Heartbroken San Diego Chargers Fans Eye Cover Ups & Removal

Heartbroken San Diego Chargers Fans Eye Cover Ups & Removal

Sports2 min Read

After more the 50 years in the city, the San Diego Chargers are moving to Los Angeles. But what about all the people with Chargers tattoos?

Being a diehard sports fan — the kind of fan that paints their face, plans their entire life around game day, and has multiple tattoos of their team — can stir up some pretty intense emotions. The wave of elation felt after a crucial touchdown can turn into soul-crushing depression in the 45 seconds it takes for a kicker to shank a game-trying extra point. Whether you root for a perennial champion with multiple Super Bowls under their belt or the Cleveland Browns there is one fear that unites us all — the prospect of your beloved team leaving town.

One tattoo artist, Garrett Newby, is eager to help out fans in need. He posted on to his Instagram that he will be doing Charger cover up tattoos at a discount. You can turn your lightning bolt into, uh, a palm tree? What else does San Diego have? The point is, Newby is more than happy to help you turn that Chargers tattoo into something you'll love.

Hopefully these tattooists and laser removal specialists can help provide a little bit of solace for the downtrodden Bolts fans. And a word of warning to the tried-and-true Chargers fans that want to stick by their team even as they switch cities — don't hurry out to get that Los Angeles Chargers tattoo any time soon. It's been less than a week and the team has already cycled through three logos.
