14 unfortunate spray tans from the brave souls awesome enough to share

Every time you opt for a spray tan you’re basically taking a large leap of faith. If you pick another person to spray paint their work of art on your body, high-five for confidence. If you choose to manually apply, you’re taking a huge gamble on yourself. And if you’re letting a machine take the wheel, there’s a solid chance you might look like Ross from Friends.

Even if the application process was accomplished perfectly, heat, emotions, and weather might have other plans for your skin. Coming from someone who’s definitely had a lot of good, bad and ugly spray tans, props to all of these people for at least attempting not to burn the skin they’re in.
