The world’s two most famous tattooed porn stars take the spotlight of Inked magazine’s September Sex Issue, available now.
2014 AVN Female Performer of the Year Bonnie Rotten serves as one of the issue’s two alternate cover models.
The other cover being rap artist Machine Gun Kelly, who happens to have been the featured musical act at the AVN Awards Show the same year.
The accompanying profile traces Rotten’s rise to porn superstardom as well as the history of her body art, all while documenting her TMZ-broadcast stroll through New York City topless.Inside the issue, BurningAngel founder and recently announced 2016 AVN Awards co-host Joanna Angel appears as the focal point of a layout she also directed portraying a BA backyard barbecue.
Of her piece, shot by Christian Saint, Rotten told AVN, “Being on the cover of Inked is awesome! We had a really fun shoot followed by me running around topless in NYC the next day.
I’m super happy with how the photos turned out — they show a very fun, playful side of myself, and I have been getting a big response from fans that like the cover.”
Angel’s spread, photographed by Bradley Meinz, aims to “capture the essence of a BurningAngel party through candid photos,” Angel explained.
The feature depicts her as the host of the shindig, surrounded by BA family members Jessie Lee, Ophelia Rain, Lily Lane, Vera Drake, Necro Nicki, Romance, Veronica Layke, Skin Diamond, Sheena Rose, Sammie Six, Kelsi Lynn, Small Hands, Xander Corvus, Michael Vegas, Wolf Hudson and Juanito Blanco.
“It was a lot of fun to spend time with the beautiful girls (and guys) I have filmed over the years, from Jessie Lee and Skin Diamond to newbies on BurningAngel like Sammie Six and Kelsi Lynn.”
Inked editor-in-chief Rocky Rakovic, who called the BA shoot a “magical experience,” divulged that when planning the annual Sex Issue, he “called my top staff members into our conference room. I told them to close their eyes, picture a tattooed porn star and tell me the first name that came to mind. The first three said, ‘Joanna Angel.'”
Rakovic continued, “Not only is Joanna Angel on the ‘hall pass’ list of most Inked readers — guys and dolls — our community looks to her to curate the best in adult entertainment targeted toward the tattooed scene. How appealing are the photos? We had trouble culling them down and ran over 40 in this issue. This feature has more images than any that we published in the past three years.”
