Model and artist Rick Genest, perhaps best known as "Zombie Boy," has died from an apparent suicide at 32, TMZ reports. Genest gained notoriety for holding the world record for the most bone tattoos, clocking in at over 139 in total. In 2011, he co-starred with Lady Gaga in her "Born This Way" music video. Gaga called the news "devastating," adding that "we have to work harder to change the culture, bring mental health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can't talk about it."
