Please help with new tattoo / coverup.

I'm really sorry to post this here.. but I've been struggling with this dilemma for months now (and am getting no where). I have a tattoo I would like to cover up (and add some more tribal/details) to. Now, the problem is - I know what markings I would like to add (basically, I would like to add the new markings around my shoulder (almost in a circular fashion), and possibly have an OM sign in the middle. However - my dilemma starts here... I have this old tattoo that need to blend in with my new desired markings.... I don't just want it to look like an old tattoo (with some new tribal markings by it)... I want some "consistency". Anyhow, the other dilemma is - I absolutely have ZERO artistic flair... and I am asking for help.
Here are the two photos (one of my current tattoo), and one of the markings I would like (I want them to form a circle around my shoulder)... but need the current one to blend.
Is there anyone on here that can help me out with some art? I need an artist bad, and unfortunately, everyone I know is about as good at drawing as me
If anyone can help out a fellow hippie... I would be so grateful...
This is my current tat on my arm:
These are the markings I would like to use - and somehow blend my old one into (basically - a cover up would be what would work best).

Also, as far as wanting the old tattoo to blend, do you mean you want it to be covered up or do you want it to look like the new and old were done at the same time? If you want it covered up, your options are decided by the old tattoo, color, what you want over it. If you want it to blend, you can have the tattooist touch up the old tattoo. This will make it look fresh again.
