Omg that's crazy. I don't believe in piecing a baby's ears let alone doing it yourself and not being a professional piecer
I also agree Opinionated. If you can be against baby's having their ears pieced for the same reasons being against ric.

I got a professional to pierce my dd's ears, and I also used Emla cream to numb her lobes. I would never have done them myself.
5 days old is a bit extreme. They are still adjusting to being out in the world.

OP, i'm as horrified as the rest of you, but at the same time - i don't see ear-piercing as an acceptable choice at this age, in the home or not.
They are two totally different procedures - one for life saving medical reasons, and one purely for vanity.
