I have incredibly pale skin. Not your average pale–the type of pale that gets second degree burns from the sun. (Yes, this really happened!) I had to just accept the fact that I was never going to be tan. Tanning beds were too unsafe for me, and I just burn anyway. I saw a job opening for Air-Tan and thought that this would be the perfect part-time job for me. I went in for my interview thinking they would take one look at my skin and laugh. The exact opposite happened! Not only did I get the job, but I was able to come in and experience Air-Tan for the very first time.
I arrived at Air-Tan ready and excited for my first tan. There was no way I was taking my bra off my first time, so I wore a strapless bra (and continued to do so for the next six months of my tans!) I decided to go with a level 3 my first time, which is a medium tan. It was surprisingly not awkward at all, and I loved my new color! I had tried a booth before, so I was a little worried it would turn our streaky and weird. When I showered the next day, I was evenly tan and I LOVED my color. I looked at myself in the mirror at least 20 times that day because I could barely recognize myself with a tan. I was instantly hooked.
Fast forward to almost 2.5 years later, and I am now the General Manager of Fishers and still loving my tans. I am now comfortable enough to finally go topless after tanning clients and realizing that we really do not care what our clients’ bodies look like. It is so awesome that Air-Tan is around for people of all skin tones, but more importantly those people like me, who cannot tan no matter what the circumstances. We really do love our clients and take pride in making them feel great!
