CARVING IT OUT: The latest tanning innovation makes going to gym superfluous. The completely bare spa is now offering the Sculpted Tan, a tan created by an airbrush that defines muscles anywhere on the body just by keeping a finger on the trigger of the tanning gun. Technicians have been trained by a professional body painter to get the chiseling techniques perfect. The Sculpted Tan begins with a complete spray-on tan, followed by the accenting. Tans are designed to last four to six days, but sculpted areas may stay on longer, as they are darker. The Sculpted Tan is $68 per session and is available at completely bare downtown, 103 Fifth Avenue.
