Welcome to the latest fashion fad in beauty-obsessed Rio de Janeiro, where some women are sunbaking in bikinis made of black tape in search of tan lines so perfect that they practically jump off the skin.Next go the strips of electrical tape to mimic a bikini.Using sticky tape instead of a cloth bikini ensures crisp lines that stay just so.Holding black electrical tape and scissors, beauty salon owner Erika Martins instructed a woman to stay still while she carefully placed tape between her buttocks where the bikini would have gone.Today, Martins' rooftop fits 30 women and is at full capacity seven days a week, as long as the sun is out.
