Is it normal to still be able to see sunburn/tan lines, a year after the fact? I don't go out in the sun much and I'm the type who doesn't tan, only burns. Last May (2004) I got a really bad sunburn on my back and you could see the lines where it didn't burn due to my swimsuit top. Well, I can still see the pattern on my back and I haven't set foot in the sun since then, much less worn that swimsuit. What the hell? It's not even tan, it's just red and white skin.
