Went tubing for several hours. Had a weird harlequin effect. Red on my front (top side in the inner tube) half and dead fish belly white on the back—and there was a line.

My friends drew a smiley face and a star on my back in sunscreen once and I got very badly burnt. They stayed there for about 6 months. I also have a permanent zootsuit tan from rowing.

I tried to put sunscreen on my own back. I got to the space between my shoulder blades and thought I had done a pretty good job. So I went to lay out with my friend and when I got back in the hotel room she looked at my back chuckled. Turns out I had my own handprint where I had reached. After getting more sun it was gone in a couple days thank goodness.

I also did this one on purpose: The same friend and I put heart-shaped stickers on our hip and then we’d go out in the sun for the day. When we took a shower, we would replace the stickers. After about four or five days of being in the sun with the stickers we took them off and had a little heart-shaped tan where the stickers were. It was kind of cute.

Once wore a 1-piece bathing suit on holiday with straps down the sides – it’s weird to be tanned in stripes down your sides!
I couldn’t even do much to even it out because then I’d risk burns on the already tanned parts!

As a small child, I fell asleep under an upside-down laundry basket and when I woke up, I had a checkered sunburn. Seriously! Gack!

I played soccer in high school and had a lovely knee-only tan for four years.

About two months ago my bangs left a lovely, white swoop shape on my forehead after staying in the sun too long.

I currently have a small circle on the inside of my right calf that got burned, and is now tan. (I think it happened at the same time as the now infamous bangs tan.)

I laid on my stomach for too long on the beach and my entire back was sun burnt & red while my front side was completely normal.

I have a nice little tan line on my wrist from the sweat band i wore while playing tennis and, of course, the tan line on my ring finger from my wedding rings.

I used to work at a carwash when I was a kid. And I’d wear TopSiders without socks all day.

So, half of the top of my foot would be tanned a deep, dark brown… and the other half would be fish-belly white. So, if I was elsewhere walking around without shoes on, people’d come up and ask what was wrong with my feet.

fell asleep on my stomach and the strings from my bikini top spread out in the shape of a bow on my back. had pretty distinct tan line for the rest of the vacation.
