The 'Next to Me' singer already has an inking of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, but thinks she could play a funny joke on people if she had another of the children's entertainer and artist, who's catchphrase is, ''Can you tell what it is yet?''
She said: ''I've been thinking of Nina Simone, but she's not a painter. A Rolf tattoo would certainly be an ice breaker at parties. I could get a really bad tattoo artist to do it, with the words: 'Can you tell what it is yet?' written underneath.''
Emeli also fears she will die from falling over, as she is constantly tripping up in her everyday life.
She added: ''It will be a bit of a crap pop star death. A little bit funny, a little bit boring. I think I'm going to fall over. It will be something I do everyday.''
Emeli has written a song for Mutya Keisha Siobhan - formerly known as Sugababes - but can't see herself singing with a group as it's not her style.
She added to Q magazine: ''I don't know how I'd fit into a girl band. I can't see myself being nice to lots of girls at the same time!''
