is immaculate, and has taken hardly any time to heal! HUGE thanks to Wes for being so amazing and giving us a permanent way to remember this trip!“

Everyone in the shop was super nice, and it's the cleanest tattoo shop I've ever been in! Very laid back atmosphere, and Scott kept us laughing the whole time we were there. Plus, he did an AMAZING job on our tats - incredible detail, and his artistic vision was spot on for what we wanted. We will make a special trip back to NOLA to get our next tats here.

He was super polite and patient, had great suggestions and was easy to work with if we wanted to change something. His demeanor was very calming. I had designed a small, simple piece.

“I went to NOLA for work/fun the beginning of February. As my friends & I are known for getting spontaneous tattoos I can say I’m so incredibly glad we found this shop! We rolled up around midnight to do 5 walk in tattoos & they were so accommodating! Everyone in the shop was so nice & funny, & they were just as hyped about the tattoos as we were! If I ever get the opportunity to go through NOLA again, I will 110% be droppin in! Devin did my tattoos and freaking killed it. The line work is so clean & they’re both so beautiful! I’m so glad I could meet these great artist & spend some fun time in their shop! 10/10 would recommend please stop by if you’re in NOLA it’s definitely worth the trip!“
