Draw it out, draft and redraft it until you're happy with it, then copy it on to yourself daily for a month or two, check you actually like it, or just do it once and don't wash... I've nearly ended up with several bad tattoos, get opinions on it...

I like the marker idea to draw it on yourself, however what if the tattoo was on your back?

Why not try this method first:
  • Digitize your image
  • take photo of your self with location of tattoo as region of interest (eg. photo of chest if tattoo is to be on your chest)
  • bring both files into photo editing software (PS or GIMP)
  • remove background from digitized tattoo
  • place tattoo over body

No mess, endless possibilities, most realistic results!
(really though, it's not worth it. Stick with old fashion scars, there's never a question of your credibility with real body damage!)
