Usually the pinstriping "ideas" are left to the artist for control of creativity aside from what colors you like. Other then that it should be something meaningful to you (like a tattoo would be).

+1! Give the "artist"some direction, but turn over all creative control. He/she will create a 1 of a kind amazing work of art on your bike!

I absolutely love pinstriping and am thinking about doing the same on mine one day.

Post lots of pics when you get it done!

Definitely post pics : ). I am getting into striping and have worked with gold leaf. Once I can afford material I will be buying tins ,doing artwork and selling them between the forums and eBay.

My last dragbike was stiped in between colors with 14c gold leaf and gold glitter throughout the colors. That gut did it just for a hobby and the challenge.

It's a lost artform taking over by computers and vinyl. I pinstriped a guys ride once, he liked the design but was mad because it wasn't perfectly symmetrical. I said c'mon its done by hand, nothing is "perfect" and if he wanted "perfect" he should go buy a sticker!
