Remember that guy in the Lady Gaga “Born This Way ” video with the face full of tattoos? That’s Rick Genest, model and muse for Thierry Mugler designer Nicola Formichetti. In a new fashion editorial for Schon Magazine, Genest’s face full of tattoos was covered up with flesh-colored makeup and he was reimagined as a somewhat normal looking guy. With tattoos, without tattoos, he’s still mega hot. Check out more shots of Mr. Genest after the jump! [Design Scene]

With his tattoos intact.

And after a major makeup job.
