Read the stickies in the macro section. Do a search for "recommend macro lens". About 500 threads so far.

many have bought the tamron 90mm as a starting lens, cos good and cheap. Some are still using it, some will change and sell it off due to the extension during the focusing.
So it depends if u wanna jump straight into a good investment or jus wanna try try only. (not saying tamron is not a good lens).
Also what is ur budget? there are macro lens costing from $3++ - $2+++

welcome, some gears to think about is a macro lens, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM, some suggested Raynox 250, some suggested Extension Tube. You may wish to look into getting a ring flash.

Not necessary to have tripod. If you are just trying out, 50mm f/1.8, with Raynox. :) Have fun in macro!!
