My daughter is 5 mos old. I was thinking about getting her ears done around 6 mos or so. I was 8 mos old when I got mine done and never had any problems.... same with my little sister. I was wondering if there were any laws about age, or if I can take her whenever I am ready?!

I would wait until the child can decide on her own. We, as caregivers, continually tell our children to respect their bodies and that NOONE is to touch their body. YET some send mix messages by ignoring the fact that the body is THEIR temple and appease the caregivers own sense of "style" by putting holes in their body WITHOUT consent. Why not wait and have an amazing "girls day out" when she is old enough to decide on her own about her OWN body? By piercing now you are taking away an amazing experience for both of you. When we are children we are given very little control and say over things and to allow them to be in charge of something as simple as getting their ears pierced can be very empowering and definitely reiterates the point that it is her body and she (& only she) is in control and needs to take care of her temple.
