Career[edit]

Tianna entered the pornographic film industry in the late 1980s.[1] She was admitted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2002.[2]

John Stagliano attributed the success of his 1989 film The Adventures of Buttman to its "unique style", especially during the opening scene. The scene features Stagliano, Tianna, and Jamie Gillis; Stagliano recalled: "[Tianna] looked right at me, actually looking at the camera, it was the first time that something like this had really happened in porn. That to me was a vehicle for being creative and doing weird stuff. It quickly became tremendously popular".[3]

Personal life[edit]

As of 2005, Tianna was married to pornographic director Patrick Collins.[4] They entered the industry together in 1989.[5]
