Quite easy, especially if the decals you are covering have been lacquered. Electricians insulation tape isnt excessively adhesive and any adhesive left behind can be wiped away quite easily without need for chemical cleaners.I've seen insulation tape used before but I don't know how easy it'll be to remove and clean up after?
If it's to make it less attractive to thieves. Then I don't think it's worth it.
Thieves will have anything away if it's not locked down properly.
As Ian said, thieves will nick anything if they can easily do so and worry about what they have nicked afterwards. Taking all (and I mean all, including the brand and any groupset/component identifiers) stickers off might help as the parts/bike become very difficult to sell if the thief/seller can't prove what they are but most professional bike thieves will be able to spot a quality bike regardless of markings. The downside to de-stickering is that it is kind of permanent and everyone will think you are trying to hide something and are riding a stolen bike or a mega exotic/expensive bike and have removed the stickers to try and hide the fact.
