THE STORY OF HER LEFT HALF SLEEVE: “It’s the Sunset Strip, mid-apocalypse. It’s not quite finished, but Stacy Hill at Evolved Bodyart in Columbus, OH, is getting there. I’ve wanted it since I was, like, 10 years old. I’ve always been super influenced by Mo?tley Cru?e and ’80s Hollywood metal.”
WHAT SHE BRINGS TO THE INDUSTRY: “I’m definitely the only androgynous, real lesbian with tattoos in mainstream porn.”
THOUGHTS ON THE JOB: “I get to parade around as the only out, rock ’n’ roll lesbian who bangs hot chicks for a living. That is a whole lot of everything I love and stand for.”
NEXT JOB: “A sex educator—I’ll get there before I wrinkle.”
OUTLOOK ON THE INDUSTRY: “There really are girls and guys in this industry who do it for more than money or fame. It’s become a really fun and positive thing in life, and I always look forward to going to work, and I can’t say that about any other job I’ve had!”

WORKS WITH: Penthouse films, Jules Jordan, and Elegant Angel The story of her arm tattoos: “The skulls and roses show that I have overcome a lot of trials and tribulations in my life and I have become strong. I have bloomed like a beautiful rose. They were done by Chris Cap at Poker’s Tattoo in Las Vegas.”
WHAT SHE BRINGS TO THE INDUSTRY: “I feel that I am very intriguing. I am not a size 0, I have tits, ass, a gorgeous face, and great skills.”
IF SHE WEREN’T IN PORN: “[I’d be] a saxophonist, coroner, or photographer.” Stage name origin: “Someone told me I look like the actress Tatyana Ali, and I came up with the Foxx part because I think foxes are sly, cunning, and beautiful—plus, this old guy told me I am a fox.”
TURN-ONS: “A goatee, some nice, manly hands—no nail biters—good personal hygiene, somewhat of a nice body, a sense of humor, and a job.”

ATTITUDE AT WORK: “I just bring a natural body and my pervy attitude—and I don’t detract from my beliefs to make a buck.”

FAVORITE TATTOO: “On my left arm is a little cat that my best friend, Veronica Ricci, drew for me when we were about 7. I got it tattooed by Brandon Bracamonte at Fallen Angel in Citrus Heights, CA, on her birthday one year. She was so shocked and surprised that I had saved it all these years.”
IS THE JOB HARDER THAN IT LOOKS? “Have you ever tried the pile driver position? I get excited every time I see a bed on a set—hello, normal!”
TURN-ONS: “Long walks on the beach, and Lionel Richie… just kidding! Good-looking men with tattoos, for starters. I like people who are deep, who can be entertaining, and who make me laugh. I am mostly attracted to a person’s soul.”

ACCOLADES: Eight nominations for awards, including AVN’s 2013 Starlet of the Year, which she calls “a huge honor, being seven months into the industry and covered in tattoos”
FIRST TATTOO: “I named him Henry. He is a large zombie on my stomach from Night of the Living Dead: The Beginning comic series. Kevin Combs in Cincinnati did it over almost 13 hours.”
MOTTO: “If you ain’t sinnin’ you ain’t winnin!,” a creed embodied on her left foot in a hillbilly devil by artist Nick Solomon

BEST FILM: Jessie Lee’s Girls’ Night Out
MOST RECOGNIZABLE PLACE: “My friend Clamore Wolfmeyer at Black Label Tattoo in Frederick, MD, did the tattoo on the side of my neck. It’s a rose inside the mouth of a skull. My other favorite is the camera on my hand, which was by Erich Foster over at Rise Above Tattoo, in Buffalo, NY.”
IF SHE WEREN’T IN PORN: “I’d probably still be working at a coffee shop. I was at Starbucks for a few years before I started doing porn.”
TURN-ONS: “I’m really attracted to heavily tattooed guys, and I love passionate sex. Seriously, pick me up, throw me around, and dominate me. That’s the best. … I actually practice the moves that I love on film with my partners.”
