IDEAS WANTED FOR A CUSTOM PAINT SCHEME FOR MY 98 SUZUKI SRAD SHOW BIKE

I restored a 98 suzuki srad 750 i had the whole entire bike taken apart and powder coated all the metal on the bike black. The bike is put back together and now its time for paint. if you are familiar with srads you'll know that its not easy to come up with a paint scheme due to how the fairings are structured on the bike. Any ideas let me know or reply with pics thanks

Silver flames, with a tribal theme for every spot not covered in flames.
