Although Rick Genest is well known for his tattoos, we’ve never gotten a chance to see his entire body of work all at once.
Also known as Zombie Boy, Rick is infamous for his work as a model with Mugler under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti, and as a love interest for Lady Gaga in her music video for “Born This Way.” What many don’t know is that Rick started out as a sideshow performer and actually still does that now as a main source of income. But he may not have to if he keeps ending up on the cover of magazines!
For the March 2013 issue of Rebel Ink, Zombie Boy takes center stage with six heavily tattooed ladies but saves the solo pics for the inside. Shot by Joey L., the shoot features Zombie Boy in nothing but a basic black pair of boxer briefs; this way we are able to get the full scope of Rick’s tattoos.
It turns out that 100 percent of Rick’s tattoos are dedicated to looking inside out. We thought it before, but all together now we know: Zombie Boy is 100 percent zombie.
Is it weird that we still find it kind of cool? Check out his full spread in the latest issue of Rebel Ink in the gallery above.
