A white German woman, Martina Big, is sending shockwaves through social media by taking drastic measures to transform herself from a white woman to what she perceives to be a black woman.
Martina posted this on Instagram stating: “The only thing that has changed is I just gotten even more beautiful!”
She has had tanning injections to turn her caucasian skin a deep shade of mahogany brown and as she calls it, to change her skin to African dark. White people tanning their skin is not a foreign concept to us, but this takes it to whole new level.
Martina invested thousands of dollars to become her image of a black woman. While this is extreme, undergoing augmentations is nothing new with countless celebrities, most notably the Kardashians, changing their features and bodies to assimilate to a beauty standard and stereotype.
Martina recently posted this on Facebook showing off her new transformation:
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any weirder, Martina announced that her husband is now getting melanin injections in order to change his skin color as well.
Below is a video that includes her talking about her desire to be crispy brown and discussing the injections that cause her skin to get darker.
Back April Martina 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.
“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.
“But now, they have got used to it, they are excited like me. They say, ‘oh, I like your style! Go darker! Go darker!'”
