The extremely tanned lady in the photo above is Patricia Krentcil, a.k.a. the “tanning booth mom.” She recently got into some hot water for allegedly allowing her four-year old daughter to get into an upright tanning booth with her while she was getting a tan. This resulted in her daughter getting burns that Krentcil claims is a sunburn. The police beg to differ.

Ms. Krentcil obviously loves tanning. But seriously, does this woman think she looks good? She looks like a baked potato. And she’s only 44 years old. By the time she’s 50 she’ll look like The Cryptkeeper from Tales of the Crypt and slurring “I used to be pretty” into her gin and tonic. And am I seeing things, or perhaps not seeing things? Where are her teeth? Perhaps this mug shot will give you a better idea of what I’m talking about:

This lady clearly has a tanning addiction. But when it jeopardizes the safety of children, it becomes much more than an issue of vanity. Due to her actions, her child is currently in the custody of her father. Sadly, Ms. Krentcil will probably continue her visits to a tanning salon, oblivious to the fact that she looks awful and will probably get melanoma and die at an early age.

Do you think tanning salons should “cut people off,” like bars? When someone as tanned as Mr. Krentcil walks in, should tanning salons be allowed to turn her away?
