What is a good tarantula species for a beginner?
Can I play with it? I want it perched on my shoulder when I'm working at my desk

Pretty much any of the Brachypelma, Grammostola, Avicularia and Aphonopelma species.
If its docile you can hold it but you cannot play with it. I wouldn't perch a tarantula on my shoulder. It wouldn't be safe. If they fall off they could die. You also shouldn't hold them for long periods of time. It stresses them out.
