I don’t personally but a friend of mine used to get them all the time and she said she couldn’t swim after getting one.

You definitely can’t swim after you get one (that is, if you want it to stay on). I agree, it’s stupid. I was annoyed to find this out too. It was the entire reason I got one (I’m ridiculously pale) and it was quite counterproductive!

You can’t swim, and when it starts to come off it looks HORRIBLE. I have gotten a few spray tans but won’t ever do it again because of the aftermath. It looks good for about 2-3 days and then you have to wear long sleeves and pants to cover up the parts that start to rub off. If you aren’t very pale, it may not look as bad (but then why would you get the spray tan anyway!).

I’ve gotten 2 spray tans – both before cruises – and I had no problems at all with it coming off or looking splotchy.  I had mine done about 2 days before I was in the water.

@sunshinebee:  Yeah lotions work better because they aren’t nearly as dark so it’s not as noticeable when it starts to wear off. It takes a lot of patience and practice though to prevent streaks.

My sister in law had this done by a person also and they told her also to be careful not to sweat to much because it would start to run .

I would REALLY go to a salon your something and have it done by a professional. I had a friend that did it at home with some help… hell… she turned orage for days :O

@sunshinebee:  It was at a spa where they give you a tiny paper thong and you have to stand in a little room and get sprayed by a girl.
