You can install additional mouse themes from the Ubuntu Software Center. Additionally, you can manually install new themes such as those from by extracting the theme folders into /usr/share/icons/ or ~/.icons. (Source for manual installation)

Then, to actually use these themes, you'll need the GNOME Tweak Tool (click this link to install: GNOME Tweak Tool Install GNOME Tweak Tool, or use sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool in a terminal).

Next, you'll want to open the GNOME Tweak Tool (you can search for it in both Unity and GNOME Shell as "Advanced Settings"), then go to Theme > Cursor theme. Use the drop-down menu to select the cursor you want.

If you're running Unity, you may then have to run compiz --replace in a terminal or Alt+F2 prompt to make the changes take effect.
