Rick Genest — better known as Zombie Boy due to the corpse tattoos covering his body — has died from an apparent suicide … according to reports.

The Canadian artist and fashion model was well known in the body art world for obvious reasons, but gained mainstream fame in 2011 when he appeared in Lady Gaga‘s music vid for “Born This Way.”

This led to more high-profile fashion work on the runway, including helping relaunch Jay-Z‘s label Roc-A-Wear in Europe in 2012. He also modeled for magazines like GQ and Vanity Fair.
