The staff at Lutra Tanning knows how hard it can be to fit tanning into a busy schedule. So when they first started offering their FDA-approved airbrush tans, they decided to take their equipment directly to their client for safe, convenient tans in the comfort of a home or office. Technicians set up shop inside a pop-up tent, which offers clients privacy as well as shields houses from any errant spray. From within this tent, technicians can quickly coat clients in a safe spray that brings out a flawless golden glow without clients facing the risks resulting from bad sunburns or tanning beds training to be venus flytraps.
