I got my ears pierced when I was 8 and I was scared $hitless and cried from the shock and pain. So my bet is your bub will feel the pain and will cry too.
Oh come on, it’s not like she’s getting her a permanent tattoo.
Ear piercings will most likely close if they are not used, especially in young children.
OP did not ask, "should I?", she was asking for advice on the procedure.
Some people get their children’s ears and noses pierced as apart of their cultural beliefs and celebrations.
Now, shall we ask a child if he/she wants to get circumcised, vaccinated, use a walker...
Ear piercings can get infected and leave the baby's ears deformed. Their ears also grow (obviously) so the piercings can end up looking lopsided or crooked when they get older. Not to mention you are deliberately, willingly putting your child through pain for absolutely no reason, except that YOU want them to have it done. Not good enough IMO.
I agree on that point Darcy (vaccinations)
But I reckon there are more adults wishing they were never circumcised in comparison to wishing they never had their ear pierced.
(And other decisions parents made for them) that's life I guess.
Sorry to derail thread OP

As a professional piercer I'm more than well aware of the risks in any procedure where bodily fluids can be exchanged.
As I stated, properly tagged and sterilized equipment poses no threat to the client receiving the procedure, it is also widely known that piercing guns are looked down upon as they shatter cartlidge possibly leaving the area deformed or prone to collapse....there is no cartilage in an ear lobe hence my suggestion for a gun with small children and babies.
As a professional piercer, try sticking a needle through a toddlers ear and then expect them to sit still and through the second ear, something I refuse to do due to trauma and the fear of that little person....
