Doogie and ProfX are both right on the money.
Tats are something spiritual, (at least to me) personal, and also addicting, (again, at least to me). After my first one over ten years ago I went right home and started designing another one..then so on and so on and so on. Getting ink should not be for anyone other than yourself. I also think it should be designed by you...and if you can't draw, then at least the idea should come from you and your artist can assist you. If you're getting one, closely check out the artist's previous work, (either in a book or a person). The quality and talent of work is probably the most important aspect...oh yeah, proper aftercare is also important in how it will look.
Ok, back to the subject...tats are a person's connection to their body. It's a way to connect more closely with one's personality and environment, (at least, if they're done for the right reasons they are). So it's all a matter of opinion and a person's point of view...so there won't be any "answers" here.
