DIY snowboard art

i am looking to further customize the art on my board.
any ideas, suggestions, tips, etc. are more than welcome.

so far i've spraypainted an om symbol onto the nose using a stencil that i cut out.
it looks good, but i want to do more.
any feedback?

I've seen someone take a real pot leaf and epoxy it to their board. Looked pretty neat. One idea I was contemplating but have not done yet is carve a design out of my base (like the tip or the tail where it's less likely to affect your riding) and use p-tex candles to fill in the design. I'll have to experiment on my old Santa Cruz.

hmmmmm...
i would probably go with paint pens over sharpies,
but i hadn't thought of that. good idea.

the butchering of the board would be quite a bold move.
i'm not sure that i'm down to do that on my first "nice" deck,
but damn,
that's a cool concept.

Yeah, play it safe for now. I usually keep an old board kicking around to experiment with advanced modifications. The old Santa Cruz came from a time where the boards did not have insert patterns. So I put an insert pattern in the snowboard, which is a very intrusive procedure requiring drilling though the board and making even larger holes in the base. This is a useful procedure if you are into T-bolting boards (which for a quite a long time has been a dead practice but you never know!).

Here is an image of the Santa Cruz with a new insert pattern. You can even see where the original bindings had been mounted (the random insert holes).

so i wound up making a stencil and spraypainting it on my nose,
and i've got two stickers stuck/ superglued to my tail.

it's probably not done, but for now, let's pretend it is.
thanks for the suggestions everyone.
(if i do anything more, it will probably be black paint pen designs)
