Not really, because that will change.  You may want to use something like DynDNS to set up a dns name with a dynamic IP updater.  You can set your computer to a static IP and then do the routing that way.

Here's the service I'm talking about: http://dyn.com/dns/

Use it to create a hostname like hostname.dyndns.org.  You will install a small service that grabs your WAN IP and updates the A record in DNS.  Then you will need to set up a port forward from your router or modem for MYSQL (TCP 3306) to your destkop  

If your modem doesn't support port forwarding you may need to acquire a cheap linksys or netgear router.
