Like ripened fruits, people with healthy-colored skin tend to spend less time loitering in orchards and are more likely to get picked up at the grocery store. Catch the eye of passing orangutans with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get $50 worth of tanning services and products at Urban Tan, a comfortable, relaxing sun studio in the Pearl District.
Urban Tan is a full-service bronzery equipped with four types of UV beds, Mystic Tan spray booths, and a cornucopia of high-quality products. If you are in equal need of a catnap and some perked-up pigments, rest your noggin in the cozy Ergoline 800 bed, with rejuvenating aqua mist and aroma features ($35 for one session). Or if you have a second snooze date scheduled with the dentist's chair later in the day, snuggle up in the Ergoline Advange 350 bed with an enhanced facial tanner ($15 for one session) to achieve an extra-rich countenance color that makes your chompers really pop. Customers that are in tonal-transformation time crunches should opt for a UV-free Mystic Tan ($30 for one session). Spray tans in Mystic booths take only 60 seconds, which is not even a twentieth of the time it takes Mr. Sun to primp and pomade his hair in the morning before he even considers shining a bit.
Consult with a friendly staff member if you want an expert opinion about what tanning option is right for you or if you have any questions about Urban Tan's full stock of lotions and eye protectors. The salon is open for appointments and walk-ins every day of the week, so even if a ghost shows up unannounced in your mirror on some Wednesday, you'll have a safe place to escape.
Citysearchers give Urban Tan a perfect five-star average rating.

There may be one simple goal at Urban Tan—to attain a dark, sun-kissed body—but there are many ways of achieving it. This tanning facility stocks numerous tanning booths and beds equipped with a veritable selection of designs, lamps, and features that help each client receive the tan that they prefer. Take, for instance, the Miracle Sun Saturn—its lamps produce specialized ratios of UVB to stimulate melanin production and just the right amount of UVA to oxidize the UVB into a rich, even brown tone. The KBL America 4500 system includes 400-watt facial tanners, and the Ergoline Excellence 800 Turbo features VibraSound so that tanners don’t have to squeeze their favorite pop singer into the booth with them. In addition to their advanced tanning equipment, Urban Tan carries more than a dozen lotions from Swedish Beauty, California Tan, and Designer Skin.
