    I work in a tanning salon and see hundreds of people come in and tan, male and female. On the other hand all of my guy friends say it is gay and the concept is too "weird".
    **Indoor tanning, What are your thoughts?**

    Used to do it
    But then I realized it's pretty damn pointless
    The sickest thing ever is when you see those old men and women who go tanning and they look like their skin is made of leather ... ewwwwww ... just like the old woman in Something About Mary

    At aria last weekend I met a girl who said she masturbates in the tanning bed.

    She also told all her girls that they "absolutely have GOT to try it sometime."

    mmm.... pass.

    Those would be some mighty incriminating tanlines.

    I think tanning is nasty. If you do it for a long time your skin starts to lose its elasticity and becomes leathery, like the above mentioned woman in Something about Mary.

    I used to go. I am half polish and my polish genes determined my skin color, so I am a white mofo. So I wanted some color and used to "power tan". Hit the bed every 2 days. I did get dark, I did get a nice tan. BUT, it cost so fucking much.

    I pretty much stopped going, and in NO TIME AT ALL, I am white as fuck again.

    All in all, it's alot easier then being in the sun. I actually like the standup beds (except I am too fucking tall for them now) but unless you shit $$, I wouldn't go.

    :) <-------- Needs a tan

    I think it would be funny when you answer the phone to say 'welcome to Hooker Burger, how can I help you?'

    I go periodically... I hate being too white. Although I'm not albino by any means...

    Plus I work 9-5 and never have a chance usually to get outside and get some natural sun.

    But I am by no means a leather face :D And I feel 10-20 minutes of controlled Sun is better that hours outside with pollution and UV rays :D

    I tan and I love it:D
    I don't look like leather. I go like 2 or 3 times a week but i take care of my skin so it looks really natural.
    I also only do it in the winter.

    I saw this guy on Conan O'Brian, and he has this shit that he rubs on his face to make it look like he has a tan. No beds or sun with this guy, just some kind of product in a jar that he puts on his face.

    Conan tried putting some on too and it just turned into a massive mess.

    Funny show.

    :cool: <---- I rub shit on my face for colour.

    UV rays are what give you a tan, whether it's outside or inside...

    Concentrated UV (i.e. tanning bed) over your whole body is pretty bad... 15 minutes in a tanning bed is equivalent to smoking a pack of cigarettes in its carcinogenic potential (skin cancer vs. lung cancer <----- let's have a death match).

    There is no such thing as a "healthy tan".

    Melanoma... mmm, yum.

    Most people that go to tanning salons look too fake and well, just gross.
    Like all the girls in London. Fucking Western sluts.

    Not all of us are like that :D

    My dad shaved his head for a charity thing back in the fall.. He decided to keep shaving his head so he started to go tanning to even out the colour.. he still goes fairly regularly.. he really enjoys it.

    There is not only the benefit of getting a nice tan but UV(tanning) does a lot of good stuff too. It helps clear up acne, it makes you happier, and it also boosts your sex drive :D

    Yeah, sure it does...

    It gives you cancer. Period.

    Saying that it is healthy is like saying cigarette smoke exercises your lungs.

    A tan is caused by damage to your DNA... damage to DNA leads to cancer... simple fact.

    Cancer from a tanning bed is only caused by continuous burning. Tan safely and moderately and it is ok.
  25. PosTMOd

    PosTMOd Well-Known TRIBEr

    Absolutely... same with cigarettes-- smoke safely and moderately...

    There is no safe tan or safe cigarette...

    You see, a tan is *caused* by damage to your DNA... that means that by the time you have a tan, you have caused damage... get it?
