Learning to spray tan can be great way to earn extra income, ad on to an existing business or create a full-time profitable business. The earning potential for a Professional Spray Tan Artist can range between $200 to $2000 a week or more.
How does one become a seasoned spray tan artist? Well, it's not as easy as picking up equipment and solution and then waiving the gun in front of a client and pulling the panty down to reveal the tan-line. Becoming a seasoned and sought after spray tan artist takes time, a little bit of money ($3K), good technique, excellent business practices and customer service.
How does one learn this? This was the problem I was having when I first started. First of all learning how to spray tan off the internet or watching a youtube video is doable but not the best if you want to go pro. You need a mentor, someone skilled who can show you the best poses, distance, timing and best business practices.
As far as technique it's not as easy just spraying haphazardly around a client. You need to know the lines of the body, bone structure, problem areas, skin type and so much more to give your clients a flawless glow that is streak & splotch free, non-drippy or runny.
Now let's talk tools of the trade! Yes tools. Just like a craftsman, make-up-artist, fashion designer, etc... Spray tan artists have very specific tools to use! Our gun and machine and the products we use, are our tools of the trade. Inferior tools and products... well inferior spray tans.
Let's face it people!!! You can't create a masterpiece with plastic equipment and guns and cheap solutions. You need a good plug-and-play system with stainless steel parts, made in the USA that have consistent spray patters and machines that don't over-heat and fluctuate in airflow speed. That is why I love our plug and play system. It's so accurate, creates very low overspray (this means less solutions in the air) saving you money and clients that dry instantly and don't leave their appointment drippy, sticky or wet after they tan with you. I created our solutions to be clean non-toxic, to look and feel like a real tan and fade evenly with-out drying or cracking of the skin.
Best business practices range from business to business. For me, I believe in 100% tan satisfaction, offering products that are "Healthy" for you as the technician and for your clients (Plant Powered & Organic) and educating clients on the proper pre and post tanning care for their skin as well as offering follow up texts and calls. Also because my technique is precise and equipment is professional grade, my work environment is always, well ventilated, clean, pretty and inviting.

uv bed tanning industry feels the heat in los angeles and all over the world.
“I think selling UV tans will be illegal pretty soon,” said Bruce Le, owner of Tan Diego in Clairemont. “I blame it on everything that’s going on — the economy, the tanning tax and the dermatologists who are bashing the industry. It’s driving even some loyal customers away.”
A spray tan can provide some color without exposing a person to the risk of Melanoma (skin cancer).
Some Questions You Might Have about Artist applied spray tans:
Q1: How long is this process going to take?
A1: Although there are many preparation steps to this tanning process, once you come into the salon, it should only take about 15 minutes to complete your spray session. If you are new to this process, give yourself and extra couple minutes to make sure your bronzer has dried before getting dressed again.
Q2: How long will my tan last?
A2: Usually your spray will last anywhere from 5-7 days but if you decide to use a tan extender and proper moisturizer that you apply twice daily, it will last anywhere from 7-10 days! Check out our Gloe spray to replace your daily lotion – this one of my favorites.
Q3: Will the solution make me look orange?
A3: Every spray solution differs, so Sunless Beauty uses only the finest solution to ensure that every spray looks even and natural. Spray solution consists of DHA and Cosmetic bronzers, both of which will give you instant color. BUT our solution is also sugar and aloe based, vegan and filled with Vitamin A, C, E - which will tan you naturally.
Q4: Is spray tanning safe to do?
A4: DHA bronzers and Cosmetic bronzers are both FDA approved and the sugar and aloe based solution has no toxic chemicals and is more natural than most other solutions.

A5. No Sunless Beauty tans are artist applied and each tan is customized for your skin type, texture and are perfectly contoured to make you look beautiful, toned and flawlessly bronzed.

Into the Contour Tanning Business
Sunless Tanning is one of the fastest growing industries today. Sunless tanning was not affected by the economic down-turn, allowing spray tan artists to thrive in an otherwise bleak job market. The sunless revolution has begun and in the past few years it has turned itself into a thriving, billion dollar industry. It has grown furiously for more than a decade, and is projected to continue its rise over the next five years. As concerns are growing about the effects of UV rays and the growing skin cancer rate, many consumers are turning toward sunless tanning products as an alternative to sunbathing or tanning beds, which continues to help increase the popularity of spray tanning and self-tanning products. Contouring spray tanning has been featured in such media sources such as: Elle Magazine, Cosmo Magazine,...
