looking for helmet ideas

Actually, looking for graphics ideas. My airbrush guy can do anything. He's amazing. I'll show you the last helmet he did. It's my buddy's and since he doesn't have a bike right now, I'm rolling it. But I gotta give it back. So my Shoei helmet is all prepped but I need some ideas for a graphics scheme.
I like the thought of a tribute helmet for one of the great racers who raced a RC51. Like Joey Dunlop's only modern. Something that ties in with the RC51.

Currently, I'm considering a dark charcoal base, and the happy/sad mask for theatre. Sort of a skeleton mask, that's happy and another that's sad. With eyeballs. And teeth, but no bottom jaw.

For you, you himalayean hymen herder, I'll do idt for half price. If you let me choose the graphic.
How about basic flat rat black, and one of these guys on each side where your ears would be?

Who wears that helmet, white I think, with a grinning donkey on the top? I like bizarre like that.

That's pretty edgy. Has a little bit of a 'big hair band' feel. Like KISS or Cinderella....

I'm looking more for a FooFighters feel.
