Tanning salon operators are on the rise in Ireland and have been doing so for decades, with more than 10,000 establishments opening in Ireland last year.
Here are the key things you need know about their businesses.
What is tanning?
Tanners are licensed salons where clients can choose from a range of treatments, such as tattoos, skin creams and piercings.
They are generally located in hotels or motels, but can be found in the most remote locations, including in remote villages and remote towns.
A tanning bed is a special type of tanning treatment used to make people more attractive to prospective clients.
They consist of a special mixture of hot water and chemicals to enhance the tan, and are typically used to create the look of an older person or the skin of a dying person.
A traditional tanning bath can take between six and 10 minutes to complete.
There are many types of tanneries in Ireland, with a range that can range from small ones with a number of booths to larger chains, such in the case of The Glen Hotel in Kilkenny.
The Glen Hotel is one of the largest and most successful in Ireland with more salons than in any other part of the country.
It offers many treatments, including tattoo, piercage and eyebrow treatments, but also body work, tattoos and skin cream treatments.
It has the largest number of tannery premises in Ireland.
It also offers the most popular treatments, with the vast majority of its clients choosing to have their skin treated.
The owners of The Inn, one of Ireland’s largest tanning premises, said they opened their premises in 1994.
It is now the country’s largest private tanning and cosmetic spa.
In recent years, many of the larger chains have opened tanning shops, although this has led to some local businesses being left out.
A lot of the smaller tanning centres in Ireland cater for smaller clients, including ones that have limited space and may only be able to cater for a few hours a week.
There is a number to watch out for if you are considering booking your first tanning appointment, however, because the majority of tanners do not have full time jobs.
They can be paid to do the work, but many of them are also struggling to pay their bills.
There’s also the issue of safety.
Many of the businesses have closed in recent years due to rising drug use and violence.
The National Drug Strategy for the 21st Century states that tanning is not safe, and a survey conducted in 2015 found that the majority felt they were not protected from violence in the industry.
People need to be aware of what they are looking at, as there are many tanning establishments that do not follow best practice and are often not inspected properly, said Irish tanning specialist, Dr Michael O’Connor, from the University of Limerick.
