The Story of Tina
This is Tina, she was born in one the smallest village on a tiny island in The Netherlands. During the daytime she is an estheticienne. At night, next to having plain sex for cash, she takes care of her colleauges by tidying up their appearance. Tina likes to shave eyebrows off, cut long hair short and she loves pushing hair coloration to it’s limits. She is the most flamboyant person you’ll ever meet, by Dutch standards that is. Tina is the best example of a Dutch souvenir-girl.
Powder Box Girls
Tina is part of the Powder Box Girls; a series of statuettes accompanied by their own short story created by Mimi Berlin. The Powder Box Girls are girls of pleasure with double jobs. Working during the day is very important to them, oddly enough without these jobs they couldn’t work the night.
