Would you pierce your infant sons ear(s)?

For the reason you would a daughter? Because they may want one later in life and I might as well get it done for him as an infant so he wont remember the pain from it, and if he doesnt want it later in life he can just take the earring out. But at least I got it done so he wouldnt have to remember the pain!

  • no, I wouldn't pierce any babies ears. I would, however, allow a boy or a girl old enough to care for piercings to have it done.

  • No, but I also wouldn't to a daughter. It isn't my body to modify unnecessarily.

  • No I wouldn't. I have two sons and I did not pierce there ear until they were old enough to tell me they wanted it.
