  • Seats are limited to 12 people for class.
  • No, this class is open to all levels. To begin practicing in your area, you will need to check with your local county health department and inquire about the licensing needed to perform permanent makeup.
  • Upon completion of this class and the online training, you'll receive a certificate of attendence from our class. However, you will need to contact your local county health department for licensing in your area. Every county has different tests and requirements for artists to practice microblading.

  • 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.

    Please note, if you elect to purchase a Live Model Day, you will need to register for LA County. This will be an additional fee of $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 advanced class Combo Brows with a PMU Device, which you'll learn to use the PMU device and our combination technique.

  • Yes, we do! It's called Combo Brows with a PMU Device. It's for artists already familiar for Microblading with a manual tool and want to learn the PMU device and how to combine shading with hairstrokes.

  • You can learn the technique in 3 days, yes. However, you will need to practice on your own before you can begin working. We'll give you tips for practicing on synthetic skin so you can build your confidence until you feel you're ready. We also offer a 1-day course for supervised practice on a real model for students seeking additional, supervised practice.

  • Yes! We have a Facebook group exclusively for Microblading LA Alumni where students can show off their work, ask questions, and get answers from each other and Lindsey and her team.
  • 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 demonstration on the day 3 will be performed by an MLA Master Artist, usually your instructor.

  • Online training takes about 8 to 15 hours to complete total. There is a BBP test required by the state of California to practice microblading 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.
