I feel like this was more of a "thing" for boys when I was a kid..
I don't see many boys with pierced ears now...
I wouldn't be thrilled if my son asked.. But I couldn't deny it, his sisters' have theirs done..
I had this argument with my husband already. My kid wont get his pierced until he is old enough to go himself. I personally do not care for pierced ears in boys. My husband said it had something to do with his tribe? LOl im not buying it.
Not in this family. Our daughters have each been given the choice for ONE hole in each ear....our sons will NOT be allowed to pierce anything. Once they are on their own, they can do what they want. But, while under our roof - they will follow OUR rules.
My son has both his ears pierced. He did his first ear on his own, his friend did it with a safety pin. I was pissed, but decided to choose my battles and if this was the worst thing he did (it has been so far to my knowledge) I was doing ok. I took him to get his other one pierced when he turned 16. I felt he was old enough to make his decisions and take care of them. We haven't had any issues.
When I was a kid.. if the boy had his right ear pierced.. he was Gay..
Quoting hp2011:SO has both his done. Idk which ear is the "good" ear, but my boys don't be getting theirs done anyway.
