spray-on_tan at a body building contest…somebody forgot to spray someplace…


An orange-brown pigment which is sprayed on the skin surface to simulate a suntan. It has been promoted as a safe alternative to tanning beds which are linked to an increased risk of melanoma and other skin cancers.

Recent data suggests that the active chemical used in spray tans, dihydroxyacetone (DHA), has the potential to cause genetic alterations and DNA damage, and thus may not be as safe as was once thought.

The image is that of contestant 49 in the 2014 Arnold Classic Europe Bodybuilding contest in Madrid, who apparently forgot to spray his face, resulting in one of the goofiest “oops” in recent history
