The Sun Tanning Stencil Robe gives you a “sun tatto”, also cancer

Suntantattoo

Araargh! With my super-pale skin, I’ve long-since learned to avoid getting a sun-tan like you’d avoid an axe-wielding murderer running rampant through your home. So this idea totally freaks me out. As you can see from the picture, it’s basically a robe with lots of cut-out areas that allows you to get yourself a "sun tattoo". Lie in the sun long enough, though, and you’ll also get a good chance of developing skin cancer, which is the main reason I hate this, although to be honest, I probably wouldn’t like it even if it didn’t involve frying your skin. What do you think?

    I think it’ll look particularly weird when the tan fades and the pattern ends up looking like it happened by accident.
    I can imagine this stencil being used with spray tan though (I’m sure that’s what they did for the illustration). I’m not a fan of fake tan but would be intrigued by animal designs – what about a giraffe pattern, or a more subtle light/dark shading to emulate your favourite species of hyrax?

    Personally, I think this is a great idea. I’ve been thinking of getting myself a tattoo for a rather long while now but I know I am too inconsistent to keep to one design and this seems like a good alternative because it is not permanent but can look good as well. This design isn’t particularly attractive but I think I am going to get artsy and have it done.
    Thank you for inspiring.

    It reminds me of some pictures I saw of Hiroshima victims where their clothing had fused with the skin on their back, and you could still see the pattern.
