A woman in Northern Ireland claims people accuse her of blackface, or trying to “switch races” due to her “extreme” tan, which she achieves in part through injections.

“People say that I wanted it to be a black woman, and that I wanted to switch races and stuff just because I’m tanning, but I don’t really care,” said Hannah Tittensor, a 22-year-old student from Belfast. “These people don’t really know me.”

Tittensor, who says that she “can not live without having a tan, that on a recent episode of Barcroft Media, “Hooked on the Look” series that she loves having a dark skin “looks a lot better.” They also said that they reached her skin by a combination of tanning beds and the online-obtained injections of a chemical called Melanotan, in contrast to the use of tanning sprays, get that too “patchy” for her liking.

Tittensor admitted her habit might be an “obsession”, as she claimed that she feels better when she’s tan. She also regularly posts photos of herself on Instagram, in which she said critics “attack” on her skin.

“I have a few people of course who say nice things,” she said. “[But] if you type in ‘blackface’ on Instagram, or even Google, my name will come up. Just for having a tan. Quite an extreme tan, I know that.”

Tittensor admitted that skin cancer is a concern for her, despite everything.

“Cancer is in my family, and I am probably even more prone to me getting skin cancer. I think it’s just a matter of clearly getting your moles checked,” she told Barcroft Media.

Her friend Ben, who shares her preference for the tanning, claims he is not afraid of any harmful side-effects, because nobody in his family has cancer.

“She’s really dark, but she doesn’t think so,” Rachel said. “Her whole image to deal with uncertainty. Without all that, she is absolutely beautiful.”

According to Bancroft, Tittensor first became addicted after back to come out of 2015 a holiday to Turkey with “amazing tan.” Her brother later introduced her and went to the injections. And despite the fact that someone has an objection, she claims that her tan makes her happy.
