Sleeve Tattoo Custom Design Wanted

I am looking for a sleeve tattoo template to be designed. I only like black, grey and skin colour shading. Just so you know i am white in skin color.

I want it to start from top of my shoulder down to my wrist. This tattoo will be for my right arm.

I currently have one tattoo on my right arm which is want the tattoo to blend into (look like it was apart of the new design)

it goes from the side of my arm. It says "such is life". if i have my hands down to my side you can read it from behind from my elbow down to my wrist. Please see photos attached to this post.

The design:

I want it to tell a story. I am willing to give the creators free reign on this (please remember only black and shading!) i hate colour tattoos.

To give you a run down.

I was homeless for a year and lived on the streets of Australia where i live.

I was taken in and developed a bad drug habbit and allot of bad dealings.

Got to a point where i was so skinny after years of addiction i was 20kg; underweight for my height.

I have technically died (heart stopped ) from a overdose. Obviously bought back to life.

got my shit together, moved out and away from bad influences and slept in my car for a year.

found a job and while still sleeping in my car went to work and back, showering and doing my laundry and a local caravan park at night.

I then found refuge and finally got my own rented apartment. I have since moved interstate and have a high paying job, lost the junkie look and have allot of nice things and very happy. ( pulled through it )

5 years on, i am extremely successful, have a wife of 2 years and partner of 4 years. My son is 8months old born 2/2/2012. His name is "domonic".

basically i want it to show the above but in illustrated form. Weather you use words, quotes, writting, or what ever to explain the above. Even something dark like skulls to represent death or something and then coming back to life.

i want it to read the story and show how no matter what, you can pull through.

i love tattoos that tell a story. feel free to be creative but also not looking ( too soft )
