Rick Genest, aka ‘Zombie Boy’ challenges your sensibilities about what you believe to be beautiful. He has been hitting the headlines recently thanks to this amazing promotion for Dermablend, the ultimate cosmetic cover, which slowly reveals his incredible ‘real state’, which is a body that is 80% covered in tatoos.
Starting his tatoo project at the age of 19, Genest has stayed loyal to Montreal artist Frank Lewis, who designed the majority of his body art over the next six years. These include intricate designs of an entire skeleton (skull included) and is thematically, the depiction of a body decomposing—complete with flesh eating insects.
To date Genest has spent over $17,000.00 on tattooing his body and will continue until his tapestry is finished. His tattoos have equally intrigued and inspired a cult following—more than 30,000 followers on Twitter and 65 groups/ pages to him on Facebook.
