    Always felt that was too metro for me but hearing about all these other people from gym doing it I conformed like a little faggot. :x:

    After 10 mins in there there was no change whatsoever and than, about 4 hours later I was RED. No burns though....I will probably do round 2 today.

    Soooo, how many sessions before I start looking more jacked? :mamoru:

    Tanning is relaxing. Like a sauna.

    You felt tanning was too hetero for you?

    I disagree.

    Don't be a sally. Go tanning again and go for as long as you can.

    Once you get a good burn then you will start adding color better.

    :rofl: jmezz encouraging the skin cancer

    there was a good edu on tanning posted in here a couple months ago by a member who has skin cancer....

    I seem to remember never having rookies tan more than once every 3 days because there's an effect on your skin even after you leave....

    a) it's worth investing in the more expensive beds = less burning
    b) don't go tanning if you're burnt. wait.
    c) if you haven't already, go for less time until you build up a base tan. If you burnt, you went too long.

    the lotion feeling and smell alone turns me off to the idea before I even get within 10 miles of a tanning salon.

    enjoy your cancer.

    red=skin damage.

    adding on to the red and peeling=more skin damage.
