Paint scheme Graphics or Pinstriping

Really want some ideas to brake up all the solid color on my bike. Lookin for some pics/Ideas NOT to copy but wanna see how people are customizing.Thought of a couple tattoos for the fairing and bags/fender but not sure if I want to get that personalized but need to do somethin. Any detailed pics would be awesome. Just looking for more than the traditional bat wing stripe from the headlight to mirror.

Yeah, I'm still old school. I still like skulls, flames and dragons. I've been told they're overdone.

Oldeadeye I also love skulls. I know it's overdone but that means nothing. I would like to get some skulls ghosted in.
Op you could try to google image search touring bike graphics.

Here you go man. This is what I did to break up the black fields.
It's all hand pinstriped, including the words on the tank and fender. Really gives the bike that "custom" feel.

And here is what I did with my Softail custom. Ghost graphics are the bomb-diggity. Whoever says skulls and tribal are overdone hasn't seen my bike

If anybody says those things are overdone --- tough. I like them all. My bike is just black and one of these days I'll get some of these things put on. I like them all!

I hate to paint, I hate painting so bad I even figured out a way to do 4 years in the U.S. Navy without ever picking up a paint brush.

But I have to admit those skulls make me wonder if I should have learned.
