VENICE, CA — Bonnie Rotten is sending a message to the adult industry this week that she is dead serious about her career by adding Rising Star PR to her arsenal, freeing her up to spend her time focusing on the little things her publicists can’t do, like modeling and performing for the camera.

Rotten got her start as a model working car and motorcycle shows in the Midwest. She was a spokesmodel and poster model who traveled the US working at auto and bike industry shows, quickly becoming a popular pin-up. She participated in competitions and she broke the mold as a tattooed model.

Then she started pushing the envelope.

At 18, she got her start working in dance clubs, becoming an advanced pole dancer and performing in more than 20 cities before deciding to give work as an adult model/performer a try.

A close look at her tattoos reveals that she is a fan of horror movies (her knuckles read “CAMP BLUD,” which is a reference to Friday the 13th). She also has reverences to several other movies and characters, including Frank Sinatra on her right thigh for good measure. She is also a huge football fan, more than curious about sexual fetishes and the owner of B-movie figures, ‘70s and ‘80s slasher films and memorabilia.

Rotten has worked with fetish specialists Dungeoncorp, and Ken Marcus, as well as New Sensations, Evil Angel, Brazzers and Diabolic.
