    Think you're a Chargers fan? There's a way to prove it that's permanent.

    Sure, you can put on your powder-blue jersey, wave a flag from your car window or slap on a bumper sticker, but few gestures are a permanent as a tattoo. On Saturday, the folks at Propaganda Tattoo -- which has locations in San Diego on Point Loma and on El Cajon Boulevard near the intersection of 62nd Street, but is only doing them at the College Area shop -- are inking Bolts fans for free with a Chargers lightning bolt, just in time for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    It's a repeat performance for the business, which offered fans a similar service last year.

    "In the past years, it's been busy, so get here early, leave late, and go Chargers!," says the voice mail recording at the El Cajon shop.

    About 100 people got the free bolts last year.

    Propaganda is offering the tattoos from noon until 9 p.m. on Saturday.
