Because I'm not an artist and any skin I've ever tried to make looks like complete trash.
I've spent a fair amount of time browsing around for skins on various sites, and it's really tough to find a decent looking one which isn't already horrible over-used. From what I've seen, on any given skin repository you have a small number of people making decent quality skins, and a huge number of other people who rip them off and make minor changes, then post them back up.
I finally got sick of wading through thousands of garbage skins, and just went back to using the default Steve skin. I rarely play in 3rd person view and really don't care how I look to other people, and usually my armor covers up most of the skin anyhow.
Pretty much all youtuber skins even the ones who don't play minecraft creeper suit (but that one is kinda cool)
And last but not least emo guy I don't know about you but every server I go to there's a emo guy
I make my own skins. Last one was a rainbow haired guy. Really, I don't think it matters as long as you make it unique. If it is complete trash, oh well, I will still admire you for taking the time to make a skin of your own to fit your needs.
