We spotted some beautiful zombie tattoos on Flickr today, which turned out to be the work of Stefano Alcantara, a US-based Peruvian artist who does amazing fantasy and photorealistic tattoo work.

These photos were probably posted to promote Alcantara’s recent guest appearance at the Last Rites Tattoo Theater in New York City, which looks like a dark fantasy mecca.

Check out Alcantara’s website for more of his work, and the Last Rites Flickr photostream for more stunning tattoo art.

Rick Genest, AKA Zombie Boy, is transforming his body into the living dead. He looks pretty badass.

Genest was inspired by horror movies, especially George A Romero’s films. In an interview with Bizarre magazine, he explains his motivation. “I thought long and hard about what I really wanted, what my passion was. And I decided I wanted to be a fucking zombie.”

He’s really lucid about his ongoing tattoo project — which may eventually include tattooing the whites of his eyes and removing an ear — and overall, sounds like a pretty cool guy. Check out the article in Bizarre for the full interview and lots more photos.

Oddly enough, I found Zombie Boy online while researching train trips to St. Augustine. Zombies are everywhere. (But if you know a good way to get to St. Augustine by train, let me know.)

Note: This post was edited on 4/26/2011 to correct Genest’s name, which we erroneously had as Murray.
