Depends how good quality you do it.

If you pay and get 'realistic' lightening airbrushed on by a professional it will look great.
If you try and do it yourself it will look bad - average. Unless you are a skilled painter it's hard to make a finish look very good. Especially not with something like a lightening design.
I say take it to an airbrush artist and pay for them to do it. Then you know it will look sweet.

Personally, I think stickers or decals would look great.

na man im talking about professionally done and i heard that any respray is never as good because the wood doesnt take the paint as well or something. Could i get the graphics sprayed ontop of the original finish even tho its lacquer.

What I would do is to go a car detailer or an airbrusher and ask if they can paint or print it onto a vinyl decal. Just stick that sucker straight onto your guitar

Hit whoever told you that with a stick, do they think that Ibanez put magic paint on your guitar which made no other paint usable on it?
Just sanding down all the original paint, to the wood will be able to let you paint on it again
