You can dream up what you would like for your own tattoo and take it into the tattoo parlor of your choice and have an artist put it on you and when you are showing off your tattoo, you won’t have to worry about no one having the same one, but you may have to worry if someone else wants yours.
You should keep in mind when designing your own tattoo that this image is going to be on your body for the rest of your life. You should take some time in thinking about what you would like to have.
