Default 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!).

There was a brief period in the 90s where extremely wide stances were popular. So wide in fact that the standard insert patterns on the boards would not accomodate. So new inserts were added by means of using T-bolts. T-bolting was also a method of repairing torn out inserts back in the day.

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)
