Some help-stenciling

Okay, as most of you know, my bike is all matte black. I've been tossing around a few ideas on how to offset the the black but still keep the whole "stealth" look . I'm thinking of doing a small Punisher skull right above the gas cap and something like "C'est La Vie" or "Molon Labe" along the sides of the gas tank (That's Life<--French would be in English lettering, Come and Take it<--Greek, would be in Greek lettering. My questions are, what would be the easiest way to paint this stuff on? I'm guessing some sort of spray paint(probably white) and a stencil. If I were to go this route, what would be the best paint and what's the easiest way to find a stencil of this stuff, or to make one for the lettering? Also, if you think it's just a really gay idea...you can say that too. Thanks!

Hmmm, vinyl lettering? How would that look, got any pics? If I did the one I would want it in a Greek font, which I don't assume you could do. Since you definately know more about then I do, what would be the best font for C'est La Vie down the side of the tank? Where would be the best place, the tank(is bubbles out to the side) or the tail section, somewhere else? Also, anyone have any advice for color choice?

For something French I'd go with some kinda "fancy" font, not so much block lettering

I got a sweet polished looking silver color I think you'll def. dig it. I'll see what fonts we got to match it best. Notice I matched mikes with the Suzuki font. Wherever you wanna put it bro I was thinking above the taillight behind the pass seat so when you wheelie everyone can read it

Hahahaha, well I really wanted one on each side of the tank but after thinking about it I'm not sure if I could make it work well, if not I'll do the tail section, one on each side. Thanks for the hook-up Gary, any chance of getting them this weekend? I'll figure out where it will work best and measure it out for ya.
