Time Out says

Love your tattooist, love your tattoo

Manni Massa, aka Trubblesum and owner/operator of Distinkt Tattoo, is renowned for her bold line work and colour poppin' tattoos. Her signature style fits under the banner of new school, but hit her up with your suggestions – she's happy to explore ideas and will bust her chops to customise a tattoo that you'll love.

Massa's studio is so clean you could eat of the floor and it's fitted out like a rockabilly/punk haven, with her impressive "zombie-cute" art work adorning the walls.

Massa has a splendid bed-side manner (a boon for the nervous or newbie) but will let you chill if you're coming from the well-inked side of the fence. Her apprentice Dahlia is a hard-working, talented gem. Enjoy the tunes, have a laugh, relax and walk out with ink that'll delight you. You'll be back.

Check out our blog about how Massa came to enjoy a life in ink.
