Not a chance.

When DD is old enough to ask and understand the risk, plus help care for them, then and only then can she get them.

Also never will they be done with a gun

I dont get why people whould have babies done.

Would you like it if someone held you down and peirced you without your consent?


Dont even say we give them needles - TOTALLY different

There is too much blood in my coffee system

When my daughter is not only old enough to ask, but also to understand the process of keeping them clean and cared for and can do it herself, then sure. She can get multiple ear piercings if she wants. We'd then talk about other piercings when she's a bit older lol
But it's just like long hair to me. Sure it's pretty, but if I'm the one having to care for it, why give myself extra work. No ears pierced until she can take care of them herself, no crazy long hair until she's the one that's going to wash and brush and style and whatever it every day.

I cannot understand why anyone would want to pierce a baby's ears.  Leave them alone and let the child amke the decision later on.
