Turning one's forearms over during tanning or extended time in the sunlight, in order to better tan the pale backs of one's forearms. This technique was created to also help prevent sunburn on one's forearms. The performer takes on a pose similar to that of Jesus on the cross.
Observer: "Why are you holding your arms like that?"

Performer: "I'm Jesus tanning! Burnt forearms are the devil's work!"
