Best way to find the right font for tattoos and general tattoo questions

After a few years of thinking about it, I've decided to take the plunge and get a handful of tatoos. They are all in English and I have the wording down pat, but I need to find the right font (almost equally important in some regards). So a few questions:
Do tattoo artists work with their own font style or can they "stencil" fonts that you present them? I read a prior MeFi tatoo question about fonts, so it seems common fonts can be replicate, but I wanted to focus in on the artist's ability to really nail a font of my choosing.
If you can pick your own font, what resources are available to comb through (visually) large amounts of english fonts?
