Looking for my next tattoo

Internet world, I'm looking for an artist to help me; I have wanted a tattoo of a pin up girl for as long as I can remember but I have the hardest time finding exactly what I want and since I can't draw it's kinda impossible for me to "show" someone what it is that I'm looking for.

I know what I don't want. I don't want her to be cartoonish, I prefer realistic. I don't want the traditional big tits and ass trashy chick. And I don't really want a military style one either.

Here is what my idea is and it's very hard for me to get down into words the image I have of her in my mind. She has to be beautiful because I think women are beautiful and I want that represented in her. I'd prefer her to be a red head or a brunette, yes I want a color tat, no black and grey. And then here comes the tricky part, I want her to represent where I came from so I need her to be a heroin addict. I know right... how do you make a junkie beautiful? This is my problem.

I've searched all over the internet for pics of pin up girl tattoos and I've come across a few that I find attractive but not all the qualities I want are in the girls. The closest I've come is what I think in the tattoo world is referred to as sugar skull? Or possibly Zombie. Both of them are cartoonish and although I like them they aren't exactly what I want.

See this is going to be my last tattoo and it's going to be in a very visible spot, unlike my others that I can hide if need be. That's another dilema, since I want to represent the heroin addict I once was, I don't want to be looked at funny by society or potential employers, things of that nature.

I'm just so frustrated because I see her in my head but can't get her onto skin or even paper for that matter. So I'm hoping that there is an artist that just so happens to come accross my blog post and is willing to work with me on my dream.

Here are a couple of pics I found that I liked:
