Being an albino is a result from a lack of melinin which is a pigment that makes hair, skin, and eyes change color. Albinos are all white with pink eyes because they lack it. Melinin also is what changes the color of your skin when you tan. My question is, can albinos get a tan? (the way this fits into Medicine is the fact that being an albino comes from having both parents carring the albino gene and it wouldn't fit anywhere else)
Re: If albinos don't have melinin, can they get a tan?
