Rick Genest Is Not Tattooed Quite Everywhere, But Probably Will Be Someday

As the story goes, when Nicola Formichetti discovered his muse Rick Genest (a.k.a. Rico) on Facebook a few months ago, he immediately invited him to the Mugler menswear show in Paris. There was a snag, though, when it turned out that Rico owed thousands of dollars in fines for sleeping on the street and couldn't get a passport. "It was a lot ... like ten or twenty [thousand dollars]," Formichetti told Hint. "I paid it myself. I really believe in him. He was only in Paris for two days."

In related news, it turns out that Rico is truly tattooed everywhere on his body except for, well ... "Except his uh, there," explained Formichetti. "Not because he didn’t want to. He didn’t have the money." So now that all his fines are paid, he might, uh, proceed? Not necessarily: "Maybe it'll be a selection of cock rings."
