- In lieu of an apprenticeship, an applicant may submit proof that he/she has successfully completed a course of study in tattooing, body piercing, and/or branding in a school licensed or accredited as a school by any state or federal agency. The course of study must have been completed in the same practice area that the applicant has applied for a license.
- A person applying under this subsection shall also submit proof of practical experience that includes at least twenty-five (25) completed procedures in the same field that the applicant has applied for licensure.
