So, my ex and I, have been on the fence about getting my 2 year old boy's ear pierced. Being the cool, hip momma, I am, I say what the hell! If he does not like it by the time he is old enough to make that decision, then we will gladly take it out..till then my baby, my desicion. But I'm wondering if anyone has ever had that thought, went thru will it, and what was everyone's reaction to it?

Nope. Pierced ears are a typical female thing therefore I wouldn't pierce my sons ears.

 I waited until my daughter asked for hers done, 6 is when she asked. Her body her choice. Wait until your son is old to make his own informed decision, even if he takes it out the hole will still be there.

For now, it's a risk. Younger kids go through that phase where he'll be called sissy  or girly. More than likely he'll want one when he's a teenager and I would let him get it then.
