If Lady Gaga was born that way, then Rick Genest certainly wasn't. Let us introduce the new male model making a freaky stir.
According to Wikipedia, Canadian Rick Genest is famously known as Zombie Boy or Skelton boy and is one of a few people living in Montréal, Canada who have had their entire body tattooed. He was famous for being a star attraction in a freak show circus on the outskirts of Montréal. The circus was more of a play that showcased the seven deadly sins, he played the mortal sin of sloth.
Recently seen alongside Gaga in her music video for 'Born This Way' and featured in the latest Thierry Mugler A/W 2011 show in Paris, the 25 year old has definitely committed to the tattoed look. (Stylist Nicola Formichetti is both Creative Director of Mugler as well as being Lady Gaga's stylist). In the video, Lady Gaga gives birth to Rick as he represents evil in the world.
Genest's look goes way beyond fashion and satisfies its love of the extremes. Let's hope Genest enjoys his 15 minutes, because while Gaga can wash hers off, Genest is forever a living artwork.
