Tyler started working as a feature dancer for eight years before entering the adult film industry. She filmed her first scene in September 1992 with Sean Michaels and Jake Steed. She created her stage name by combining the first name of actress Tina Louise and the last name of Aerosmith's lead singer Steven Tyler.
In 2009 Tyler started appearing again as a performer for limited number of scenes that she directed. Tyler said of the scenes, "There's a rush knowing that you are going to be everyone's object of desire and that people you've never met are going to be aroused by what you do." "It's a very powerful feeling, and it's something I'm looking forward to regaining during my brief stint back on camera."
Over her career Tyler has worked for a number of production studios that include Adam & Eve, Legend Video, Leisure Time Entertainment, Sin City, VCA Pictures, Vivid Entertainment, and Wicked Pictures.

Tyler grew up with her mother's family in Germany for the first three years of her life. She has said she was "painfully shy" and a bookworm in her childhood. She worked as a shoe salesperson and a receptionist at a modelling agency before becoming a stripper at age 19.
Tyler was diagnosed with skin and breast cancer in the late 2000s, and she later reflected upon her experiences via a blog. In 2009, after a brief return to the porn industry, Tyler returned to her native Canada to undergo treatments for the cancer. "The prognosis is excellent," she said. Since then, no one in the adult business has heard from her, and her current whereabouts are unknown.
