Sunburn art: the dangerous summer trend

Spread the love

Sunburn art, a new method that consists of using the sun to get a tattoo on the skin, seems to be the new fashion for summer 2015: a practice that is not without risk!

Stencils for making tattoos

Who has never made drawings using stencils in their childhood?

Well, some adults use this method to get tattoos on their skin: they apply a stencil on the skin or shape designs using sunscreen and let themselves “grilling” in the sun for a long time in order to obtain a white drawing that stands out on burnt red skin.

A trend that is a hit on social networks to the chagrin of dermatologists

This new trend has been increasingly popular on social networks since the beginning of July.

Needless to say, this new fashion has dermatologists screaming, fearing the increasingly frequent appearance of skin cancer.

The latter therefore remind us, again and again, that sunburn damages DNA, accelerates skin aging and increases the risk of skin cancer.

Five sunburns between the ages of 5 and 15 increase the risk of melanoma by 80% in adulthood.
