Another approach is to visit tattoo studios in your area and look at the designs and photo displays on the wall or their album to search for inspiration, but keep in mind, don't limit your imagination to what someone else already has, be creative.
Now you may be thinking, why create my own tattoos while I can just get one already created? As I said above, it's better to be unique than wearing an overused tattoo. You can add your own personal touch to your tattoo. Add as much detail as you want to your tattoo as much as you want.

For me I often feel stuck when I think of how permanent a tattoo is. I see a lot of cool designs that I like at the time but when I start thinking about the having it permanently done I start to change my mind and look for something else.
So when you go to your local shop and ask them to design a custom tattoo for you often are limited to only the two artists or so that work at that parlor. Sure this is okay but if you think about it only two artists is pretty limiting. Each tattoo artist has their own unique style it is after all. So you are limited to getting the look and feel of the tattoos artists that work in the shop.
