Yes; there is no hazard to anyone else you come in contact with after you have been to a tanning booth.

I would add that tanning booths are of great risk to you however. The radiation exposure is increasing your personal risk of skin cancer.

Why not use the liquid spray tanning products and eliminate this health risk?
