I need help finding pictures/diagrams of where the veins are located on arm before I get tatoo?

In brief: Anatomy books

Any anatomy book will provide pictures of the superficial veins, but they vary and yours may not be the same.
Place a rubber tourniquet high in your arm, hang your arm down, and squeeze your fist several times, and the superficial veins of concern will become obvious.

This is very good advice. The veins in your arm won't be a precise match for any anatomy book, as people vary tremendously here.
