Zombie Boy Rick Genest poses with 'prettiest boy in the world' Andrej Pejic, proving once again that freaky is the new beautiful. You might call it a contemporary twist on 'Beauty and the Beast,' but this fashion shoot transcends into something as lovely and simple as two gorgeous people just hanging out, enjoying each other's company, looking dead sexy.

Being in San Francisco, we have been fortunate to spend time (and feature) the work of tattoo and fine artist, Grime. The San Francisco-based artist gets a fantastic profile for the VBS.tv "Tattoo Age" series. Great insights about his work ethic, his history, and how he actually applies ink to the skin.
