Sunblock FAILS: Where SPF Meets WTF (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 06/22/11 09:34 AM ET   Updated: 08/22/11 06:12 AM ET

Summer is officially here, so when you make your inaugural visit to the beach, make sure you don't forget that oh-so-important bottle of sunblock. And even more importantly, make sure you don't miss a spot or two (or ten). Protection is obviously the number one reason to use the stuff, but if that's not enough, just take a look at these unfortunate/daring folks below who got the kind of "custom" tans you pay for in pain instead of cash.

Whether from lack of sunscreen, precariously placed bathing suits or ridiculous pranks, these people all ended up with what one site refers to as tanning disasters. No argument here!
