Jillian Silva is a third generation Las Vegas native. She went to High School on the East Side where she took advanced drawing and painting courses. She was a natural artist with a good eye for design and symmetry.
Jillian started working right out of high school at a small eyebrow threading boutique in 2011 and she became obsessed with brows! With her natural artistic abilities and her warm personality…she built a loyal clientele. She heard about Microblading in 2015, became very interested and dove into a six month apprenticeship here in Vegas. Her already honed brow artistry regarding design and shape gave her an advantage and it didn’t take long to develop her technical skills.
She has spent the last six years taking advanced courses, studying her craft and leveling up her microblading brow game. Due to her own natural abilities, her dedication and passion, she has become one of the top microblading artists not only in Las Vegas, the entire United States.
Jillian has decided to hang her tools here at the Girlz Ink Studio and we couldn’t be more excited or proud to have her to join our team!

Kat began her career in Los Angeles as a topical makeup artist and esthetician. She quickly realized she had a knack and an artistic eye for symmetry and esthetics. When she decided to move to Las Vegas, she acquired a job as a cocktail waitress at one of the major hotels on the Las Vegas strip. It was originally meant to be a temporary position, but her love of people and service kept her there for several years.
In 2010, Teryn asked Kat to join her in growing the Girlz Ink brand. The dream was to build a company that served both the permanent makeup client as well as the artist. Together, they opened their very own Girlz Ink Studio, launched the Girlz Ink online store and online training academy.
Today, Girlz Ink is one of the industries most trusted companies. They are world renown for their highly skilled and talented artists who serve the Las Vegas area, their top quality PMU pigments, products and tools, and their in depth training classes for both the beginner and advanced artist. Kat was instrumental in these accomplishments.
Kat fell in love with the permanent makeup industry. She is grateful for the opportunity to support and elevate both current and future artists.
