Origins - ISLA

Isla has been drawing since before she can remember. At age14, she decided her dream was to become a tattoo artist. With this goal in mind, she refined her drawing skills by attending over 5 years of art school. With a degree in illustration under her belt, she began searching for the perfect studio to teach her how to tattoo. She reached out to FBI, and beforeshe knew it, she was well on her way to achieving her goalas an apprentice. The rest is history. Isla today is a highly skilled licensed tattoo artist who specialises in illustrative black work, creating mostly floral images out of fine line and lots of detail.

I found my new tattoo shop!! Isla was incredible to work with and she took a lot of care and thought into my tattoo! The whole process from booking to aftercare/touch up was flawless. The shop is super clean and even has netflix! The team was incredibly responsive prior to getting my tattoo done and answered all of the questions I had. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

A.F. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I just can say thank you to Isla for being such an incredible tattoo artist and for turning my idea in such an incredible tattoo that will be with me forever. Since the second I went to the studio until I left she made me feel so comfortable. We had a nice chat while she was tattooing me. I highly recommend her- she won’t disappoint you. I can’t wait to be back! Thank you, thank you and thank you Isla.

Roksana O - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Getting my first tattoo was exciting but I was also nervous at first. Thanks to Isla, I had the most amazing experience. She helped me with the sizing and placement of my tattoo to ensure I was 100% satisfied with it. She also provided support in case I needed breaks and gave me advice about the aftercare of my tattoo which was very useful considering it was my first tattoo. At the end, I was left with a beautiful tattoo which I absolutely love. My expectations were exceeded and I would definitely come back to FBI tattoo, thank you Isla!

Kiah E - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Actually amazing tattoos, and the chilliest vibes ever. Highly recommend getting a tattoo from these guys, they are pros!! And I want to give a massive shout out to my artist Isla, amazing job and a genuine lovely and funny person. I’ve had 2 tattoos done by her now and each time I’ve felt comfortable and left with a massive smile on my face. They accommodated my busy hectic schedule to fit me in. I can not express how much I honestly love travelling up there for a tattoo session. 100% worth the trip and 100% worth every penny you pay.

Isla was amazing! So happy with my delicate lined tattoo. It’s healed perfectly. Will be going back for my next one. Thank you Isla and FBI

Roxx White - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
As soon as I walked into the shop all I could smell was disinfectant and everywhere was super clean. I was greeted by Isla who also done my tattoo. It was by far the best tattoo experience I've had. I'll definitely be having all future tattoos done here. Isla was lovely, professional and helped calm me down as I was a little nervous. She helped me make some decisions about size, font and placement as I wasn't too sure and made sure I was happy with it. I'm super happy with my tattoo and I can't wait to go back and get more. The price was good. There's not a bad word I can say about my experience here. If you're looking for a tattoo artist then look no further, try these out and you definitely won't be disappointed!

Joe Borg - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I got the most incredible tattoo from Isla, who also helped me with its overall design. Not only did she sketch a design that was exactly what I was looking for but she was incredibly attentive and professional in her work. After I explained that I wasn't great with needles, she made sure to make me feel comfortable throughout. It was a breeze. I'm so happy with my tattoo and would recommend both FBI Tattoo London and Isla to anyone. Thanks again!

Isla did the most beautiful, intricate and detailed tattoos for me and my friend today. Not only was her art incredible, but she was really respectful and kind... Something I think is really important with tattoos. Incredible service and beautiful art. Looking forward to the next piece of artwork she does for me. 10/10

Beautiful tattoo done by Isla. Lines were clean and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Isla was very easy to communicate with and the design came out perfect.

ISLA's PRICES

BASIC PRINCIPLE: Most of the time you will have an INDIVIDUAL PRICE for your tattoo, considering the details, and the rough time we need for a quality execution. If your artist decides to take more time for a better tattoo, you still only pay the agreed price.

Here is a little (rough) example about proportion of sizes and prices:
 

Tattoo Size

Inch

Cm

ROUGH Price with ISLA

XS – Tiny Tattoos

1”x1”

2,5x2,5

£60-£90

S – Small Tattoos

2"x2"

5x5

£90-£150

M – Medium Tattoos

4”x4”

10x10

£150 – £300

L – Large Tattoos

6"x6"

15x15

£350 – £550

XL+ – Extra Large Tattoos

8"x8"

20x20

£700 +

BASIC PRICE: £60 - This is the smallest price we work for.

HOURLY RATE: Sorry guys, but here at FBI Tattoo London, we are not very keen on charging by hours. However for easier understanding if we had an hourly rate, we could call it £100. The reason for our decision is simple. We all have heard horrible stories of some "tattoo artists" who extended a 3,5 hour job and have been working on it for 7-8 hours on a piece, just to get some more money out of the customers. Simply disgraceful.
We always will be VERY CLEAR on size, design, and give you an individual price for each session. Period. Timing is going to be estimated, but as you pay a fixed price, there is no need to stare the clock in fear, because the "next 60 minutes has started and you are up for an other £100 or £150 to pay". So pay when we start, sit in, enjoy, and we will do our very best to meet your expectations :)

HALF DAY session: £350 - This is roughly four hours (give, or take a little), the discount to an "hourly rate" is around £50. This session comes with a free aftercare cream.

FULL DAY session: £650 - This is roughly eight hours (give, or take a little), the discount to an "hourly rate" is around £150. This session comes with a free aftercare cream.

BUDGET piece: You give us how much you feel comfortable to spend on Your tattoo, (within reason obviously :D) and we design something for You.

MULTIPLIERS: Some body parts are much more difficult to tattoo than others. If you wish to get a tattoo there, we will charge you more than on a usual place.
Examples:
Palm, Hand, Fingers, Neck, Collarbone: Normal price X 1.5
Throat, Head, Face: Normal price X 2

TOUCH-UP:
Regardless of taking the BEST care of your tattoo, you still may lose some ink, sometimes it just happens, without any specific reason. We are happy to give you a FREE touch-up within the first 8 weeks, although please be advised that for places like PALMS, HANDS or FINGERS, we will charge you for the touch-up too.

DEPOSIT: Please be advised that NONE of the deposits paid in are refundable!

REFUND: Please be advised that as a usual policy in the tattoo industry, there is NO REFUND of any sort whatsoever!
