My 8 year old would like her ears pierced for her 9th birthday. She had them done at 4 at the peircing pagoda at the mall but we had a horrid experience. They were very uneven the lady missed the dot completely. The backs of the earrings fell off the same night and we had a hard time getting them back on. One earring even came out at night and she screamed blue murder when we tried to put it back in. The studs were way too short and smooshed her ears. She got 3 infections that were really bad, back to back even though we cleaned them. I took them out after the last infection finished draining and it looked like it was going to happen again. They healed up nicely and you can't tell they were ever pierced ( thankfully). Dh wanted her tongi to a professional piercer that uses needles but none of them will do a child's ears. Our pedi doesn't do them either. Our options are Clair's or pagoda again. So what was your experience with Clair's? Is the jewlery they use for peircing good quality?
