Have you tried wrapping a helmet mate? even if you manage your graphics will be stretched to hell.

And you need to check on what effect your adhesive might have on the structural integrity of the helmet.

I wouldn't bother Mate

My Brother rides motorbikes, and I have done one of his helmets using metamarks wrap vinyl. It is possible but:
1 the wrap wont hold for very long because of the amount of stretching that is needed.
2 the design will distort
