At Bronze515 we have a strict policy, read below:
No body shaming. No putting yourself down because of your wrinkles, skin folds, saggy boobs, dirty hair, unshaved legs, pits, and lady bits. No shaming yourself for your stretch marks from having babies or not having babies, for weight loss or weight gain. We don't care about any of it! We do care though about your tan and the experience you get from us.
We get it. Life is rough.That's why we are here. Our job is to not judge you, but to tan you. We look at bodies all day long. Consider us body artists. We aren't staring at your body but we are looking at how the solution hits your body. We are creating a beautiful masterpiece to give you that confidence you need to glow. It's not just a tan, it's an experience at Bronze515 and while we understand you may be nervous, don't be!
You deserve this!
