The sharkfins are just an Ibanez thing I think.

i think you mean a jackson thing, ibanez have their inferior "sharktooth" rip off version of the jackson sharkfin.

My old guitar teacher had a guitar covered with stickers & magazine clippings and stuff, which he actually did quite tastefully with a nice finish over it, anyway he actually to a bunch of girly like rainbow and carebare stickers and put them over his inlays and clearcoated over it (It was maple fretboard). The thing played nice and you they didn't scrape off or anything.

Oh yeah, that's what I was thinking of .

Stickers? That sounds like the world's worst idea.

Also, sharktooth > sharkfin.

I had Etnies stickers for inlays on my old bass,they worked great until I tried to remove them,left a nasty residue on it.It will work if you don't want to remove them later

You can't cover a block inlay with a sharkfin/tooth/whatever inlay.

TS said that he's seen block inlay stickers, but not sharkfin/tooth/whatever inlay stickers. His King V probably has dot inlays

Sharkfin inlays don't completely cover dot inlays either.

Ah, that is true... He could go for the Dave Mustaine Sharkfin/dot combo thing, or remove the inlays and put wood filler in, but that would look crappy.

I have stickers on my acoustic guitar's fretboard, as said above, as long as you don't plan to remove them there is no problem.

Yeah thats the thing. not sure how I could get around that issue, without putting effort and modding something, with the good possiblity of stuffing it up.

Worst idea ever? No.
Surf eBay, there are quite a few brands that produce stickers to spice up your drab fretboard. Most stickers are made out of the same "material" that is used to create decals for stock cars and police cruisers, and is very thin and very durable. They are backed with adhesive and placed where ever you want them, and dont have to be coated.... Best of all, they aren't Carebears. My favorite that I've ran across so far was a set of iron crosses that cover dot inlays.

You could always learn how to replace your fingerboard and learn how to do real inlays. Learning is a good thing.

Haha, my sister gave me a sorry First Act Acoustic a long time ago and the frets were just stickers. Well, now there isn't any stickers on it. But I don't play it because they are terrible.

If it has a cool design then go for it. They have to make stickers for them. If they don't have what you want, then ask the company to special order them for you

I bought my son a BC Rich starter pack with a halfway decent NJ series Warlock with the widow head stock. He wanted it to look different so one day when I was getting some parts for my car I noticed some cool decals they were selling on clearance at Lappens. I got them and added them to his guitar. They look like they were on the guitar from the factory. I had some bullethole decals left and I used them to cover the inlays on the fret board. They seem to work fine and didn't effect the playing of the guitar. This is a fairly cheap guitar and I was not worried about ruining something that might have value in the future. I have seen bumper stickers on guitars and bought used guitars with stickers on them they come off the finish pretty easy but i doubt you will get the same results peeling them off a fret board. I use basic mineral spirits to remove the glue residue without hurting the finsh not sure if it would work on a fret board.
