Assuming you have the minimum reputation needed to create the tag, simply enter it in the tags box and it will be created if it doesn't exist.

There are guidelines for creating new tags though, so be sure you need to create it.

You need a reputation higher than 1499.

I remember when you used to be able to create tags with 250 rep. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Dec 29 '10 at 18:00
Is it really 1500 reputation? Reputation inflation? – George Stocker Dec 29 '10 at 18:08
@George 250 was too low, people were constantly creating tags that shouldn't have existed – Michael Mrozek Dec 29 '10 at 18:15
