You can choose the old school way: simply print the whole collection, take it to your tattoo artist and create a design with his/her help and professional advices.
But if you're not afraid of some photo editing, you can work with these files on your own easily. There are a bunch of great free apps or free trial versions out there you can use, the most important thing you'll need is
layers! Download an app you prefer and let's start. (Please note that this short description is very general and covers only the basics. Feel free to explore the app and experiment with features.)
First you need to create a new document, white background. Working with layers is the key here, so add all the designs you'd like to use as new layers (or create new layers and copy-paste the designs to each layer). It's like putting all the designs on top of each other. You can edit, move, scale and rotate them individually. To ged rid of the white background of the designs, set the layer blending mode to "Multiply" or "Darken", this will make those layers look like they have transparent background.
Now the whole document may look like a mess, all the designs stacked. You can set each layer's visibility, start with setting all of them to invisible so you have a clear document with all the layers hidden. Set one of them to visible and edit it as you wish. Add your own touches, text, colors, etc and if you think you're done, set the next layer to visible and continue editing. This way you can add the layers to the document one by one and build the design step by step. You can erase all the unwanted or overlapping parts, go back and worth between layers and continue editing. You can experiment with different layouts, you can try to add or remove an object and see how it affects the whole design. Don't be afraid to follow your ideas, try different things and ask for help if you're a bit lost and clueless. Enjoy the process and create your own design.
