A. A tanning facility shall post a warning sign in a conspicuous location where it is readily readable by persons entering the establishment. The sign shall contain the following warning:

DANGER: ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION

Repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation may cause chronic sun damage
to the skin characterized by wrinkling, dryness, fragility, and bruising of
the skin, and skin cancer.
Failure to use protective eyewear may result in severe burns or
permanent injury to the eyes.
Medications or cosmetics may increase your sensitivity to ultraviolet
radiation. Consult a physician or nurse practitioner before using a sunlamp
if you are using medications, have a history of skin problems, or believe
you are especially sensitive to sunlight. Pregnant women or women taking
oral contraceptives who use this product may develop discolored skin.

IF YOU DO NOT TAN IN THE SUN, YOU WILL NOT TAN FROM USE OF AN ULTRAVIOLET SUNLAMP.
