  • Why my children decide they are ready and what to get them done, they may. But it's not up to me to put unnecessary holes in their bodies.

  • When she was old enough to decide for herself what she wanted done with her ears. Seven and a half years old.

  • I didn't. Not my ears, not my choice.

    When she asks we will do it at a professionals that uses a proper sterilized needles and not those awful guns at those kiosks. Guns bruise the ear and their cleanliness is questionable.

  • My oldest 2 daughters didn't get them until they were old enough to understand it was going to hurt and how to take care of them. My youngest will do the same thing.

  • I had my daughters pierced after her 3 month set of shots! The lady at walmart was really good at it. We had called around to places to see if they were experienced in piercing infants ears!
