The owner of the salon where Tanning Mom allegedly scorched her 5-year-old's skin plans to fight $5,200 in fines levied by the local health department -- TMZ has learned.

The Department of Health and Senior Services in Nutley, NJ announced today ... it's fining City Tropics Tanning for violations including consumer overexposure and misusing sunlamp equipment.

According to the health department, inspectors discovered the salon's customers were exceeding the legal weekly limit for UV exposure.

But City Tropics owner Anthony Ruccatano tells TMZ he's refusing to pay -- and wants to take the health department to court over the fine.

Ruccatano insists his business never broke the law and wants a judge to dismiss the fine entirely.

Calls to the health department weren't returned.

it's not bad enough that her skin color is that of an Oompa Loompa, but what the hell is on her lips??? Looks like she dopped them in bacon lard. Is that supposed to be lipstick or something??

All the Health Dept. has to do is present tanning mom in court as Exhibit A. Case closed.

What's that white stuff on this ladies lips? It looks like that stuff lifeguards used to put on their nose and lips in the '60...'s, way before modern SPF was invented. Somebody should clue Tanning Mom in to the fact that she can now buy invisible sunscreen. No need for white Nosecoat any more you dumbazz lady.
