Paasche Quick Application Airbrush Tanning Kit with Quiet Compressor

The Paasche Quick Application Airbrush Tanning Kit provides users with the fastest spray tanning results, allowing for full coverage in less than 5 minutes.  Manufactured in Chicago, Illinois, this spray gun provides the American made quality expected of the Paasche line, with a D200R compressor for optimal results in spraying.  The Tanning Gun that comes with this unit features a 5-inch spraying pattern, allowing for faster application times.  The compressor features a regulator, allowing for precise control of spraying pressure.

What’s in the Box

This Paasche Tanning Kit comes with everything you need to get started with spray tanning.  The system comes complete with spray gun, pressure cup, D200R compressor with regulator, a 10 foot hose, and a 32 ounce bottle of Paasche’s 10% DHA Leisure Tan spray, which is enough solution for up to 11 spray tan applications.  The entire system is small, yet provides accuracy and precision that is unsurpassed when compared with similar units available.


The Paasche Quick Application Airbrush Tanning Kit with Quiet Compressor features a small yet powerful compressor that produces very little noise when in use.  The system features an easy to clean process that cuts down on clean up time, and provides exceptionally fast tanning applications.

The Paasche Quick Application Airbrush Tanning Kit measures only 14 inches by 14 inches by 12 inches for convenient storage.  The tanning sprayer has a 5 inch spray pattern, which allows for a complete spray tan application in five minutes or less depending on the user.  The included compressor provides the perfect air pressure for even application, without the unwanted noise seen with larger compressor options.  This makes this unit a great option for salons who need a system that allows for quick applications with little fuss.  Clean up for this system only requires hot water, which is simply sprayed through the unit until the mist is clear of all tanning solution.

My Experience (2019 update)

We reviewed this product a few years ago, but it has such great performance that I simply must say something more about it. My wife was complaining constantly about the spray tan she gets at different salons. I love her, but I really couldn’t listen to that crap any more. So, to try to make her happy I bought her this airbrush tanning kit with a quiet compressor. It crossed my mind that the features might lie and the compressor is noisy, but I’d rather listen to it than to her whining.

It was definitely worth the risk! To my surprise, she was pleased and a happy wife means a happy life. She tried it right away and got the most amazing even tan! Even I was shocked! After the initial shock passed, I noticed some air leaks on the hose connections but fixed it with a little enclosed tape. This is something that appears frequently on new airbrush compressors, so no need to worry.

The metal spray gun is well built and has a wide spray pattern which lets you finish the tanning in 5-10 minutes. The gun is a bit heavy but luckily the tanning session is done quickly. After all you can’t expect that a metal gun is light. Beside the refill cup, there are no plastic parts on this Paasche unit.

Oh, and the noise, well I think my electric razor makes more noise than this compressor. I help my wife with the cleaning after every usage and always test the compressor before tanning. Frankly, after a few years it is still doing its magic.

Paasche was not a big name in the tanning industry, but we gave it a chance and it didn’t fail us. Paasche Quick Application Airbrush Tanning Kit gives professional results and is a system that is easy to use. So, I recommend that you make your wife happy as I did mine.

This Airbrush Tanning Kit with Quiet Compressor provides an easy to use, quiet system that gives great spray tanning results.  The larger spray pattern coupled with the included compressor regulator provides exceptional results in nearly any situation, and allows users to have professional results – regardless of whether they are using the unit at home or in a professional salon.  The long 10 foot hose provides great maneuverability, without having to move the compressor around while using it.  Overall, this spray tanning system is a perfect example of the quality, craftsmanship, and affordability that the Paasche Company is known for in their airbrush products and accessories.
