"What's up, doc?"

Dr. Eric Korsh, a tattoo removal doctor in San Diego, expects to field that question and another one about removing San Diego Chargers tattoos a lot more in the coming weeks, amid the team's speculated move to Los Angeles.

Korsh said he received his first call about removing a Chargers tattoo Tuesday.

And with the new Pico technology, which makes it easier, quicker and less painful to remove tattoos, "I suspect we will see an uptick," in tattoo removal requests, Korsh said to NBC San Diego.

The new tattoo removal technology takes between three to six treatments. The laser will "pulverize the ink, make the ink smaller, make the dots of ink much smaller so then the body can clear it out," the doctor said.

Even the powder blue and yellow that were difficult to remove previously can now be efficiently tackled by the new Pico technology, he said.
