Here’s another unique male model that turned up for Fashion Week in Paris. Rick Genest, aka “Zombie Boy,” has all-over face and skeletal body tattoos. Every inch of his body is covered. The Montreal born model was a sensation when he appeared in Thierry Mugler’s fashion show in Paris and beautiful girls were waiting in line to have their pictures taken with him. He also appeared in Lady Gaga’s video ”Born Like This.” Rick told WWD “When I was a kid I fell in love with zombies and wanted to be one.” No kidding.

    Kind of weird/cool? You can tell that he was, at one time, a nice looking man. What happened? I sure don’t get the tattoo thing. Is it an addiction or do people seriously think they look good?

    I sure wouldn’t want to wake up next to him after a hard night on the town. Yikes!!

    I’ll bet his momma is so proud and happy of her little lovely boy. Looking at him this way, it would be like a death. your child you had, is GONE. Forever.

    PS: I think this is akin to choosing to cover yourself with disfiguring skin cancer or an all over acid burn. people with real disabilities would give anything to have the skin he destroyed with ink.

    PSS: neither Gagme OR this dude were “born this way”. What a colossal joke she is perpetrating on the public with her fakeass nonsense. She covers herself in completely FAKE crap and calls herself “born this way” and this fucker does THIS and gets in her “born this way” video. Does anybody see anything wrong with this picture?

    Smb euthanize him. Amazing how all mentally deranged ppl pretend to be normal… What a pleasure to have sex with such a man or to wake up daily next to him. Its like training for ur dying day.

    To whores, sluts, junkies, alcoholics, and all addicts, he would be a thrilling thing. The world of modeling is in another dimension.

    Indy, why is it that you demean people with the most serious of problems so frequently? I’m asking because it seems so out of synch with everything I know about Christ’s attitude and behavior.

    I’m not a fan of zombie movies, so I’m at a loss to understand or appreciate what he’s done to himself. I’d like to sit down with him for a Q & A session to find out what the driving force behind it is though.

    Rick I did not intend to demean anyone. Whores, sluts, druggies, alkies, are a fact and they chose their lifestyle. And regarding the world of modeling, it’s a fact that some models (especially newbies) live on champagne, cigarettes, and pills. Babwa Wawa interviewed 3 upcoming models who testified to this and they said they could no longer live this kind of unhealthy life, so they said they got the H*** out. I feel sorry for the above who can’t or won’t leave their life for a moral one. And regarding Zombie Boy, I think even a seasoned tattoo artist would say “too much”.

    Gee I bet he looks great on the family’s Christmas card.

    Clearly there is something wrong with his head.

    I agree w/ Patrick. Why you would disfigure yourself in this way is a mystery. I’ve seen decades-old tattoos and they’re pretty awful.
    This man will look even worse in 20 years — of course, he’ll probably have killed himself by then, as there is clearly something VERY wrong w/ him.

    Well I hope he is putting his modeling money away for a nice retirement because he will find that no one thinks a 40 year old freak is all that interesting and will probably be jobless from then on. I say 40 because if modeling is all he does, he will be done by then I’m sure.

    He was “once a nice looking man”?? really? he has a hawk face….he was creepy looking even before. Now he just looks even creepier.

    Well, it’s kind of official; the old school circus freak shows have been replaced with fashion models. Now, just complete the runway with the rest of them: bearded lady; tall man; lion tamer; two headed calf; and the entertainment value will be higher…..than those sickly thin anorexic people who currently have the job.

    @The Writer:

    ‘Born like this’?! I’m an 18 year old girl who has nothing to do with journalism but I know it is REQUIRED to do your research. I think you’ll find her single was called ‘Born this way’ from the ‘Born this way’ album.

    That is really poor journalism.

    @The Commenters:

    The only thing that is disgusting related to this article is how people easily judge other people they don’t know.

    Are YOU his girlfriend? Are YOU his mum? Are YOU his family? Are YOU his friends? Are YOU HIM?

    No? Then don’t worry about sleeping with him, watching him grow up, what the family christmas cards will look like and what he’ll do when he’s 40.

    He, like you, can do what he wants.

  27. By Casonia Sade Logenberry..Hells kitchen and Masterchef are double hit on Mondays and Tues and it rocks completely and when are you going to make fun of the fat people and Here comes some tear and Hells kitchen is like an onion...Layers are under it and it
    On August 9, 2011 at

    You could not pay me enough money in the world to do something like that to myself and no freaking way..You could not get me drunk enough or feed me enough Drugs to get me to just change myself to that and if it makes him happy and gives him joy then so be it and if it makes his day and puts a smile on his face…Then so be it and it is his face and his body and it is okay for his own reason? He is on the Cat Walk in Paris and that means some one likes it and that is the only thing that matters.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
