There was an excellent piece in August 2001's Sysadmin, that described
just that - for an intrusion detection system - but the principals remain
the same.
Unfortunately, it's not been published online:

"Distributed Intrusion Detection with Open Source Tools   Jason Chan

Chan presents an example of an intrusion detection system comprising open 
source tools such as Snort, OpenSSL, Stunnel, and MySQL. "

I remember that Stunnel is used to provide the tunneling and looking at 
that site,
there's a complete example available:

Although I have not done this, couldn't you could use ssh port forwarding?

ssh -L <local port>:<mysql host>:<hostport>

then use 

mysql -h <local host> -P <local port>
