Tattooing names? Serious question.

I'm not sure how many ladies in here have tattoo or are into the tattoo culture but for those who are, I need your help. I want to get a tattoo dedicated to my daughter and I want to put her name in it. My husband is kinda freaking out because he has this problem with people tatttooing names on themselves. He says that anyone that has gotten a tattoo of someone' s name (whether child or spouse) that something bad ends up happening to the person who's name got tattooed. Now, I don't believe this, nor am I going to tattoo a spouse's name ( just too many things could go wrong there) but your kid's name? I'm having a very hard time believing this.

So my question is has this ever happen to you or someone close to you? And please no " a friend of a friend" or "some guy I knew" or " my brother's nephew's cousin's great aunt" kind of thing. This is really kind of serious and I need some real info. So urband legend or reality?

He dropped dead when he saw it.

Children are okay, spouses or boyfriends or whatever are not. My dad had a tattoo of my name over his heart and nothing bad ever happened to me :)

I know multiple people with their children's names. Their children are fine.

Everyone Ive ever known that has a tat of their SO name has broken up. Considering the statistics on relationships failing, common sense should prevent anyone from doing that in the first place. But, Ive never known of any tragedy befalling someone who has their childs name.

Tattoo is fine with names if its your child.

I have a rule, if its not my child, the name does not go on my body. Your children are the only permanent bond you will ever have like that, a tattoo is fitting.
