The ethereal tattoo riddled could discover the new look of the toy that looks like him on the web. It seems very playful with the result. "I was really happy with the new cover. The original doll was hot, but when I saw it, the shades were much deeper. It reflects my personality. It is morbid and shivering, "commented international phenomenon in an interview with Le Soleil de Châteauguay.
Christmas Cruz wanted to test through his art. Why did you choose? "Zombie Boy; because the tattoos really represent a challenge to the retail paint, this drives me to be as accurate as possible not only in the skin tone, shadows and lights and shades that makes Rick a human being, but the detail and complexity of his tattoos. It was not easy and it was really a challenge to repaint it, "says the American painter Filipino.
His first tattoo is not visible on the doll because it is presented differently, says ZB. At what age Zombie Boy was adorned with a first tattoo? "I was 16 years old. It was a Jolly Roger (pirate symbol), "he said, pointing his left shoulder.
Zombie Boy told his skin to many tattoo artists around the world, but he that has made him a living work is Frank Lewis. "It's Dr. Frankenstein who took all my little tattoos and made one big piece," he says. The long metamorphosis began when he was 19 years and was completed in 25 years. Three sessions per month during those years were needed to finalize the skeletal patterns on his skin very noticeable. "I have not counted, but it is more than $ 20,000, easy," he says about the monetary value of his tattoos. The original doll is of a size 43 cm and comes from the company's collection of dolls Tonner Doll , designer and distributor located in Kingston, in the State of New York, the US.
