The Microblading LA Training Course is a 4-day intensive designed to introduce you to the world of microblading so that you may become a working microblading artist. This comprehensive class, taught by working Microblading LA artists, will teach you all aspects of microblading, from profiling clients to drawing eyebrows to consent forms. You will leave this class confident and eager to practice and master your craft.
Microblading with live models under the supervision of the Microblading LA team.
No prior experience or license required.
You will work side-by-side with Julie Ha, Lindsey Ta, and her team of working microblading artists. This is an experience like no other! You will spend 4 days in our studio, where real clients come into work with our busy team. You'll start with synthetic skin to practice, eventually working with a live model on Day 4 under the supervision of the MLA team of certified instructors and working artists.
This is an entry-level microblading class, perfect for newcomers to the industry or seasoned cosmetology professionals looking to expand their services. Beginners with no prior knowledge of tattooing, eyebrow drawing or cosmetology will appreciate our step-by-step approach to teaching you. You will learn a lot--understand that microblading is one of the most difficult permanent makeup techniques to master, but you'll be learning from the best. Nail technicians, tattoo artists, and artists in any profession that requires a steady hand will find themselves right at home.
Training with Lindsey Ta of Microblading LA allowed me to “up my game”. After 1.5 years of Microblading Eyebrows, I felt like I needed an extra push to take me to the next level. I think it’s good to re-evaluate your techniques after you have some experience. Lindsey has developed her own system that is more structured than they way I was taught. It’s almost foolproof, but artistic skills are still required. I would recommend Microblading LA for not just the beginner, but also the experienced Microblading Artist to further their career.
You and Julie are so sweet and I am so glad I chose you for my training.
Lindsey is a wonderful teacher. So patient, and eager for you to learn. Absorb every minute.
Lindsey truly knows the art of brows and you want to learn from someone as patient as her. There are no secrets with her as she shares her techniques and even provides a list of favorite products. Glad to see training is 4 consecutive days now as you will gain a lot from that. Enjoy every second.
Lindsey Ta is the founder of Microblading LA, a world champion microblading artist, and an advocate for microblading around the world. In January 2016, she won 1st place at The World of Microblading Championship against some of the best artists in the world. Her work is seen by hundreds of thousands visitors every month to her popular Facebook and Instagram pages, and has been featured in Bravo TV, Pop Sugar, and more. Microblading is her passion and she believes in setting her students on track to blossom as their own unique artist. She has individually trained all MLA instructors.

Yes, but not to us. To practice microblading in Los Angeles (and in our class) you'll have to complete Bloodeborne Pathogens test prior to arrival which costs $39.95 payable to the testing company. You'll also need to register with LA County, which costs $47 payable to LA County.
Yes. Microblading is a technique for a natural, hairstroke eyebrow tattoo, completed with a manual pen, not a tattoo machine. The pen is called a microblade. If you want to learn to create an eyebrow tattoo that resembles a powdered brow, we recommend our Microblading + Shading Combo Class, which features both microblading and the powdered brow technique.
An advanced course is in the works! If you're interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know! We welcome all feedback as we work behind the scenes to develop an amazing new course for artists who understand the fundamentals or who have already completed our Art of Microblading course. We also periodically offer advanced courses from guest teachers like Rusen Donmez and Rebecca Chung and more to come. Join our email list to be notified when we offer new classes!
Yes. There are 4 hotels within 1 mile of the studio. You can view them here on Yelp. We also can recommend some good places to eat too. :)
Classes are taught by a rotating team of MLA-certified instructors. All instructors are certified by Lindsey Ta and teach from the same curriculum. The final day, with live models, is closely supervised by the MLA team of working microblading artists to ensure an incredible first time microblading experience.
Online training takes about 8 to 15 hours to complete total. There is a BBP test required by the state of California that takes about 3 hours (If you're already registered "Body Art Practitioner" in CA, then you don't need to take this test.). This test happens outside of our website. In addition, there are 4 sections in our online training. The amount of time you spend depends on you and your work, but we find students usually spend up to 3 hours on each section.
Our online class requires a desktop computer (or laptop) and access to a printer in order to print out the worksheets. You may only access the online training on a single device in a single location (the application is tied to your IP address.). Our online training is not compatible with mobile devices. You will need access to a scanner or phone camera in order to turn in your completed worksheets.
The online training focuses on hairstroke drawing fundamentals and eyebrow drawing with a pencil. This will prepare you for your time in class, where you are hands on with microblading tools and live skin. You will have access to the online training as soon as you complete full payment of the class.
