Fans show their Saints pride skin-deep

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Some Saints fans want to hold on to the Super Bowl victory so badly they are getting "Who Dat" tats. Tattoo shops have seen a boom with requests for the fleur de lis.

One tattoo shop in Shreveport has been swamped with business since right after the big game and nearly everyone was marching in with the Saints on their mind.

The fleur de lis symbol is so popular the owner said the shop started offering specials for the design. One customer said the tattoo is about much more than just a design.

"It represents the struggle that all Louisianans had to go through to get this," said Justin Myers.

The owner said his artists have etched dozens of the tattoos each day and plan to continue as long as people want them.
