London, Nov 28 : Despite the high risk of infection because of her chemotherapy treatment, cancer-struck Jade Goody has had her beau's name tattooed on her arm.

Doctors have warned the former Big Brother Star that the tattoo could lead to serious infection, because chemotherapy treatments for cervical cancer have weakened her immune system.

However, the 27-year-old was spotted with 'Jack' tattooed on her wrist signifying her love for jailbird boyfriend Jack Tweed.

Goody was seen with the new needle job outside a tattoo shop near her home in Upshire, Essex, yesterday.

"Most oncologists certainly wouldn't advise it while a patient is having chemotherapy," the Daily Star quoted GP Julian Spinks, as saying.

"There's two problems - one is that chemotherapy lowers the immune system and an infection can become far more serious because of that.

"The other is that healing will take a lot longer," Spinks added.
