You should wait at least seven to ten days to give your skin time to heal. If you have fair skin i would suggest waiting up to two weeks before getting back in a tanning bed. Also remember to use a tanning lotion with a sunblock in it to prevent skin damage and cancer

You really shouldn't tan at all if you have tattoos because it will make your colors fade really quick, but if you insist, I would wait at least two weeks after getting anything done, and make sure you cover the tattoo with high spf sunblock.

How long should you wait to go tanning after getting your belly button pierced?

It is NOT RECOMMENDED to go tanning after any body piercing. When lying in a tanning bed, the jewelry that is in a new piercing will heat up and burn your raw pierced skin. This is not good for the healing process. I'm not sure what happens if you do, but to be on the safe side, DON'T TAN WITH A NEW PIERCING!!!!

How long after tanning can you bath?

If you have been tanning with a basic accelerator or intensifier then you can bath immediately after tanning without hindering your tanning results. If you have been tanning with a lotion containing tingle then it is recommended you wait at least a few hours after exposure. A shower can actually increase the tingle sensation to an uncomfortable level. Finally if you are tanning with a product containing bronzers or a color guide then it is recommended that you wait about 4 hours before bathing. DHA bronzers are continuing to work and bathing can halt the process.

You get these itchy burning bubbles on your ankles and hands from tanning what are they?

These are heat blisters. Heat blisters appear before you become burned (as in touching fire, not "sunburned"). Next time, stay in the bed/booth for a shorter period of time, and use a moisturizing tanning lotion. If you use a "tingle" lotion, wait until after you have hit your tanning plateau, as it may cause blistering beforehand. In the mean time, you can treat them with regular Aloe; the kind that comes in a big bottle of green gel. It will keep the itching from bothering you too much, and hydrate your burned skin.
