Ah, summer – it’s the perfect time for cheap beer and barbecues, sleeping in, and tanning by the pool.

It’s also prime burning time if you spend a little too much time doing that last thing. (It’d be great if someone invented something… to protect your skin… from the sun… like, maybe sunscreen?)

Jokes aside, we’ve all been there, and there’s no shame in occasionally overexposing. People make mistakes.

…And then some people are just stupid. Like these people. Because they didn’t just fall asleep in the sun – they practically walked on it. And they have the bright red burns to prove it.

Here are 15 people who are so bad at tanning, they should probably stop going outside altogether.

1. Don’t forget your hands… or do, whatever.


2. Is that Z for Zorro?? (Next time, try rubbing it in).


3. At least he knows to protect his tattoos.
