In addition to various health and skin care motivations, Ellen DeGeneres reminded viewers recently why it’s best not to drift into a semi-aware state while basking in the sun’s rays: you can get some wild tan lines.

Viewers sent in their photos showing everything from the intricate patterns their swimsuits left behind to the outline of a spoon left on someone’s lap (she said she had fallen asleep eating a bowl of ice cream).

There were also a few instances of terribly-applied sunscreen.

Check out some of the most unfortunate sunburn photos, below:
