SAN ANTONIO – A driver has created a whole lot of trouble for the owner of a far Northwest Side tattoo shop.

That person left a huge hole where The Ink Retreat’s doors and windows had been.

San Antonio police say the driver lost control of his or her vehicle early Tuesday, then plowed into the front of the business, located on Culebra Road just inside Loop 1604.

The shop was closed when it happened shortly before 1 a.m., so there were no injuries.

Police are still looking for the person who was driving the grey Mitsubishi Outlander.

The owner of the business told KSAT12 he found out about the damage from a worker at the neighboring convenience store.

He said he spent the rest of the night inside the shop to protect his unsecured property.
