About Tina Louise
By her looks, you’d never guess that Tina Louise grew up a tomboy in rural Australia. The blond bombshell is a social media maven, amounting more than 1.5 million Instagram followers and making her mark in the modeling world.
Tina grew up in a three-bedroom cottage in the Australian countryside with six other family members. She enjoyed camping, climbing trees, picking blackberries, raising chickens, and tending to their vegetable garden as a child. Her family relocated to a bigger area when Tina was 15, and she “went from being a tomboy and grew into being a young woman, and that’s when I began learning about fashion and beauty,” she told website Eden Knows Implants.
She was discovered at age 21 by a photographer who took a few shots of her that ended up on the cover of Maxim. She then won the title of Australia’s Hottest Bikini Model at age 25. Tina has landed covers for other magazines, including FHM and Zoo Weekly.
The heavily tattooed beauty got her first ink at age 18, but she didn’t get her second tattoo—a cross to remind her that God is most important in her life—until 27. She didn’t start work on her sleeves until after she moved to the United States. She first fell in love with the California weather and beaches while visiting for a modeling gig. She then realized that tattooed models are more acceptable in America. “I’ve always loved tattoos, but in Australia you are limited on what you can do, so I always restrained myself from getting more,” she told Inked Magazine. “Now I book more jobs being a tattooed model then I did when I had none.”
Tina’s signature tattooed figure is the highlight of her Instagram account, where she divulges peeks into her life to numerous followers. “For me, Instagram is my full-time job. I book all my modeling work from there,” she told Inked. She credits the social media site with growing her career and showcasing her talent because she is “not your average model.”
Although she has a bangin’ bod, Tina is virtually a stranger to the workout arena. She told Galore magazine that her secrets to her fantastic figure include light exercise (yoga twice a week and 30 minutes of walking three times a week), de-stressing, and eating healthy—with the occasional cheat day featuring pizza and ice cream floats.
