Erase tan lines, even out your skin tone, and kiss the ghost of winter paleness goodbye with today's golden deal: $22 for a $45 full-body airbrush tanning session at Fit to Be Tan.

Sunless tanning gives you a lustrous, fresh-off-the-beach glow without exposing your skin to beach bullies or the powerful rays of our binary suns. If you’ve only used tanning beds and beach blankets to achieve an elegantly tinted you, it’s time to give the untraditional a whirl. The trained technicians at Fit to Be Tan customize their FDA-approved, organic formula to each person’s skin tone and musical tastes. There are no dyes involved in the process, only natural ingredients that synthesize a reaction similar to a day in the sun, so draculas are still out-of-luck, but us normals are good to go gold. Answers to more common questions can be found here.

Change your stripes as if you were a futuristic chameleon, amazing friends and enemies alike with your dramatic transformation. Show the prom date who stood you up for pasty Cheri what a mistake he made all those years ago when you unveil your newly effulgent complexion. Get rid of tan lines, or add a few unusual ones of your own design with the help of the expert airbrushers at Fit to Be Tan; their personalized service and hand application will ensure that you get the exact tan you want, unless you want a purple tan.


Express Night Out (scroll down to “Airbrush Application”) wrote up Fit to Be Tan's airbrush application; Yelpers give it 4.5 stars; and people provide glowing testimonials on its website:

  • The customized hue looked a lot like the natural shade of our tester's sun-worshipping youth. Which means fair- or dark-skinned clients can get colors that will better match their complexions. – Express Night Out
  • Love love love the tan. The color was just right, and it has brightened my attitude during the last few days when it seemed like the sun was nowhere to be found. Thank You! – Erin, website testimonial

With the arrival of Fit to Be Tan, airbrush tanning is finally a viable technology, which is safe, affordable, and stunning. Not so for other airbrush-on technologies that unfortunately have a ways to go before they’re ready for mass consumption:

  • airbrush-on 401(k) enrollment forms
  • airbrush-on lice
  • airbrush-on beige (like tan, but less saucy)
  • airbrush-on degree in Russian literature
  • airbrush-on revenge

Fit To Be Tan

Friends come in handy when one needs a shoulder to cry on or a body to experiment on. Luckily, Fit to Be Tan owner Heather Boss has many. After researching non-UV-based tanning methods in 2007, she began experimenting with airbrush tanning, perfecting the combination of solution and technique after many trials on her willing friends. After word spread from her happy test subjects, Boss opened Fit to Be Tan, which focuses on airbrush tanning and healthy skincare. She uses all natural solutions that bronze the skin without relying on harmful rays from the sun.
