Some viral challenges are cool. But let’s face it. Most are downright stupid. The latest stupid challenge: Sunburn Tattoos.
Dumbasses are putting stencils or stickers on their skin, they lying in the sun without sunscreen. After they turn a nice shade of burnt, they remove the stencil to reveal their “tattoo.”
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Manish Shah says this challenge is dangerous. “At first glance, it may look like harmless fun in the sun. The bottom line is that sunburn tattoos are extremely dangerous and can put you at serious risk of skin cancer… For the stencil, or tattoo, to be visible, you would have to damage the surrounding tissue enough that it either tans heavily or burns.”
Dr. Shah says he’d rather see his teenagers get real tattoos than do this b.s. challenge. Oh, snap!
