Top 10 Inked Porn Performers of 2016

In this article, I’m going to spotlight 10 amazing tattooed porn ladies who we at Inked Angels think will have an awesome 2016 in the porn industry.  I take into consideration movies shot in 2015 and how 2016 is starting off for these ladies.  In no particular order, here’s the list…

Romi Rain

Romi Rain Topless White Couch

Boston native, Romi Rain, is a gorgeous inked adult performer, who started her career in 2012. Since then, Romi has taken the adult industry by storm, appearing in over 170 movies. She has been nominated for 11 AVN Awards and 4 Inked Awards, with her taking home the 2015 Inked Female Performer of the Year honor. AVN has also nominated her for the 2016 Female Performer of the Year award. Like most girls that will appear on our list, Romi has shot with all the big name studios in the adult business. Her first movie, “Fit Fucks,” was shot with Penthouse in 2012.

Kleio Valentien

Kleio Valentien Topless Tattoos

Tattooed vixen, Kleio Valentien, hails from the Lonestar state and entered the porn industry in 2007 when she shot “Mardi Gras 2007” for Dreamgirls.  Since then, she has been featured in over 70 movies, shooting for all the big studios like Burning Angel, Wicked Pictures, Evil Angel, Brazzers, Zero Tolerance, Digital Sin, Airerose, and more!  2015 found Kleio in some pretty successful movies such as Burning Angel’s “Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded,” Wicked Pictures’ “Batman v Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody” and “Axel Braun’s Inked.”  Recipient of 5 AVN Award’s nominations, as well as 4 from the Inked Awards, 2016 looks to start off big as she was nominated for and won the coveted AVN Award for Best Supporting Actress as well.

Rachael Madori

Inked babe Rachael Madori was born in Brooklyn, NY and started her career in the adult industry in 2014.  Her first flick was New Sensations’ ‘Brothers and Sisters 3,’ and she has over 45 scenes credited to her.  This tattooed bombshell has been nominated for 4 AVN awards and won the 2015 award for Starlet of the Year in the Inked Awards.  She’s shot with most of the big production companies, from New Sensations to Burning Angel to Evil Angel and many more!  Rachael is quickly rising to the top!

Cali Carter

Cali Carter is another tatted babe quickly rising up in the adult world.  Sacramento, CA is her birthplace and she entered the industry in 2013 when she shot her first film, ‘Amateur Introductions 2,’ with Amateur Allure.  She has 54 scenes credited and has shot with most of the big production companies.  She has been nominated for the Starlet of the Year category in the Inked Awards for three years straight, from 2013-2015.  Cali was also nominated for a 2015 AVN award for the Fan Award: Cutest Newcomer.  I can say firsthand that this chick has the attitude and drive to make it as far as she wants in this industry.  Her charming personality and professionalism are one of the best I’ve personally seen.

Katrina Jade

I don’t think the word ‘no’ is in this next tattooed chick’s vocabulary.  Katrina Jade is one of the naughtiest, sexiest inked babes in the industry today.  Starting her career in 2014 with ‘Beautiful Tits’ by Girlfriends Films, she hasn’t slowed down much since.  Katrina is credited with over 75 scenes to this point.  She has received 4 AVN award nominations and 3 Inked Awards nominations (all coming last year).  She has a sexy, flirty personality and an amazing body to match.  Check out her movies, you won’t regret it!

Kissa Sins

When you think of booty, look no further than tatted babe, Kissa Sins.  Born in Pasadena, CA, she got her start in the adult industry in 2015 when she signed exclusively with Brazzers.  She has since completed her contract with them and recently signed a new exclusive contract with Sins Life.  A company started up by her and her boyfriend, Johnny Sins, she’s looking to grow it since signing a distribution deal with Jules Jordan Video.  2016 could really be her big breakout year!

Anna Bell Peaks

Anna Bell Peaks has taken the adult industry by storm!  This inked babe started her career in 2015, but her popularity has grown faster than just about anyone else who’s entered the business.  It’s pretty fitting that she was born in a town known for the porn business, Chattsworth, CA.  Her latest movie, ‘Thou Shalt Not Print Marks Upon Thee,’ by Pornfidelity has received rave reviews!  In her short time in the industry, she’s appeared in over 25 scenes already.

Sarah Jessie

Inked babe Sarah Jessie started her career in 2006 and has racked up quite a resume, starring in over 100 scenes.  She’s proud to call Las Vegas her home.  Sarah’s received 3 AVN award nominations as well as 1 from the Inked Awards for Feature of the Year, which she took home.  Having shot with all the big companies, this industry veteran shows why she has the longevity in this business with her professional demeanor, the ability to make everyone around her feel relaxed, outgoing personality, and her gorgeous looks.

Skin Diamond

Skin Diamond is a tatted chick who anyone familiar with the porn world would know.  She has appeared in over 360 scenes during her career, which started in 2009.  I don’t think there is any production company out there that she hasn’t shot with yet.  She has been nominated for over 35 AVN awards, won two times for Best Double Penetration Sex Scene (2014) and Best Oral Sex Scene (2014).  Skin also won the Inked Awards 2014 Female Performer of the Year.  Considered one of the top fetish performers in the industry by many.

Joanna Angel

Joanna Angel Topless Hottub

What list of Inked Pornstars would be complete without the queen of inked porn?  Joanna Angel started her career and the top alt porn studio in the business in 2002.  Burning Angel has become the go-to studio for tatted fresh faces and established veterans.  Not only is she the co-founder/owner of Burning Angel, but she also performs in all their movies and takes on the director role as well.  Joanna has been nominated 30 times in different award shows and has taken home the award for AVN’s Best Solo Sex Scene (2012) and Best Pornstar Website (2015), as well the Achievement Award in the 2013 Inked Awards, was inducted into the Inked Awards Hall of Fame (2015) and Burning Angel won the Inked Award’s 2015 Studio of the Year award.  She is one of the biggest, if not *the* biggest, driving forces that’s bringing alt porn to the more mainstream fans.  Joanna and Burning Angel had a big year with their release of the well received “Ronda ArouseMe: Grounded and Pounded,” so make sure to watch out for more from this awesome performer, director, and business woman!
