Lady Gaga has urged anyone suffering from mental health issues to seek help following the death of tattooed model friend Rick Genest, popularly known as Zombie Boy.

Canadian Rick Genest, 32, was found dead on Wednesday after apparently killing himself at his apartment in Montreal.

Genest earned the moniker ‘Zombie Boy’ for having bone and organ tattoos inked all over his body, including skull features on his face.

He starred in Lady Gaga’s music video for Born This Way that was released in February 2011.

Genest started getting tattoos after recovering from brain surgery at the age of 16

‘The suicide of friend Rick Genest, Zombie Boy is beyond devastating. 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.
