Michael "Pooch" Pucciarelli says he was raised "on a diet of Godzilla films, H.P. Lovecraft novels, and Walt Disney World." This multi-instrumental musician, fine artist, tattooer, and owner of West Palm's Altered State Tattoo is bringing what he calls a mix of "modern dark surrealism with traditional cultural components" to Green Room for the second installment of Art of Tattoo this Friday the Thirteenth.

Of his participation in Art of Tattoo, Pooch -- as he is most commonly referred to -- noted, "My friend [and Black Friday resident DJ] Linder asked me, and I love doing shows with other tattoo artists. It's inspiring and good to see that tattooists are taken seriously as artists."
