    Я тебе морду набью

    Как сказать по-английски "Я тебе морду набью", но так, чтобы это не значило "Я тебе дам в морду" (один раз), а именно "набью"?
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Hey Оля, here's a translation I found (I have no idea whether it is correct):
    I‘ll bash your ugly mug in - Я тебе морду набью
    http://at-english.ru/blog/kak-ya-izuchayu-yazyk

    bash = to strike somebody or something with a heavy blow http://encarta.msn.com/dictionary_/bash.html
    mug = somebody's face or mouth ( slang ) http://encarta.msn.com/dictionary_1861631739/mug.html

    Well, the meaning what I'm looking for is: to strike not once, but to 'decorate' all the mug, i.e. to give many strikes.

    Does "to bash the mug in" mean that?

    Yes, "bash" can have that meaning:
    bash . . . 3 to strike repeatedly <the angry child kept bashing her toy with a hammer until it broke>
