It really depends on where you want it. Do you want to be able to see it? Do you want something you can easily cover? Do you know what you'd like to do for a living, and if so, would that profession have a problem (hence choosing a spot that's easily covered up).
If you're a wuss, consider pain factor. Some spots are more sensitive than others.
I've been considering getting another one as of recently, but the location itself is still something I can't quite put my finger on. Mostly because I'd like to do something different, but many spots have become so cliche. Example being back of neck, shoulder, shoulder blade, bicep, ankle, hip. Wrist is still fairly new, though quickly becoming common.
If you're unsure, buy the fake tatts (or maybe do henna) and place it on a spot that you're considering. If you were to do henna, it would stick around for a bit longer and you could get used to the idea of a tatt being on that particular spot.
To top it off, it really depends on the kind of tattoo that you'd be getting. What's it of? The size and style does influence where on your body you'd place it. Smaller ones = wrist, hip, ankle, nape of neck. Larger ones are for arms, legs, back, thigh, etc.
Overall, take your time in deciding. There's no rush. I actually decided that I wanted a tatt back in 2000 (was 17). A few years later, I decided on the spot (hip). From there, I figured I would get one when something significant happened in life. I finally got it done in 2009. Haven't really regretted it either. That said, don't rush into it and take your time. It's permanent.2
