Salvador Dali and Philippe Halsman’s Voluptate Mors
Rick Genest, aka Zombie Boy, has become a muse to many including famous fashion director, Nicola Formichetti, British sculptor, Marc Quinn, Lady Gaga, and more recently photographer Joey L. for Rebel Ink Magazine. We’ve posted Zombie Boy multiple times here on Street Anatomy, but for those of you who don’t know, he has become famous for his head-to-toe morbidly themed skeletal tattoos.
The cover image, inspired by Salvador Dali and Philippe Halsman’s Voluptate Mors, features Zombie Boy surrounded by tattooed women posing to form the shape of a skull. It’s a truly modern take on such an iconic and sensual image created back in 1951.
