I set up wherever they want me to. I have set up in someone's living room before and still sprayed people topless. I just turned it so the opening was away from the entrance to the room. It worked well. Most people want you to set up in their bathroom or a bedroom though anyway.

Absolutely you can. Turn the front of you gun ( the one that you move so you can change from a vertical to a horizontal spray) at a diagonal. Turn the amount of spray way down in the back. You need to spray in a circular motion like you do with an airbrush . Go very slow! You might need to adjust the ring in the front (the one that holds the front on ) Practice on a card board box with water.
Okay, so there is a round spray pattern coming out at the diagonal, right? So then you put extra on the tan lines? Or spray just the tan lines? I need to learn how to do this.

Depends on if they already have a dark enough tan or not. You put extra on the untanned area's and very lightly mist the area around the tan line. Then you spray the them again if they need it.

Re: Is it possible to hide tan lines when spray tanning??!!

I use a small airbrush gun instead of my HVLP gun. You use it with a small compressor and I have found it much easier to control. You can get the smalll compressor for well under $100 and the gun can cost as little as $10, but I would recommend spending a little more since you do get what you pay for....:lol:

Last week I sprayed a woman with vitiligo for the first time. I am sooo impressed with the results. She told me that she feels like she has been let out of prison. The owner of my salon(I opperate out of a nail salon) is going to send a mailing out to the dermatologists in the area to let them know of this alternative for their vitiligo patients.

Re: Is it possible to hide tan lines when spray tanning??!!

I purchased a pop-up tent with no flooring and it works great! I used black flat sheets on the bottom. Be sure to wash your sheets regularly...

When I do tanning parties, I let the customer lead the way on where to set up. The majority of the parties I have done, the girls don't care if they see each other. I have done a couple where the girls are more modest and set up in the kitchen, then called each on in as the previous tanner made it to the bathroom.
