We first blogged about Rick Genest, aka Zombie Boy, two years ago. Then, the story was about his amazing full-body zombie tattoos and body modifications. The man has done nearly everything he can to turn himself into a walking corpse outside of actually dying.

Now, the story is how his career has taken off. Through his Facebook page, Genest was discovered by some big names in entertainment and fashion. In January, the real-life zombie was a Paris runway model for designer Theirry Mugler. In February, he appeared in Lady Gaga’s video for “Born This Way,” alongside the diva herself, suited up in full zombie make-up to match his tattoos. More recently, Genest appeared in Vogue Hommes Japan and is shooting a small role in next year’s 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves.
