  • Why would you go to a tanning bed in the first place? In case you haven't heard, it causes cancer!

  • Um I'd say probably like 7 or 8. I used to work at a tanning salon and we would have people leave their 4 year olds waiting and they would run around or try to walk out the door and we were basically having to babysit that was really irritating. If she is well behaved and you trust her enough to not cause trouble, I don't see a problem with it.

  • It depends on the kid, but definitely by 7 or 8, possibly earlier.
