He’s known as Zombie Boy, albeit reluctantly.
“Zombie” was his name as an artist, “Zombie Boy” was coined by some journalist.
Meet Rick Genest aka Rico…
He’s tattooed over 80% of his body, the rest he calls a “work in progress.” I’m curious as to which parts those are;)
He’s appeared on two Mugler shows, Mugler ads, walked alongside Supermodel Jessica Stam, starred in a Lady GaGa music video, and a film with Keanu, some scenes even with the actor.
Like most people I thought his tattoos was paint at first. I mean, can you imagine the amount of pain he’s gone through? All for the sake of his art.
That deserves some respect. I think he’s beautiful.
These ads for Mugler are sooooo BEYOND.
I’m so into Mugler right now. I want everything from Nicola for Mugler!
I thought Nicola Formichetti was only styling Mugler. I couldn’t believe he was the new Creative Director! AMAZE-BALLS!
Here’s a picture for a shoot he did for East Village Boys, my new favorite blog:

There’s an interview asking about his origins, his career, his art, his instant fame, his relationship with Nicola, and what you can expect from him in the future. Typical interview stuff:)
He’s my newest obsession.
Go here to read it. Pretty interesting stuff.
I’m all for embracing each others’ differences and unique-ness.
Stay educated, people! Ignorance is death.
