Here's one summer trend we are staying far, far away from.

"Sunburn art" or "tan tattoos," is the latest and most dangerous trend hitting social media. The so-called art, can be found on Instagram under the hashtag "sunburnart" and is created when one exposes unprotected parts of their skin.

Going out in the sun without protection is one thing, but purposely staying out to create "art" on your body is unhealthy as it gets. Sustaining five or more sunburns can increase your lifetime melanoma risk by 80 per cent, according to The Skin Cancer Foundation.

Watch the video above to find out why you should never attempt any of these tattoos.
