    You can’t go wrong with skulls or old school flames. Screaming Skulls with a little vapour trail look cool under Candy.

    With the metal flake base think Easy Ride Red white and blue candy flag over it . It would look wicked cool in the sunlight.

    Might have to put all the ideas in a bag and just draw one out? Then post up the finished tank after I'm done so the person who got picked will find out it was there idea!

    Combo?
    Waving (or not) flag with your blue candy and red candy done with skulls kind of like this

    White stars and stripes with flake of their own and 3d sort of upward rounded edges, drop shadows.

    Pinup is cool I just dont know about doing it over flake.... metallic yes, flake ehhh idk
    Have a feeling she'd look like a sticker
