Saint Sabrina's in Minneapolis is closing 'until further notice' due to the pandemic

The tattoo and piercing shop has been in business for 28 years.

Longtime tattoo shop Saint Sabrina's is closing "until further notice," the Minneapolis business announced Thursday

Saint Sabrina's, which opened nearly 30 years ago, says the many challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shop's desire to create a positive experience has led to the decision to close. 

"Our interests have always been about providing the most professional, safest and cleanest, and highest quality shop," the announcement said. "With an unprecedented 28 years under our belt, we wanted to continue to push forward to open, but we feel there is too much to overcome at this time."

Saint Sabrina's thanked its clients for their support over the years, adding that it doesn't know what the future will bring but it hopes it will bring "a safe end to the pandemic and safe and secure way to do business again. Until then, we say goodbye."

Many comments on the shop's Facebook announcement were from people who had gotten one or more tattoos at Saint Sabrina's who thanked the business for its professionalism and great work. 

Saint Sabrina's is owned by Leslie Bock, who also owns Psycho Suzi's and Betty Danger's Country Club, which Bock is selling due to COVID-19 restrictions
