RICO THE ZOMBIE grew up in a working class family in Châteauguay Quebec, and is the oldest of two siblings. He got his first tattoo (a skull and crossbones) at age 16 on his left shoulder, sparking a fascination deep within him for the art form. After graduating high school, Rico left home at 17 and immersed himself in the underground punk rock scene in Montreal, and was initiated into the street culture of tattoos, piercings, music and DIY fashion. He survived by becoming a “squeegee kid” and living in abandoned buildings with his new family of friends who gave him the moniker ‘Zombie Boy.’
By 19 he was committed to his full body tattoo project and stayed loyal to Montreal artist Frank Lewis, who inked the majority of his body over the next six years following Rico’s visionary. Eighty percent of his body is covered, including intricate designs of an entire skeleton (skull included) and is thematically, the depiction of a body decomposing—complete with flesh eating insects. To date Rico has spent close to $20,000 on tattooing his body and will continue until his tapestry is finished.
His extraordinary art display has earned him two admissions into the Guinness book of World Records: one for the most bones tattooed on the body (134), and one for the most insects tattooed on the body (176).
“My tattoos symbolize life through death, or death through life. They’ve been a part of me forever – before I even got them done. They reveal how I feel on the inside. I’m so used to how I look now that I don’t see them anymore.”

While staying modestly discreet, the proportions of the Fall 2013 collection play on the tensions of fabrics and volumes with 3D effects. Keel tips, cargo style pockets and laterals all contribute to create slightly eccentric volumes inspired by the triangular shape.
The ultra light and fluid fabrics such as silk georgette, fishnet or thin jerseys are assembled with bonded, embracing and volumizing materials. This balance is composed by both movement and feel. The neutral pallet consists of kaki green, chalk and charcoal ..
I had great fun meeting Alessandro Berga at Montreal’s Festival du Nouveau Cinema. We had a great chat, Alessandro reminds me of Pasolini, not that Pasolini and I ever met. Sometimes the camera is a little too honest for my vanity but I love the edit and especially the Rainer Werner Fassbinder clip. Good job Alessandro.
We are humbled to be part of the ASVOFF Family. Thank you Diane.
