      This is shocking! It's one thing to go into a tanning salon and another to take your child into one especially when you seem to have an obsession with them. This woman looks like she got attacked by the oompa loompas, she looks awful, how anyone can think that is nice looking is beyond me.

      Lord! She is the best advert from staying away from sunbeds that i've ever seen what the heck does she think she looks like? That poor child, good on the authorities for stepping in.

      I can't see myself why so many people get so addicted to these things, she looks absolutely shocking. Don't get me wrong I am not totally against people using sun beds as long as they are used in moderation and they don't go over the top. She doesn't look tanned she looks orange and that is not a good look.

      They probably wanna look like Snooki. What's wrong with tanning the normal way? Isn't it less dangerous than using a bed?

      I think it is yes, tanning in the sun can be dangerous and have the same effects I think but it takes alot longer using just sunlight whereas using a sunbed especially to that extent probably takes alot less and I would have thought could have been worse. I know it ages your skin using a sun bed too much.

      She obviously doesn't care what she looks like.

      That's what I figured. I know you can get UV rays from the sun, but I wasn't sure if it was stronger or weaker than using a bed.

      lol attacked by the oompa loompas. that is good.​
      But yeah, I never use those beds. Do it naturally or not at all. And don't get me started on the orange spray stuff.​

      I guess she thought looking like a half roasted duck would be attractive.

      I had a friend in high school who used that stuff, came in the next day looking like a carrot. I was tempted to find a rabbit :p

      I used to have psoriasis as a kid, and when I got a bit older, we thought of something along the lines of a tanning salon to help with it. But man, nothing like too much of a good thing though, right?
