From Posing Alongside Andrej Pejic to Complete Tattoo Cover Ups

 - Nov 5, 2011
Rick Genest is a Montreal-born artist and fashion model who more commonly goes by the name Zombie Boy due to his head to toe tattooed appearance. He is inked almost over his entire body in the likeness of a corpse or a zombie.

The up-and-coming star appeared in Lady Gaga's critically acclaimed video for Born This Way last year, and since then has skyrocket to fame, even appearing in fashion campaigns with androgynous model Andrej Pejic.

Over the past six years, Genest has worked with Montreal-based tattoo artist Frank Lewis to create his Zombie Boy tattoos. He claims that this art form is, "about the human body as a decomposing corpse – the art of a rotting cadaver."

Whether you love his look or hate it, it's impossible to deny the impact that Zombie Boy has recently had on pop culture.
