N-Dubz’ Dappy set to get ‘a giant Amy Winehouse tattoo’ – Tabloid Hell

Rapper says he'll honour the singer's memory with some tasteful body art

N-Dubz mainman Dappy has told of his plans to honour the memory of Amy Winehouse by getting a “giant tattoo” of her name on his arm.

The diminutive rapper, who is currently trying to get his solo career to take off, told the Daily Mirror that he plans to pay his own tribute in skin ink, despite the fact he never actually met the singer.

He said:

I’m gonna get a giant tattoo of Amy’s name on my arm – out of respect to what a great artist she was. 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.

Tributes for Winehouse have been plentiful since she passed away, with Lady Gaga, Paramore‘s Hayley Williams and Mark Ronson among those publically paying tribute to the singer, but this is perhaps the first time that any pop star has announced plans to get a Winehouse memorial tattoo.
