Is is possible to put on a reverse sticker on the inside of the body? If it is, and someone has done it, have any pics?

XXX Main offers a line of internal decals just for that purpose.

Was it hard to take off afterwards? Did it leave a residue or markings or anything?

I had actually planned to paint my next body like this. Way to ruin it for me.

I painted truck about 5 years ago, using XXX Main picture glue. Once it dried, I coated the backside with more glue and let that dry before spraying the black paint over it and the rest of the body.  It has been beaten, crashed, and the body is almost broken in half, held together with shoe goo, and the pictures are still on there.  I used glossy picture paper, printed on my inkjet printer.  The body is about to be permanently retired, it's seen better days. lol  It is the Jack Daniels stuff that I printed and put on the inside of the body, the other decals are on the outside.
