2-Day Intensive Microblading Workshop

The Art of Microblading training course is a 2-day intensive workshop, designed to teach you MLA's most popular permanent makeup technique: microblading. This class is perfect for working artists who want to skip past the basics or for new artists who have already learned the fundamentals in prior training and want to dive in to MLA's technique. This laser-focused class, taught by working Microblading LA artists, will introduce you MLA's manual method of microblading (without a PMU machine) and our signature eyebrow mapping we use everyday in the studio. You will leave this class with the full knowledge of MLA's techniques, eager to introduce them to your paying clients.

Hands-on Experience in a Working Microblading Studio

You will work side-by-side with Lindsey Ta's team of professional microblading artists. This is an experience like no other! You will spend your time at our studio, where our busy team provides services for real clients, not in a rented auditorium.

On day 1, you'll learn our techniques step-by-step, then practice on synthetic skin.

On day 2, you'll perform microblading with a live model, under the close supervision of the MLA team of certified instructors and working artists.

Who Is This Class For?

Working artists and previous MLA students welcome! This class is for those with prior PMU knowledge, either from a prior permanent makeup class or from experience working with paying clients. (Those with no PMU experience will prefer our Permanent Makeup Fundamentals class). The ability to draw eyebrow shape and the understanding of how permanent makeup pigments interact with skin are essential for getting the most out of this class.

  • 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.
  • You'll receive a certificate of completion 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. 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 training@microbladingla.com 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! You can learn the fundamentals. We'll give you tips for practicing on synthetic skin so you can build your confidence until you feel you're ready.
  • 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 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.
