You may be wondering if Rick Genest’s tattoos are real, the answer is yes. Also known as “Zombie Boy,” this Canadian model has has eighty percent of his body covered, “[...] including 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.” [1]

Vichy Dermablend commissioned Genest to do a promotional campaign for their body and leg cover makeup. Watch the video below to see Genest tattoo-free! It is an impressive transformation.
