Don't mind the messy bedhead, lol just want to know if I should bother trying to tan, or if the pale skin is fitting. Since my skin is so fair it's really hard to actually get a tan going..

Tan girls definitely looks good, but I would never recommend a girl to "go tanning". Natural tan is one thing, but baking yourself to look darker than you are is not good in my opinion. You were made the way you were made... and it's just perfect. If you're a pale girl, then so be it. From your picture, you have an insanely pretty face, and tanning would only hurt your skin over time.
It's amazing to me how many girls I've seen go tanning (and they DO look good), but 10 years later, they are all spotted up, wrinkled, etc. A pale girl that doesn't tan will still have that perfect skin down the road. It's just not worth it to look "tan" for a short period of time until it catches up with you.
So... my opinion is no. You are gorgeous, and there's NO reason to mess with that.1

I feel you. I also have a super pale skin and can't tan. Luckily there are not a lot of guys who think it's a turn-off. Most won't care and some even prefer it.
I wouldn't recommend to tan though. It's way too risky since you burn really fast and skin cancer can always be lurking around.
Fake tan is also not an option. On a super pale skin it would just look orange.
Accept your skin how it is. Maybe you'll get some female haters (coming from experience), but being pale is just a part of you.1
