— Arizona sun tannery owner Joey Bunch admits he lied to his customers when he told them they would be able to see more sun on the outside.
He said he was told by the sun care company that they could see more of the sun in the sun than they would see in a natural tan.
Bunch says he never had any intention of deceiving customers.
“I didn’t lie to anybody,” he said.
“I just don’t think that’s a good idea.”
Buchanan said he is still trying to figure out how the sun will be visible at the beach.
The Sun Sun Spa, located in Tempe, is owned by Bunch, who was born and raised in Tucson.
He said he started working in the spa after being diagnosed with skin cancer.
“I was very naive,” he told ABC News.
Sun tanning is a form of sun protection.
It is believed to be the safest way to tan.
But Bunch says it is not as safe as sunscreens.
If you are sun tanting, don’t let it happen to you, he said in an interview with ABC News on Friday.
There are more tanning facilities in Arizona than there are places to tan, so Bunch decided to make a change.
I think if I just went into this and said, ‘I’m going to make my money back and get a good tan’ I wouldn’t have a tan, he told The Arizona Republic.
His clients can be skeptical, so he says he’s not trying to sell them on sun tan.
