It's a personal choice. I don't mind my pale skin most of the time, but sometimes, in summer if I'm wearing a dress to a special event, I like to use a fake tan cream to give my legs a bit of a glow (it usually saves me from having to wear stockings).
of course it's okay, you can do what you want, but boy is it a stupid thing to do and rather sad. to me it says a lot about how you probably feel about yourself ;-(
no it isn't.people need to be proud of the unique way God made them. changing your skin colour will make you get skin diseases.so if you are dark be dark and proud.people have a misconception in our black communities that light skinned women are more beautiful than dark skinned ones. but is that really always the case

As for darkening as long as you are wearing the necessary lotion with protection daily there should be know reason why one should not be able to enjoy a great tan!
As for spray tans I have never tried one but I know a lot of people who have with no issues
