It is not at all uncommon to turn to tanning beds, self-applied tans or spray tans, but these don’t always go the way they’re supposed to. And, because we keep seeing celebrities do it at major events, we thought we’d find some of the best tanning fails the internet has to offer.

Your girlfriend is nice, buddy, but there’s something about her that just doesn’t seem real. Maybe her bag is a fake? We can’t quite put our finger on it…

Something tells us she’s doing it wrong. If it’s only a color you would see inside something disposable a baby would wear, do not rub it on your face.

The Donald is clearly the king of bad tans. Many celebrities have tried to dethrone him, and even Snooki has come close, but Mr. Trump shall reign supreme as the Man of Many Colors.
