    It will be a 'right of passage' in our house to have pierced ears. Probably around 12-13. No way would I judge (or even care) what anyone else does though.

    My gosh... I wonder what people must think of me?!
    I have a coffee table & 6 down lights in my bedroom, always have my nails done fingers and toes, (not rediculous French tip). Dd has her ears pierced, I just bought a commodore lol

    I had my ears pierced at 20 and it was the most painful piercing I have had (and I had several in various places in my early 20's). I would NEVER intentionally inflict that kind of pain on a baby. Ears are some of the most sensitive parts on a body. Unless it is medically necessary, I think a person is entitled to make informed consent to making permanent modifications to their body. You would never tattoo a baby or pierce their tongue, I don't know why it is culturally acceptable to do it to their ears.

    wow - My DD had hers done last weekend. (she is turning 7 in a couple of weeks)

    Desperately, desperately wanted them done ... she was scared (she is a major wuss, so that isnt surprising) ... but in fact didnt cry and said they didnt hurt at all.

    And absolutely LOVES them.

    How would you feel about someone piercing their infant boy's ears? Or an infant girl's eyebrow? I don't see a distinction between these and piercing an infant girl's ears, so perhaps that gives you an insight into how I feel about it.
    I must be just lucky re the scaring?

    Look granted you have a point - would I feel the same about an infants EYEBROW being pierced - HELL now! Why???? I dont know??? Other then the main thing that it has to be done with a needle and not a gun and I happen to know having a needle in the old eyebrow is a sh1t load more hurty then a gun to the earlobe. Would I be oppossed to a little infant boy getting his ear pierced? no I wouldnt - not my style but its no different to getting a little girls ear pierced.

    I don't think I actually judge the parents at all. They've acted within the law. The fact that it's legal is what I object to.
    I find you are very balanced and respectful in your debating Lambjam - even in this topic I dont agree with you but never once have you started insulting and belittling...

    THIS! Right here is what I dislike SO much about forums.... I guess you think you are very upper class? Non Bogan?? etc?? Well I guess we have different ideas on classy..... you my dear and your views - NOT classy.

    I don't think it's trashy and I don't think it's cute. It's metal forced through flesh without the owner of the ears consent. I just don't geddit.

    My dd got her ears done when she was 4 months it was good cause she never touched them or got any infections or anything ears were numbed & she only fussed cause I had to hold her head still but I chose to her ears done younger cause I got mine done at 5or6 n didn't leave them alone & they got infected. She now loves her pretties
