Anna Fur Laxis
Anna Fur Laxis is an English pin-up model and burlesque dancer, particularly noteworthy for her extensive tattoos and her introduction of axe-throwing and other unusual skills into her work. Her performances include residencies at Jeepers Peepers Burlesque (York, UK) and Wet Spot (Leeds, UK), and have been acclaimed around the world. She also makes frequent appearances in print both as a model and as a celebrity, having appeared many times in 21st Century Pin-Ups magazine, Skin Deep magazine and Bizarre magazine.
She studied radiography at university, and in 2005 chose the name Anna Fur Laxis, a pun on anaphylaxis, for modelling, continuing to use it for burlesque dancing. She made her debut as a burlesque dancer in the Ruby Review in Leeds. Her tattoo on her left arm covers third-degree burns from an accident at a young age.
In the Knife, Axe, Tomahawk Throwing Association UK Tournament, 2010, she finished second to Rich Sunderland in the 1 spin knife category, and joint second with Chris Bilton and Rose Bilton to Rich Sunderland in the 2 spin knife category.
