Lewis diagram ...
The convention for writing the Lewis diagrams for ions is to place the diagram inside square brackets and write the charge outside the right bracket.
[O=N=O]⁺ .......... each O has two lone pairs
By the way, when you wrote "NO2+" it was ambiguous. The reader doesn't know if you meant NO with a +2 charge or NO2 with a +1 charge. Don't hesitate to add the "^" to let the reader know.
NO^2+ or NO2^+ ...... now we would know what you mean.
