Sunburn tattoo art is the latest and most dangerous fashion trend hitting social media.

The art is created by placing stencils on your body and covering the stencil with sunscreen before exposing the rest of your body to dangerous UV rays.

Photos of the sunburnt patterns created on the skin, which mimic tattoos, are popping up all over social media.

Doctors say this trend is not cute or very funny.

The burns could be dangerous and potentially deadly, with skin cancer cases on the rise.
