The depends on how you define "in." Most stories about spiders laying eggs under human skin, or in the muscular tissue, are urban myths. They aren't supported by evidence, and mostly show how scared people are of spiders. That said, it is possible for spiders to lay their eggs in the ear or nose, where there's already a hollow and it's out of sight and easy reach. It isn't likely, but it is possible.

YUP ☺☺ UNDER THE SKIN WITH MY OPINION IS NOT A SUITABLE PLACE FOR THE LAYMENT OF EGGS ☺☺
♦BUT, it could be possible if they gets appropriate place with favourable conditions needed in the place where these eggs reside♦

The have no means of laying eggs inside of a person, they have no ovipositors, and their eggs are simply laid onto surfaces. They could always lay eggs on you, if you you are incredibly lazy and never move, sure, they they would just think you are a warm wall. But even the slightest movements during egg deposition would deter the spider from laying their eggs there.
