So, you turned 18, moved out of the house or across the country, and somewhere in there you collected a totally killer forearm tattoo. That’s great, but you also are lined up to meet the boyfriend’s grand-folks over the holidays, and let’s just say they’re… old-fashioned. What’s a girl to do? Well, the answer is actually pretty simple, and the results will blow your mind. 

You might recall Rick Genest from Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” video. The Canadian model, sometime called “Zombie Boy,” doesn’t easily leave one’s memory, thanks to his incredibly detailed anatomical body art. In an effort to show the full potential of its tattoo-concealing makeup, American skincare company Dermablend gives us a mind-blowing (and I have to admit effective) look at what Genest would have looked like had he skipped the ink altogether.

So, hotter with or without? And more importantly, how awesome is this makeup? I’m sold! Also, good morning.
