What is a good age to let your child gets there ears pierced? I got mine done when I was about 12. We were at the mall and we stopped into Claire's and another girl who was about 9 same age as my daughter was getting her's done. Well my daughter watched her get it done and the little girl cried and was pretty upset I guess she was in pain. So Jenna told me she wants to wait longer before she does it. Any thoughts about this? What's a good age?
