I know it is completley off the subject of nails but i am really interested in spray tanning and was wondering if anyone can give me any advice. I have looked on search but cant find any info. I am interested in the airbrush and compressor and not the booth. Can you do this service mobile? Are there any companies anyone can recomend? Is there any training or would i need to get videos to learn?

All help appreciated

I used to do spray tanning , and i used to stand my clients in a shower base, if you know what i mean, cos it was easy to clean afterwards!!

The tanning spray doesnt go everywhere, cos you work about 6 - 12 inches away from the client, and it comes out in a really fine mist, just the same as when you're airbrushing nails.

I also did the su-do course, and found it really helpful.

cause your spraying the body not the room! seriously, i do this in the shower but whne wiping the walls there is no overspray - if you don't get it on the person only you are just wasting money - and trust me after a few practices you will be this accurate....all the best with your plans

Its been great reading this post as I too am looking at spray tanning and ANY advice is a help. I already have a SIMair TC2000 compressor for my nail art, does anybody know if this is OK to use for tanning too, or do I need to re-invest in a new compressor? Will be checking out the options at Olympia but in anyone can point me in the right direction beforehand it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
Shaza

Hi Shaza...
Yes the tc2000 is fine for airbrush tanning...i bought the tc5000 and i am going to be using su-do tanning...i watched their video yesterday and it was showing useage with both compressers...you may need to use a different needle and nozzle in your gun though...hth...let me know how you get on!

Hi Denise

Thanks for that - think I will check out Su-Do at Olympia and invest in a new airbrush gun just for tanning.

Yes you will. I started out doing airbrush nails and now doing a su-do tanning course on the 30th of march. I didnt have to buy a new compressor, i just rang tech support @ su-do and they advised me that my current one was suitable but i would just need to get a different adaptor. so i have just purchessed the airbrush and liquid pack which cost £195.00.

Hope this info is of help.
