Dappy to get Winehouse tattoo?

N-Dubz's Dappy Contostavlos has revealed he wants to get an Amy Winehouse tattoo.

The 24-year-old rapper - who releases his debut solo single No Regrets next month - wants to ink a tribute to the late singer on his forearm because she has inspired him.

"I'm gonna get a tattoo of Amy's name on my arm - out of respect to what a great artist she was," he told the Daily Mirror.

"She's from Camden, I'm from Camden... I always walked past her house and was star-struck. I used to look up and see if I could see her but I never got to meet her in person, which I'm gutted about."

Dappy said bandmate and cousin Tulisa's success on The X Factor has put added pressure on him to succeed.

"I know that I've just got to get to No 1. People may think I'm the guy in the crazy hat, but I'm a good musician and I want to take success to a new level," he continued.

"I'm so proud Tulisa is on X Factor and it's great to know that someone from N-Dubz is good enough to get on such a big show. It raises the bar for all of us."
