turk saidwhat do you think those weird artifical tanning colours on bodybuilders in the contests. isnt there any nice-coloured tanning cream. if there is, please send a pic.
Little pictureless buddy: when you do a show, typically you'll tan using sunlight and UV beds for several weeks prior.
Thursday night, you'll get painted with a spray gun. It's kinda' like the spray in the tanning place but much heavier. Friday, typically after weigh ins, and the competitor's meeting, you'll get painted a second, or third time. Saturday morning, right before pre-judging, you'll get a touch up. There's a few variations in color and guys like Josh, here in Dallas, can highlight your mid-section (he's that good). Right before you walk on stage, you spray on PAM cooking spray for the glisten, and on top of that, usually, some form of vaso-dilator. It's all feels pretty weird...kinda' rubber-bandishess...I guess..lol. You get sprayed again, if needed, right before the night show, as well. It takes several days for it all to come off.
The tan gets adjusted for the lighting, which is usually much better if the event is being televised.http://www.jantana.com/
