Take your kids to the tattoo parlor to get pierced. Seriously?

I saw this video and wondered if anyone took their kids to piercing professionals to have their ears done? Something I never thought about was that gun that the mall shops use to pierce your ear. Like obviously they clean the outside but little bits of blood /tissue/whatever can get lodged inside. I'm thinking that it's not THAT unsafe or we would have little jewelry kiosks and Clair's stop the practice.

DD doesn't want her ears done yet, but when she does that's absolutely the place we'll go.

I would take my kids to a tattoo parlor before I'd take them to walmart.

I didn't know any better when my daughter got her ears pierced. If she ever wanted them pierced again, I would take her to a shop for sure.

I took my daughter to piercing pagoda. I wouldn't object to a tattoo place though, they specialize in piercings.

This is exactly why I took my daughter to a piercing studio/tattoo parlor to have her ears done.

I took my daughter to a professional when she wanted her ears pierced. It is much safer and cleaner.

At Claire's they dont use a gun, they use the single use plastic thing. They squeeze it and it pushes the earring through.

We never had issue with the gun style. But that was years ago. I believe it's safer to do the needle type.

I'm glad I know better now. When my DD asks I can take her to a shop.

Most of my kids had it done at Claire's. I'm taking my sensory kid to a shop though, needle is less painful and heals easier.
