TOP 10 INKED PORN PERFORMERS OF 2017

We’re back for our 2nd annual “Top 10 Inked Performers” article and this year’s list has some familiar faces and some new faces as well!  We’ve taken into consideration what kind of year the ladies had in 2016, as well as how 2017 is starting off. Awards received are another factor and we consulted with many reviewers from the industry to comprise our list.  So, in no particular order, here’s Inked Angels’ Top 10 Inked Performers of 2017…

Kleio Valentien

Tattooed babe Kleio Valentien is probably one of the hottest inked performers in the industry after coming off her “Best Actress” AVN Award for her role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.  Suicide Squad XXX also took home the AVN Award for “Best Art Direction,” “Best Parody,” “Movie of the Year,” “Best Three-Way Sex Scene – Boy/Boy/Girl and a few others.  She also collected a few awards at the 2016 Inked Awards for “Best Ink” and “Girl/Girl Scene of the Year” for Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded, all while hosting the event.  She joined the industry in 2007 and has more than 129 scenes to her credit.

Holly Hendrix

Holly Hendrix, the AVN Award winner for “Starlet of the Year” at the 34th annual ceremony is next up on our list.  She also won an AVN award for “Most Outrageous Sex Scene” and took home the “Best Anal” award at the 2016 Inked Awards.  Holly started her career in 2015 and has more than 66 scenes credited to her.

Anna Bell Peaks

Probably one of the hardest working performers in the adult industry is the gorgeous Anna Bell Peaks.  2016 was her breakout year, claiming two awards at the Inked Awards for “Best Model Website” and “Starlet of the Year.”  Anna Bell is always on the go, whether she’s feature dancing somewhere in the US, attending conventions to get up close and personal with her fans, or shooting new scenes.  She started her career in 2015 and has over 66 scenes credited to her.

Katrina Jade

Next up is the tatted babe, Katrina Jade. Katrina is the 2017 Xbiz Award winner for “Performer of the Year” as well as the 2017 AVN Award winner in the “Best Group Sex Scene category.  She has been in the industry since 2014 and has appeared in over 134 scenes along the way.

Marley Brinx

Marley Brinx seemed to be in every movie I checked out in 2016 and has appeared in over 119 scenes since she started her career in 2015.  She was nominated in the 2017 AVN Awards for “Best Anal Sex Scene” and “Best Three-Way Sex Scene: G/G/B” but unfortunately wasn’t able to walk away with either.  I have a feeling there will be many more nominations and wins in this gorgeous inked lady’s near future!

Romi Rain

The 2015 and 2016 Inked Awards “Female Performer of the Year” winner, Romi Rain, is next up on our list.  Her DVD, “Deadly Rain” released by Brazzers also won “Best Group Scene” and “DVD of the Year” in the 2016 Inked Awards.  Romi attended her first Exxxotica (New Jersey) convention in 2016 where she met large crowds of her fans.  Since starting her career in 2012 she has appeared in over 268 scenes.

Keisha Grey

Next up is Keisha Grey, one of the winners of the 2017 AVN Award for the “Best Group Sex Scene award, an award she also took home in 2016.  Starting her career in 2013, she has over 265 scenes under her belt and there doesn’t seem to be slowing this woman down as she’s appeared in 12 scenes already in 2017!

Cali Carter

Next up is the 2016 Inked Awards winner for “Best Oral,” that’s right, the stunning Cali Carter!  Besides signing on to be Archangel’s next contract star, Cali Carter also released her first performer showcase movie “Cali Carter is the Archangel.”  Since starting her career in 2013 she has appeared in over 96 scenes!

Joanna Angel

2017 started off with a bang for the alt-porn queen, Joanna Angel, as she won her first individual AVN award at the 2017 ceremony for “Best Supporting Actress.”  No “Top 10 Inked Performer” list would be complete without this amazing woman who started her career in 2005 and has appeared in over 262 scenes!  She was also one of the first people inducted into the Inked Awards Hall of Fame in 2015.  Can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store for her and her company, Burning Angel!

Kissa Sins

The winner in the “Best Ass” category in the 2016 Inked Awards was the gorgeous Kissa Sins and she rounds out our Top 10 list.  She also recently took home the award in the 2017 AVN Awards for “Web Queen” and was nominated for “Favorite Female Porn Star.”  This bubbly babe started her career in the adult industry in 2015 and has made big moves since then, like starting her own production company, Sins Life.  She has also appeared in over 23 scenes, with many more to come!

So there you have it, Inked Angels’ Top 10 Inked Performers of 2017.  It’s never easy to try to narrow down a large pool of exceptional tattooed ladies from the industry but I did it as fair as I could.  Below is a list of honorable mentions, ladies who are newer to the industry that we have our eye on or ladies who just barely missed making the list…

Honorable mentions…

Leigh Raven, Charlotte Satre, Amber Ivy, Edyn Blair, Elsa Jean, Alexa Nova, Anna de Ville, and Felicity Feline.
