    Trying......how many times have you been in the bed? I would just be patient....it will come. It's not like being outside in the sun for a full day. It just takes a little longer in the bed. If your going nekkid than you have no tan lines to judge how much tan your getting. Dude if your not geting tan from the tanning bed than you are the first person I have ever heard of to not get a tan..... but I may be wrong?

    Tanning is all about consistency ........especially if you are really pale to begin with............it may take up to 5, 6+ sessions until you even start to see a little change...........my friend is really white and never reallty tanned until recently and she even got some color........and ive never seen this girl with any color...........so it'll definlity come eventually...........also.........are you going in the strongest beds?............do not even bother with the cheapest beds especially if you are hard to tan.......they will not do much good.......tanning isnt cheap........

    Do you use a tanning lotion? If not, before you go use any kind of lotion on your skin, esp. where you don't tan. Dry skin = no tan. Your tummy is getting red and burned because there is more pigmentation on your tummy. The tummy is easy to get tan.

    Your stomache is closer to the top of the panel. Your arms are kind of hidden by your sides. Tanning beds arent as efficiant as the sun. Your ass and back will burn because you are RIGHT on the panel.
    Your shoulders wont get tan because they are not in direct contact. Panel is horizontal and your shoulders are vertical when you lay down. Try to move into different positions.
