While most African will do anything to tone their skins to remain white, this
German glamour model says she wants to look African dark and therefore unveiled her extreme mahogany skin tone after having three tanning injections.
Martina Big, from Trier, Germany, gained notoriety after having a ‘blow-up boob job’ that pumped her chest to an incredible size 32S.
The 28-year-old ex-air hostess now has no plans to curb her tanning addiction and admits she is still using the 50-tube sunbed that is installed in her home so she can look darker.
Martina, who stunned viewers with her appearance on This Morning today, said: “Nine weeks ago, I had just three tanning injections.
“I was not expecting to go so dark but it worked so well. I love it and I really want to push it to the extreme.
“Now I just want to get darker and darker and see what the limits are. I love the contrast of my bright blonde hair and my dark, crispy brown skin.”
Martina loves seeing the reaction of people in the street to her bold look.
“I can see their big eyes when I walk past and their shocked faces, thinking ‘how is this possible?’” she said.
“At first, my fans were irritated, saying ‘why did you do this?!” but that is because they have never seen a white girl change her skin to African dark before.
“I’m going to create a unique and exotic Barbie with dark tan, bright blonde hair and exaggerated curves. I like this look.”
Martina said she’s not trying to change her race and describes the extreme tan as just a part of her quest to become the “ultimate real-life Barbie bimbo”.
Friends of Martina have been surprised by her decision and she admits even the doctor that administered the injections – whom she will not name – did not recognise her.
Martina began modifying her body in 2012 after her boyfriend, Michael, encouraged her to start modelling.
Initially, she had planned to have surgeries to enhance her bust and lips but she soon found herself addicted to changing her body in the extreme.
To date, Martina has spent more than £50,000 on cosmetic surgeries and procedures.
Her boyfriend Michael is supportive and has also had a course of tanning injections.
He said: “I didn’t want to go quite as dark as Martina but I support her and like her new look very much.
“It is a great feeling for me to have Martina by my side. I am the boyfriend of the woman with the largest breasts in Europe!
