  • I still have not and they are 5 and 9. When they want it done and I think they can take care of their ears, I will gladly take them to get it done.

  • DD was 5. She wanted it and I THOUGHT was old enough to take care of them. I was wrong. Of course, I took care of the cleaning but that child lost earrings like it was the newest fad. They closed up about 4 months after being pierced. She's not sure if she wants it done again. My boys were both in 2nd grade and never had any I think the other children will a) have to want it themselves and b) be at least in 2nd grade LMAO.

  • I won't pierce them until she asks for them and is at least over 5 years old.. preferably 8 or older though.

  • They are 10, almost 8 and 4 and none of them have their ears pierced. My 10yo did mention at the store today that she might like to get them pierced next year when she turns 11 because she saw some cute earrings she liked.

  • Eh I dont have a daughter, but My mother had my ears done at 6 months..I had no hair & everyone thought I was a boy, so she said F-it & got them done....(they are still open too.) && again at 5, I wanted second holes for my birthday, & because I had just had my eyebrow cracked opened, & couldn't have my birthday party due to that & a really bad blizzard, I got them. =)

    If I were to have a daughter, Id get them done early like that.......
