Zombie Boy, Without The Tattoos

Rick Genest, aka Zombie Boy, has tattoos that are very real, and hard to look past. The skeleton-drawn skin has inspired everyone from Nicola Formichetti to Lady Gaga, but it's hard to look at Rick in the (blacked-out socket) eye, and see him as anyone other than a walking tat show. Enter Schön magazine, who recently hired photographer Matthew Lyn to capture Rick "without" his tattoos, and peek into the personality underneath the flesh. Click through to see what Rick might look like underneath it all. (Design Scene)
