When Rick Genest aka "Zombie Boy" or "Skull Boy" first appeared on BMEzine in 2006, many applauded his daring and strong tattoo work but naturally worried "How will Rico get a job?" Well, no need to fret. Today, Rico is making more money than most of us, particularly as muse for Nicola Formichetti, Lady Gaga's stylist and BFF, and as a top model for fashion mags.

His latest shoot that's getting style bloggers hot and bothered is featured on the pages of Schon! Magazine (Issue 14) in which photographer Matthew Lyn shoots Zombie Boy in full zombieness, but also brings in make-up genius Dylan K. Hanson to partially cover his tattoos. Dylan used Mac Cosmetics for that polite society feel, and the result is fabulously trippy. Check the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot here... http://schonmagazine.com/2726
