Zombie Boy

Some of you may already be aware of Zombie Boy, aka. Rick Genest, an artist and model from Montreal, Canada. He is known mostly for his extensive tattoo coverage resembling that of a corpse/skeleton/etc. He cites his choice of tattoos as "about the human body as a decomposing corpse – the art of a rotting cadaver.", and "also a tribute to horror movies", a favourite genre of his.

Anyway, he has recently been featured in a video for cover-up make-up company, Dermablend... Its pretty amazing what they do, check it out !!
(ps. yes his tattoos are all completely real!)

The first video is the 'behind the scenes' footage and the second is the actual advert!

On the flip side, little bit hypocritical that the vibe of the advert is 'don't judge a book by its cover, etc.' yet its being used to sell make-up which is intended for the cover up of tattoos, skin conditions, etc...
