Think tattoos are sexy? Want to know who the hottest tattooed pornstars are?
People get tattoos for plenty of reasons, from rebellion and self-expression to identifying as part of a group or as a display of some personal narrative.
Once associated with being a criminal or as deviant, tattoos are increasingly becoming more commonplace. However, some people still see inks as ‘cheap’, ’trashy’ or ‘unprofessional’.
In the world of porn they have been around for decades from the ubiquitous ‘star’ to full sleeves, these days the more you have, the more often you are linked to the world of alternative porn and kinky content
Whatever you think about tattoos, we’ve found some of the hottest inked porn stars around.
Tattoos and Porn
Tattoos and porn seem to go hand in hand these days with lots of performers sporting at least one or two inks.
Since the early 1980s, a star over the ankle or a rose on the ass have been pretty common. However, the last decade has seen an increase in the number of porn stars who have tattoos and the skin art on display is getting more elaborate as studios celebrate altporn.
As a sign of a rebellious character, the stars of adult films are the perfect candidates to have had some skin art done but are they actually popular with audiences?
Each year, the adult content giants over at Pornhub run analysis on global porn viewing trends and, in 2019, the search term ‘tattooed women’ was the third most popular gaining category. Interest in clips tagged with these keywords increased year on year by 85%! This follows a rise in interest the previous year of 88%.
Tattoos in Modern Culture
Few things can polarize opinion more than tattoos and people are either firmly in one camp or the other when it comes to skin art; you either love ‘em or hate ‘em!
Dating back centuries, attitudes about tattoos have vacillated between these two extremes. From early tribal and ritualistic associations which supposedly bonded societies to using ink as a way to mark criminals out in China they have often been divisive.
Western society has long associated tattoos with naval traditions and as a novelty in circuses. Often crudely done (sometimes practiced by schoolboys in an amateurish way), inking began to garner gentrification across Europe in the latter half of the 19th century. With upmarket and expensive techniques becoming fashionable, it is estimated that one in five members of the upper classes had a tattoo during this era.
The 20th century saw the rise of the electric tattoo machine to the masses which meant that more people could get better skin art and by the 1960s the tattoo was seeing a renaissance. From unrefined tags to sophisticated artistry, inking started to become more mainstream.
These days there are still two camps; people who view them in a negative way often feel that they signify individuals as being anti-social, ‘ungodly’, trashy and weird. In surveys, most associate them with people who are defiant of society and who are reckless.
Others see tattoos as cool and fashionable and view the people who have them as liberal, adventurous and creative.
A study by Psychology Today revealed that people who choose to get inked are most likely to be ‘experience seekers’…little wonder then that pornstars and tattoos are inextricably linked with them.
- The most common place for men to have a tattoo is across their back or shoulders whilst for women it is on the ankle.
- More women than men regret their tattoos but the most commonly cited reason for that regret is having the name of someone else inked on your skin.
- According to one survey, the most popular tattoos are of women followed by hearts and angels.
- The first Playboy centerfold to show a visible tattoo on her shoot was Star Stowe (February 1977).
- Mattel launched a special edition Barbie which sported a butterfly tattoo across her abdomen. It was controversial with parents and was later withdrawn.
- Billy Gibby, known as the Human Billboard, sold his face for advertising when he had the website addresses and logos of several XXX companies tattooed on his face. Famously this included Pornhub, Homemade Videos and Dr Freak.
Popularity of Tattoos
According to data collected by Compare Camp, more than one in three US citizens aged 18-29 have a tattoo compared to just 11% in the age range 50-64. Across all ages, 46% of Americans have at least one piece of skin art. And, in one survey undertaken in 2012, more women than men in the US were getting tattooed; 59% versus just 41% of men!
Right across the Western world, the trends are similar with inks being most popular in:
- Italy – 48% of respondents have at least one tattoo
- Sweden – 47% of respondents have at least one tattoo
- Australia – 43% of respondents have at least one tattoo
- Argentina – 43% of respondents have at least one tattoo
- Spain – 42% of respondents have at least one tattoo
- United Kingdom 40% of respondents have at least one tattoo
So, with over two in five individuals being tattooed these days its little wonder that we see so many porn stars sporting skin art. After all, there’s nowhere to hide them on a XXX shoot.
Top 12 Tattooed Female Pornstars
In our choice of the hottest adult stars with skin art, we’ve had to draw the line somewhere so, for us, ‘tattooed’ means multiple inks.

Ranked in the top 65 most viewed pornstars in America, Christy Mack was originally an erotic model for specialist tattoo magazines such as Inked Girls and Rebel Ink. At the age of 21 (in 2012) she started working in the porn industry, debuting with some of the big studios including BangBros, Brazzers and Evil Angel. Since then she has featured in more than 250 titles including some parody movies.
Though she retired from the industry after just three years she is still active in the adult entertainment markets and remains a popular performer across tube sites. Well known for hardcore scenes (and facial shots) she has earned many award nominations but, to date, hasn’t taken any of the big ones home.
Ink-wise, she has plenty to show off including a her abdomen, left arm sleeve and across her back/torso. She also tats on her hands, left calf, right thigh and her neck.
Prolific as she was, there are lots of titles to catch her in where she shines but her work on Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody (2012), Trashy (2013) and I Am Christy Mack (2013) are pretty damn good.
Born in Atlanta, GA in 1985, Bella Bellz is of mixed Italian and Native American descent (Cherokee). She is ranked in the top 25 porn stars by video views (XVideos) worldwide and has worked with all the main US studios including Evil Angel, Brazzers, BangBros and Ass Parade.

She didn’t win any industry awards during her career in porn but she was nominated for several awards including Most Epic Ass (AVN 2016) and Best Ass (Inked 2018).
As far as tattoos go, she is immediately identifiable by the huge dragon design which covers her back but she also has inks on her buttocks, and arms as well as on her neck.
In our opinion some of her best work can be seen in the Jules Jordan Video scenes shot for Brother Load 7 (2015) for which she was also nominated for Best Solo/Tease performance at the 2016 AVN Awards. With her best asset being her ass, it is also worth checking out:

- Anal Sweetness 2 (2014)
The original Punk Rock Princess, Joanna Angel is one of the best-known tattooed porn stars despite only being ranked as the 612th most viewed porn star in the world (XVideos).
Part of this recognition is due to the majority of her roles being through mainstream studios such as Digital Playground Dogfart, MOFOS, Brazzers and Wicked Pictures.
However, it is also because she has been a prolific performer which has helped her gain so much attention. According to the IAFD, Angel has notched up more than 1,100 credits including over 600 as a director!
Winner of the AltPorn Female Performer of the Year award 2019 an inductee of the AVN and Inked Halls of Fame, she has been nominated for, and won, multiple gongs over her fifteen years on the circuit.
Now more of a familiar face behind the camera than in front of it and, at 39 year’s old, Angel runs her own adult website, Burning Angel. Featuring the ‘very best of punk rock porn’, she focuses on showcasing adult movie stars who are edgy and alternative.
As for her own look, she sports a number of ink designs on her body including:
- Pink ribbons on both thighs
- Diamonds on each pelvic bone
- Knife through hear on her inner right calk
- Flaming skull on her left bicep
- A skull on her right shoulder
- A Venus flytrap on her right forearm with words “Touch me and you shall burn“
We think that Joanna Angel deserves to be our number one choice of hottest tattooed porn stars, not least because she is a sexy woman but because she is a champion for inked XXX performers.
With so many shoots to choose from, we’ve had a tough time shortlisting her best works but these have all been nominated for, or won, awards:
- Joanna Angel and James Deen’s Summer Vacation (2010)
- Joanna Angel: Ass-Fucked (2011)
- Joanna Angel Filthy Whore (2012)
- All About That Orgy (2015)

Born in Queens, NY in 1976, Pistol (now 44) has been in the porn industry since 2005 after a meeting with Joanna Angel led to him being the first male performer on Burning Angel.

Real name Aramis Sartorio, he is another man of firsts becoming the first man to host the AVN awards in 2015.
Pistol has enjoyed some crossover fame and has had minor roles in movies which include Jurassic City (2015) and Frankie in Bunderland.
As you’d imagine for someone who has filmed thousands of porn movies, he has worked with pretty much every pornstar going as well as produced content with most of the major studios. Obviously he still works with Joanna Angel but also provides regular performances with Pervcity, Evil Angel, Pure Taboo and Deviant Hardcore.
Ranked in the top 200 male pornstars worldwide, he is identifiable by his many tattoos which he has been adding to over the years.
His most infamous ones are the cross he has on his right pectorals, crossed chainsaws on the left hand side of his torso and the outline of an elephant on his right hand torso. Additional designs include a hand of cards with the ace of spades uppermost on his right shoulder as well as a female figure incorporated into a sleeve on his left arm.
His work can be found on all the main tube sites as well as through Burning Angel and we can recommend some of the parody movies which he is famed for.
Performer of the Year at the AltPorn and XCritic (2018), 2019 XRCO and 2020 AVN awards, Small Hands has got to be our choice of top tattooed male porn star.
With more than 730 performer credits to his name, Aaron Thompson’s adult industry career started back in 2013. Dubbed ‘Small Hands’ due to his (relatively) tiny mitts, he is married to one of our other hot tattooed porn stars, Joanna Angel.

Thompson has worked with most of the big names in the industry including Brazzers, Reality Kings and Evil Angel but of course some of his finest performances have come for his wife’s website, Burning Angel.
The pair regularly team up on their content and the site has some sizzling movies. He has also worked with other inked female performers from our list including Gia Dimarco and Ivy Lebelle.
At 5’ 9” and with small hands, he isn’t a huge guy but he the key to his success is his energy and versatility. Working primarily in the fetish and altporn scenes, he is popular with co-stars and on the circuits.
