About You

You know you should stay out of the sun, but you still want to be all tan and lovely for that special occasion, event or even just on a daily basis so you can wear those cute sundresses or shorts and feel confident and beautiful (and, yes, thinner!) Airbrush tanning has come a long way since the old days. Your fears about that “orange” glow or unnatural color should be a thing of the past. So come on, give airbrush tanning another shot!

About Me

My name is Kat or Kathy or Kate


I have lived in Palm Beach County since the early 80s and spent much of those first years sun worshipping. Not tanning, mind you, just burning and peeling and remaining stubbornly convinced I could tan. And then the damage I had done to my skin finally caught up to me about 10 years ago.

I was diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer known as Merkel Cell Carcinoma. My surgeon had to make 3 large incisions on my face and remove some lymph nodes in my neck to be sure there were no lingering bad cells. Thankfully, I had a plastic surgeon who performed some miraculous magic closing up the incisions and my scarring is hardly noticeable. But I still wanted that healthy-looking glow I had been trying to achieve for years.

So after this experience I became an avid consumer of airbrush tanning. I tried the mechanical version at tanning salons at first and then moved on to having my tan applied by a technician but still found something lacking. I did a lot of research and found that I was never given the proper instructions for pre-tanning and post-tanning care. Then I bought my own airbrush equipment and started tanning lots of friends and family (and having a colleague  spray me as well!). What a difference it made! I feel so much more confident and beautiful no matter what time of year it is. Having a healthy glow just makes you feel better about yourself somehow (and thinner as a bonus!). I attended trainings and conferences and learned so much about the industry and became a certified technician. I started The Tan Fairy because I am now dedicated to educating people about the damage and dangers of sun exposure. Hopefully I can reach the younger generation as well before the damage is done. My mission is to help women (and men!) get that same feeling that I get when I have a fresh spray tan to show off and also to let people know that they don’t have to cover up because they are pale. You can still have that healthy glow that we all want, especially living here in Florida (we do have to represent, after all!).

In furtherance of my mission, I want to make it as easy as possible for my clients. We all have very busy lives and that is why a large portion of my business is mobile. I will come to your location at the most convenient time for you. Sessions take about 30-40 minutes from start to finish (including set up, application of tan, breakdown of my equipment and a little education about post-tan aftercare. I bring all the equipment to you and set it up in your home (or other location).
