Rick Genest, known artistically as "Zombie Boy", has died age 32.

Radio-Canada reported news of the death and cited a police source, but Montreal police did not confirm the death.

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

Canadian model Rick Genest, who was found dead in a suspected suicide, has left a heartbreaking final message, speaking of being "in front of deaths narrow gates". We have to work harder to change this culture, to bring Mental Health to the forefront and to erase the stigma that we can not talk about it.

The singer has taken to Twitter to not only pay tribute to Genest, but also call on greater awareness of mental health - asking us to "save each other".

His unique appearance earned him a role in pop star Lady Gaga's video "Born This Way", and that visibility earned him several opportunities with leading fashion designers.

Gaga told her social media followers that she would be working to raise mental health awareness in the months ahead.

She followed this by sharing a photo of herself and Rick - and urging fans who might be struggling with their mental health to "reach out".

Genest, who holds a Guinness World Record for most insect tattoos (176) and another for most human bone tattoos (139), got his first tattoo when he was 16. By the time he was 19, his body was covered in ink. Before he started getting tattoos, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and said he contemplated suicide.

Earlier this year, it was announced that artist Marc Quinn would be installing a 3.5-metre bronze sculpture of Genest - complete with his tattoos - in a refurbished section of the Science Museum in London.
