Cast: Bonnie Rotten, Mick Blue, Sarah Jessie, Erik Everhard, Bailey Blue, Manuel Ferrara, Dana Vespoli, Christy Mack
Length: 138:57 minutes
Date of Production: 3/24/2013 (cover); 3/23/2013 (credits)
Extras: The best related extra for me was the 16:40 minute Behind the Scenes feature, the bulk of material amounting to some minor clips from the making of the show. The other extras included some spam, trailers, a cumshot recap, and a photogallery.
Audio/Video Quality: Hot Body Ink was presented in a crisp 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color as released by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel. The camera work was great with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows and the picture appeared to be crisp this time. Nutsack has proven himself time and again as to being able to provide the best looking porn regardless of format, his technical expertise lying in keeping it simple rather than using fancy camera systems only to use gels and filters to fuck up the results as others do. I saw no compression artifacts and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of her work these days tends to do. The editing was pretty solid too, no major errors noticed which is surprising given how many of the competition have recently dropped the ball in this area. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases.
Body of Review: Elegant Angel has hit some tough times of late, losing their all star lineup of top notch directors like William H. Nutsack. Whether the company survives these troubles or not, they will always be able to say they enjoyed a second renaissance comparable to their early successes, though titles like Hot Body Ink, really seemed designed to cater to a much more limited fanboy audience than the various “Wet” series or other flagship offerings. The idea behind this one was to collect five suitable ladies covered in body ink for fans, pairing them up with high end male talent and doing a lot of hardcore fucking after the usual tease. With Dana Vespoli, Christy Mack, and Bonnie Rotten likely to trip the easily tripped trigger of the aforementioned fanboy crowd, I also had to give some credit to Bailey Blue and Sarah Jessie for providing some sexual contrast, more than half of the ladies engaging in anal sex if that is your thing. Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Bonnie Rotten, the impossibly inked brunette featured on the front cover, was up first in a scene with studly Mick Blue, the gal praised by the people involved in making the scene for her anal action. She teased in her skimpy black cover outfit, losing the booty shorts and tiny panties as quickly as she tossed her bra to give quite a tease performance. Her snatch was shaven and as lean as she was, she was also flexible to a fault, the camera (or edited footage at least) spending a lot of time with her upper body. She showered and ended up fully dressed on a couch with Mick, the two pawing each other as he nuzzled her boobs and pulled her hair, manhandling her crotch with her approval before she gave him some hand assisted head. I’d rather she throated him slower but she did okay, her eye contact not as solid as some of her peers though her energy levels assisted by Mick’s hand inside her pussy making her frothy wet while she overdid the screaming. He banged her briefly vaginally before tapping her ass, the passive anal improving a little as she warmed up (though she was never great at anal here). The couple continued boning until she knelt before him to receive his wealth of genetic juice to her face, the camera fading out before it was determined if she swallowed any of the baby batter. The company website described the scene like this: “Bonnie Rotten is first-up as we celebrate the release of Hot Body Ink, our June 2013 title featuring sluts with tattoos almost as impressive as their sex drives! This brunette looks right through the camera and makes Mick prove he's got what it takes... when you see how much Bonnie loves tattoos, you'll understand where she's coming from - she's no delicate flower! But a rough anal reaming and a face covered in cumshot does her better than any tattoo...”
Scene Two: Sarah Jessie, a lean blond with a body built for speed over comfort, was up next in a tiny outfit of her own, her thigh high boots and studded bra a nice touch as she paraded in front of the fountain outside during her tease. Her ink was much more interesting to me for the color and textures presented but her implants did little for me aside from look a bit out of place. She moved inside during the tease montage and ended up with Erik Everhard, her luck meaning the pairing was an upgrade on a couple of levels. While she did not do anal, she was largely active during both her own gash gobbling by the lad as well as her hearty hummer and vaginal riding. The taste testing was solid and the lust connection portrayed by the pair was quite well done, her fleshtones contrasting nicely with the white furniture. The scene ended when she knelt to take a facial glazing of population pudding, the lady sucking him clean as though embracing her inner slut. The company website described the scene like this: “Sarah Jessie shows off her amazing tattooed body for the solo intro to this 30 minute scene. Welcome back to Hot Body Ink, where female flesh never looked more artistic... or more flushed from arousal! With her nipples getting hard as rocks and her pussy gushing wet, it takes no time to get the action going. Watch those big tits bounce as she rides him over and over, until she's breathless, eyes closed, taking a facial cumshot!”
Scene Three: Bailey Blue, an attractive blond with modest ink compared to some of the others, was up next in a montage where her bikini outfit was allowed to remain on her frame longer though her perfect pucker was destined to get hammered by the cock of Manuel Ferrara. She provided a sensuality most of her peers simply lacked this time, her caresses and facial glances to the camera and Manuel just more convincing to me as I watched her in action. Bailey’s pretty eyes did not hurt at all in this sense either, the minimalist music as disposable as the rest though I liked her all natural curves quite a bit (even if I would have added a few pounds to her). The poolside tease led to her on the black couch making out with Manuel, his hand warming her up successfully as her juices flowed and he sampled them. I knew when he fingered and ate her ass that she would be getting fucked in the back door too, her expression priceless as she showed some definite interest in him plunging deep inside her sweet rear once the vaginal was largely over. She was a devoted oralist too, her eye contact enhancing her scene tremendously just as her open mouth and eyes showed she adored his spunk going into her mouth for swallowing. The company website described the scene like this: “Bailey Blue flaunts her sensuality and strolls the grounds, warming up for this 28 minute scene. After that nude exhibition, she gets her pussy stroked and licked until she's gasping for more - there's no doubt, she showed up in the mood for fun! Manuel gives her the most intense time her pussy's ever had, and after that, it's her ass's turn... this hot blonde rides him, strokes him, kisses him and gets his cumshot all over her face, in this wild anal ride from Hot Body Ink!”
Scene Four: Dana Vespoli, a sexual demon and Xcritic blogger of some notoriety, was up next in a tease scene that looked decidedly different from the others, the artwork she appeared in front of as well as the music just different enough to make me wonder. She wore revealing clothing but not overly so in the tattoo parlor she was in, her tasty ass begging for a pegging and the lady showing she still had the kind of moves even Mick Blue could appreciate. The tease was not her strong point however, Mick spending a lot of time on her ass and tits as she mounted him for some dry humping. Mick was rough with Dana but she loved it, the gal teasing him as well as showing she could take anything he dished out during what appeared to be the shortest scene of the batch. Dana gave him the best teasing blowjob of the day and Mick just fingered her ass before going right inside it at full tilt, Dana barely able to hold on initially though she seemed to challenge him too. She was not as active at first but let him do most of the work, making this a modest performance by a favored lady even if she did drain him of every drop of splooge she could, kneeling before him to swallow much of his wad. The company website described the scene like this: “Dana Vespoli is a city girl at heart and a sex fiend through and through! Get a glimpse of one steamy urban encounter as this tattooed brunette fucks a guy in his office, for this 21 minute hardcore scene. She's not the kind of woman who likes to say no... she'd much rather give a horny guy even more than he's expecting! She worships his cock on her knees at the beginning, and lets him get all the anal he wants in the end!”
Scene Five: Christy Mack, a relative newcomer with a distinctive look to her thanks to her tattoos and weird hairstyle, was up last with Mick Blue after her tease montage was over. She wore a modest one piece black vinyl type of lingerie that revealed her gorgeous ass, her mullet and shaven portions of her head definitely less common in the industry than a traditional look. In any case, she caressed herself during the tease and masturbated her mostly shaven snatch, ending up on the white furniture with Mick, the man looking like a scruffy insurance salesman this time as he roughed her up (to her delight). She whipped his pecker out of his pants and stroked him before their kisses led to a decent hummer, her eye contact pretty solid though he did not go down on her (and her blowjob only took part of him into her mouth). He tore into her pussy though and while she was another that only did vaginal sex, she gave a performance about it while Mick choked her. She let him do most of the work too, this passive penetration not particularly to my liking, Mick eventually getting her to impale herself right towards the very end of the scene which led to an abrupt edit where she knelt in front of him to get her facial of ball batter. The company website described the scene like this: “Christy Mack combines punk, class, and a fine ass for this 26 minute scene from Hot Body Ink. Her wild mohawk and tattoos let you know she's not your typical slut... no, she's way better than ''typical!'' She grins and goes for Mick's cock with an eager blowjob, then spreads her legs wide to let him put it wherever he likes. How many positions do you think it took to turn this brunette bad-ass into another whimpering woman begging for his cumshot?”
Summary: Hot Body Ink by director William H. Nutsack for Elegant Angel was a straightforward fuck flick consisting of scenes utilizing heavily tattooed but attractive ladies, and a high end set of males to work with them. The sexual trysts were not always as passionate as I had hoped they would be and the technical aspects were above average most of the time, the overall movie following the company formula well enough to merit a rating of Recommended. Bailey Blue and Christy Mack were the two highlights for me but your mileage may vary due to personal tastes, none of the ladies lacking in the looks department (and some providing quite active rides. In short, Hot Body Ink lacked an original execution of the advertised concept but it offered some replay and stroke value, the chemistry between the performers not as substantial as the best company efforts but sufficient to merit some accolades all the same, check it out and see why the usual fan boys are salivating.
