          Our Clients

          • Ingrids is awesome. I love going before work to get a burst of Vitamin D and a healthy glow! The staff is super friendly, facility is always clean, and the prices aren't too bad either. Only thing missing is a cute girl to help get lotion on my back lol. Highly recommend Ingrids!

          • Ever since moving to the Bay Area, I've been getting less sun than I was used to getting. My Vitamin D was suffering and instead of popping a pill, I decided to go the old fashioned route - sun! The people at Ingrid's were amazing. Super friendly, super knowledgable and concerned with getting what I needed (Vitamin D) without getting what I didn't (sunburn/over-exposure). Everything was ready when I walked in - super clean and they have literally thought of everything!

          • I would give this place 6 stars if I could. I needed to get an airbrushed spray tan for a recent trip to Vegas, and searched around on Yelp before making an appointment. I'm SO glad I went here! The place is extremely clean with a calming atmosphere. The owner discussed color options with me upon arriving and recommended the perfect shade for my skin color. She also went over all the details of how long to wait before showering after the tan, what skin products not to use, etc....
