Bizarre magazine interviews a Montreal gentleman named Rick who is tattooing his entire body to look like the living dead. From the interview (photo by Neville Elder):
What look are you trying to achieve with your tattoos?
They're about the human body as a decomposing corpse – the art of a rotting cadaver. It's also a tribute to horror movies, which I love.
What influenced your tattoos?
When I was a kid I was a big fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and I wanted to be a ninja turtle and live in the sewers. But as I got older I fell in love with zombies and wanted to become one. Oh, and I love George A Romero's Living Dead movies.
Anyway, the closest thing I could get to becoming a zombie was to get tattooed like one.
