ABOUT INKED ANGELS
Inked Angels start was born in January of 2011. Jason Jones and his best friend featured inked girls from both the porn and cam worlds. One later, music spotlights were added, featuring music from some of the best current rock bands and in 2013 live concert reviews and musician interviews were added. Next, sex toy reviews, Feature of the Month and DVD Spotlight sections were added. The next piece of the puzzle was the addition of industry veteran, Bill Snyder (aka Bill The Hobbyist) joining Inked Angels, and he started a new DVD review section.
2013 was the start of Inked Angels participating in conventions with Exxxotica Atlantic City and the RVA Expo. And this November, they will be turning to Exxxotica and Inked Angels will have a booth in Edison, NJ.
