Editorial review from Citysearch 7/10/2013

place is a total ripoff!!! nose piercing broke in 2 days. paid $140.00 for piercing and Derek didn't bother to replace crappy product. Will never recommend this place.\r more

I went here to get my first tattoo from 6/7/2012

I went here to get my first tattoo from Mike. The design was small and simple, but he did a great job nonetheless. They really take care of you here. They make you feel comfortable and talk you through everything to make sure you're content with the process. It took less time than they anticipated, so after it was finished they gave me about half the amount I originally paid back, which I thought was pretty cool. more

Horrible for custom work!!!! 4/1/2012

My sister and I went to St. Sabrina's to do a consultation for memorial tattoos we want done (our mom is in the final stages of a terminal illness). The designs we put together are nothing elaborate, but each component has special meaning. We called to set up an appointment for a consultation, and were told we didn't need one - just come in. We had researched the artists at the shop, and wondered how they could be available for walk-in consultations, but didn't think too much about it. When we got there, we met with a woman who was going to ""price out"" our tattoos for us. She was horrible!!!! She did not listen to our ideas at all, and went off on a tangent with her own ideas for our tattoos. She wasn't the ""brightest bulb in the box"", to begin with, and we were sitting in the lounge area discussing very personal details about our tattoos in front of all of the other customers sitting around waiting. We never got to see or talk to the artists we had chosen to do the work, or discuss their ideas regarding our tattoos - apparently they are higher deities, or something - protected from the commoners. After the horrible consultation, the woman we worked with wanted a $50 non-refundable deposit to make an appointment with the artist. Well, I am not about to shell out any money when I am not convinced that I am even going to be getting the tattoo that I want! We ended up going to a different shop we had researched, where our questions were answered, and where we actually got to set up a consultation with the artist, himself, to talk through our ideas and make sure we were getting what we wanted. That's the way it should happen!!!! We were very disappointed with St. Sabrina's, and won't be back - nor would we recommend them to anyone else! more

Go somewhere else... anywhere else! 2/22/2012

I made the mistake of coming here twice. Each time, the counter girls were incredibly snotty. They rolled their eyes and brushed me off just for asking how much longer it would be (after I'd waited for over an hour longer than they told me I'd have to). The first time I came here, the girl that ""helped"" me with my jewelry selection made it clear by her attitude that she thought I was an idiot for inquiring about the pros and cons of a post vs. a ring. St. Sabrina's is one of those shops that likes to adhere to a certain image, and if you don't fit that image, the help will treat you like crap. The ""no appointment necessary"" deal not only makes St. Sabrina's feel like an assembly line - as you watch hordes of 18-year-old girls troop past you while you wait for hours - but I feel like it encourages the artists to work too quickly. I was rushed out as soon as my piercings were finished. Making an appointment would actually save you time, because you wouldn't have to wait, you could just show up on time for your appointment. But just try to make an appointment for a piercing! When I asked to, I got and eye-roll and this response; ""Um, piercings are walk-in *only.*"" A word about Nate. He did both of my piercings, over a six month period in 2011. Nate is very friendly (a welcome change from the pompous brats behind the counter), but after going to three other shops and seeing how they did things, I decided that I didn't want to go to a piercer anymore that pierces freehand. Maybe not using forceps is what caused him to pierce me CROOKED. That's right, they're crooked. Nate did two piercings on my lower lip, and you can barely tell, but the one on the right is at more of an angle than the one on the left. Nobody who isn't close enough to kiss me would notice, but *I* notice, and I regret going to an artist who couldn't hit his marks. Also, to any reviewers excited about how clean this place is because they have an autoclave, wear gloves and open packages in front of you: this is standard practice! Any reputable piercer will do those things, and thoroughly explain aftercare and any questions you may have. If you ever encounter a piercer who doesn't wear gloves, prove to you that his tools are sterile, or doesn't have an autoclave, RUN. more

My favorite shop. Pro! 12/9/2011

I have gotten three tattoos and two piercings at Saint Sabrina's. All three of my tattoos have been done by different artists at the shop and have had a great experience every time. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The artists are knowledgeable, skilled and do great work. I get many compliments on my tattoos and am so happy with them. Nate, the only piercer I've seen at Saint Sabrina's, has done amazing work as well, and was happy to help when I came back in with questions. Saint Sabrina's is the best shop I've been to, and I will continue to come to them for work and jewelry. more

Top Notch 3/15/2011

These guy's are top notch. They have friendly and knowledgeable staff, always up on the latest jewelry, and have a clean and relaxing atmosphere. I have gotten a few piercings and have watched friends get tattoos done, I am always pleased when I leave. Plus they have tasty suckers to munch on while you wait :) more

Awesome! Best Experience! 3/5/2011

I love St. Sabrina's! Everyone is so friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I went and got my second piercing here (third piercing overall) and I was torn between two kinds of piercings. I talked to the piercing person and they really helped me decide which one was right for me and alternative ones that I could possibly get. Jamie is ridiculously awesome so if you can get a piercing by him, do it! I was going to get a rook piercing and Jamie mentioned a Tash rook piercing and I went for the Tash rook, and I love it. I think I like it more than I would've liked a normal rook. Like I said, this is my third piercing overall and the two I got at St. Sabrina's did not hurt as bad as the one I got at a different place, which is not in the Twin Cities. I cannot wait to go back and get another piercing! The only downside was finding parking, but that has nothing to with the parlor itself. It was clean and never once did feel like I was in dirty place or that the people didn't know what they were doing. I was 100% comfortable the entire time. Best experience ever! more

Don't bother 1/7/2011

don't bother going here to get original art. Like another reviewer I went to Saint Sabrina's to see about getting Bleach to work on an idea I had. My wife has terminal cancer and I wanted to get a memorial tattoo. The staff there was not the least bit helpful with design ideas. Not being a graphic artist myself I was not able to walk in the door with a finished design. One of the other artists agreed to reproduce one of my research photos but had no interest in helping me realize my idea. Bleach was not at all interested in working with me. Everyone was very nice, and the place seemed busy and clean. But I would prefer to consult with an artist rather than a go-between. And I did assume I could get some design assistance which turned out to be a mistake. more

Amazing... 1/5/2011

I went to St. Sabrina's on a whim for my birthday. I've wanted my nipples pierced for years and finally got the guts to do so. The front desk staff was great and helped me pick out my jewelry. Jamie Clark was my piercer and he was so professional! Even with my boobs out he looked at me straight in the eye which I very much appreciated, haha. He made the experience so comfortable. I love this place and plan on NEVER going anywhere else! more

Best Piercing and Tattooing 10/17/2010

I love St. Sabrina's! I've gotten 6 tattoos and several piercings at St. Sabrina's and it is always a great experience! All of the staff II have encountered have been friendly and knowledgeable. I always feel comfortable there, whether I'm just shopping for jewelery, getting a quote or getting work done. The environment is bright and clean. Everything I've had done has turned out great! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend St. Sabrina's to a friend and I will be returning myself for a new tattoo in a couple weeks. more

Best in the Twin Cities 9/6/2010

I was planning to get a piercing done for a long time, and finally got the guts to get my navel pierced. My friend recommended Saint Sabrina's. After scheduling and re-scheduling 3 times (which they were soooo awesome about!!), I finally went and got the piercing. The staff was very friendly and informative. They helped me pick the perfect jewlery for my body and sense of style. They have a great collection and hundreds of types to choose from. They were also very knowledgeable about maintenance and care during the healing process as well. more

Definitely my first and only pick! 9/1/2010

I went into Saint Sabrina's with two friends- one was getting a tattoo and one was getting a piercing. I wasn't in the market for a tattoo at that time but I wanted to check it out for the next tattto I got. All of the people there were so friendly and welcoming. They were emaculately clean- everything was sterile and opened in front of you so you have no doubts about cleanliness. This is definitely the place I will be going for my next tattoo/piercing and I can't wait!! more

Cleanliness is next to godliness 8/26/2010

Came in two separate times, once for each side of my nose. The staff is extremely kind & helpful. Great selection of jewelry & good prices. First time I got Jake & second time I got Nate. They're both amazing and made everything virtually painless. The shop is immaculate and sanitized. Will def be coming back again! more

There is none better.... 8/19/2010

I have used St. Sabrina's several times for piercings and have only had positive experiences. My first was my tongue piercing 6-7 years ago and although I am unable to remember the piercer, I do know the experience was quick, clean and painless. more

Saint Sabrina's is the place to go 8/16/2010

For my sixteenth birthday I got a monroe piercing at Saint Sabrina's. They were super professional, and helped me pick out my jewelry and answer all my questions. They wear gloves, use an autoclave and open all the packages right in front of you, so you know everything is incredibly sterile. The store is not threatening at all, like many other piercing and tattoo parlors, and piercing isn't just an after thought like it seems to be at many other tattoo and piercing parlors. I also needed to get the bar shortened in my monroe twice, and each time I didn't even need to make an appointment, and yet I got helped really quickly with maybe a five minute wait maximum. I definitely recommend them, and I plan on going there for all my future piercings and tattoos. more

I LOVE Saint Sabrina's 8/15/2010

I have had 3 piercings done at St. Sabrina's for my past three birthdays. They are so professional. In some ways it is almost like a trip to the doctor's office (except fun!). The place is clean and well lit unlike other places. Everything is sterilized, gloves are worn and they unwrap packaging in front of you. I've worked with both Jake and Nate and found them patient and friendly. The front desk staff are great too. The decor is beautiful and they always have a lot of great jewelery to pick from. I don't think I could go anywhere else. more

Saint Sabrina's is AMAZING!!! 8/14/2010

I love Saint Sabrina's! I got my nose pierced at a different tattoo/piercing shop, and I completely regret not getting it done at Saint Sabrina's instead. Even when I had a problem with it earlier this summer, the entire staff was completely willing to see me and try to help. They fit me in to see a piercer without having an appointment and Nate was extremely helpful! I later got my belly button pierced at Saint Sabrina's and it turned out perfect! The piercer, Jamie, was very knowledgable about what he was doing, and he was super patient with me as I picked out my jewlery and worried about how bad it would hurt. It was completely painless and it's been doing great! Everyone that works at Saint Sabrina's is soooo welcoming, warm, and friendly. I haven't found that at any other tattoo/piercing shop that I've been to. They're all open for questions and they never make you feel like you're in a rush even when there's a lot of people waiting. The shop is insanely sanitary and clean, and it's also great for hanging out in when your friends are getting something done :) more

Amazing Talent 6/6/2010

Several years ago I had surgery that left me with a 20 each scar wrapping around the left side of my body. As soon as the incision healed I knew I wanted to get a tattoo over it as a way to reclaim the way my body looked. It took me 7 years to figure out exactly what I wanted, however. Once I had finally decided on the image I needed to figure out where to go to have it done. A friend had gotten her first tattoo at St. Sabrina's last summer and I thought I might as well get a quote from there since I couldn't remember the name of the artist who had done my first one 15 years ago. I knew St. Sabrina's had been around for a long time and most people I knew that had somthing done there were pleased with the service they had gotten. I went thinking I would get a quote from the same artist that had done my friend's tattoo last summer, but ended up getting one from Mike instead. I was a bit nervous about what he would actually come up with for a design, as well as the experience as getting a tattoo the size of what I was asking for. I could not be more happy with the way it has turned out. I am in awe of Mike's talent and the beauty of the piece he has created for me. Everyone I show if to also comments on the exquisite detail that he has captured.. Thank you, Mike, for taking my rather vague request and creating something that I love and will bring me joy for a lifetime. more

Piercing 4/19/2010

I got my nose pierced here over two years ago. I was impressed with the professionalism of everyone working there. I plan on coming back soon to get my navel pierced too. I won't go anywhere but Saint Sabrinas! Pros: Clean shop, friendly people! Cons: none! more

St Sabrina's Parlor 4/15/2010
