Sunburn Art: “Cool” New Trend of Burning Outlines into Your Skin Raises Chances of Cancer 50%

______________________________________________________________________________

The hip, happening, trendy new trend this summer is apparently to draw designs or company logos on one’s skin with sunscreen and sit out in the sun until the skin around it burns the design in.

It’s called “sunburn art,” and apparently it increases one’s chances of melanoma 50% and causes people’s skin to age that much faster. The whole point is to get severe sunburns to seal in the designs.

That is beyond stupid! I've had melanoma and I've never laid in the sun or gone to a tanning booth.

Melanoma Skin Cancer Rates are on the Rise

Article date: June 5, 2015
If rates of melanoma continue to increase at the current pace, 112,000 new cases will be diagnosed in 2030, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Melanoma is a dangerous type of skin cancer that can spread to other parts of the body if not caught early. Melanoma can be caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or sources such as tanning beds and sun lamps.

Incidence of melanoma on the rise among children and young adults
The incidence of melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer, has increased by more than 250% among children, adolescents and young adults since 1973, according to award-winning research to be presented by Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 51st Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Even if they don't get melanoma they'll probably end up with ugly scars.

Nonmelanoma skin cancers incidences jump by approximately 300 percent 
Recently released data show an alarming increase in skin cancer incidence: A study in the Archives of Dermatology revealed that more than two million people in the US develop over 3.5 million nonmelanoma skin cancers every year. This constitutes a more than 300 percent increase in skin cancer incidence since 1994, when rates were last estimated.

Nonmelanoma skin cancers, such as basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), are the most common forms of skin cancer. Though they are rarely life-threatening, nonmelanoma skin cancers can be disfiguring when not diagnosed and treated in a timely manner.

Also, sunblock is full of toxic chemicals that I think may have contributed to my melanoma because I when I wasn't avoiding the sun I was covering myself head to toe in it.
I use this now instead of sunblock. You have to use really hot water so I buy long sleeve shirts one size too big to compensate for shrinking. I wear wide brim hats now too.
