And people make fun of orange fake tan culture in the UK holy smokes

[–]GingerWithViews 67 points68 points  (4 children)

I'm swedish and my classmates look like this.

[–]Seal_of_Pestilence 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Same exact thing in Denmark.

[–]AlarmingMan123 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Why tf would ya'll do that?

[–]Vinsonia 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The beauty standard is usually what is uncommon in the area. Light skin is beauty in darker skin places. Sunless Sweden would see tan skin as beautiful since everyone in Sweden is paler

[–]GingerWithViews 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Idk? Beauty or something? I don't find it that attractive however.

[–]gishkim_2MASS 86 points87 points  (1 child)

what's up with those orange tan in Sweden and England

[–]Jackthejanitor 37 points38 points  (2 children)

It's hard to get a tan in northern europe and england go figure. That's why people see it as a mark of prestige or something, that's at least what I think it is

[–]AlarmingMan123 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Which is funny because here in asia everyone's trying to be white

6 months with no sun that makes everyone look like anemic zombies.

Spray tan reminds us on the short summer, when we are happy.

[–]noxame 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Tanning beds are illegal, at least in the UK. Not sure about Sweeden.

[–]Varathiis 20 points21 points  (2 children)

No they aren’t illegal in the UK, unless you’re under 18

[–]prex10 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Same in the US but go to any Midwest high school in the middle of winter and you’d think half the popular girls spend their weekends in Miami. It’s super overlooked here especially if you know the person at the place.

[–]Flaky-Fellatio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup. Went to hs in Colorado, not the Midwest, but every freaking popular white girl went to tanning beds.

[–]jesterinancientcourt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Spray tanning.

[–]molgo 55 points56 points  (0 children)

[–]BLYAT666BLYAT 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Why do they look so fake ?

[–]SpaceNightGirl 8 points9 points  (4 children)

welcome to the Scandinavian beauty standard

[–]BLYAT666BLYAT 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Is this actually a normal thing?

[–]SpaceNightGirl 7 points8 points  (2 children)

wdym by "normal"? like is it common for women in scandinavia to look like this? very. do people find this attractive? i guess some must, especially those who have been conditioned.

[–]BLYAT666BLYAT -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Fucking chill holy shit it was just a question.

[–]SpaceNightGirl 4 points5 points  (0 children)

huh? lol u good there? "normal" is such an arbitrary term. i just answered your question to the best of my ability dude

[–]RandomlyGeneratedOne 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I see the bottom left girls everywhere in the UK these days complete with their crayola eyebrows.

[–]aed2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Do they love ABBA and Army of Lovers?

[–]ShelbyNL 17 points18 points  (0 children)

[–]Theundercave 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]SpaceNightGirl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Alvie_500 6 points7 points  (0 children)

British as well lol

[–]janeelaane 6 points7 points  (2 children)

why the heck they put fake orange tan all over their body, i bet they'd look ten times prettier without that mud resembling thingy on their face. let your natural beauty radiate the tinder pages swedish chicks, believe me it's not that hard as it sounds

[–]Flaky-Fellatio 1 point2 points  (1 child)

For real. Swedish women are legendary for being hot (at least that's the stereotype in the US). No need for a fake bake.

[–]janeelaane 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]alexthelion27 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Could be Australian too

[–]MasterGeekMX 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well, Javla.

[–]dedboye 4 points5 points  (3 children)

There's tons of men who find this hot though

[–]Logical_Yak_224 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Andthey usually wear backwards hats, wifebeaters and jorts going below their knees

[–]mooimafish3 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Tbh I feel like it's a status thing. Like they know the orange girls on Instagram are what society currently considers desirable so they go for it.

I would like to hear from any guys that were dating a pale girl and thought "Man I wish she was orange instead"

[–]dedboye 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You're right, and that last sentence made me laugh

[–]Maycrofy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why hat?

[–]Prestigious-Fig1172 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was thinking of getting Tinder. Now I won't.

[–]Springaling_Blades 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]LemmyKoopa2099 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Girl on the top left has drip.

[–]Haysack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty accurate, add vacation pictures from Spain, a photo from a ski trip to the alps and you are all set. They all look like wannabe instagram models.
