    Default Getting daughter's ears pierced

    Can any Adelaidians recommend a good place to get a five year old's ears pierced? Preferably to the South of the city?

    Cheers!

    I don't know anywhere who will needle peirce a 5 yr olds ears here in adelaide. I would never use peircing guns as I would be way too scared of infection, contamination and crushing trauma in the ears of my children. My daughter asked to get her ears peirced for a while so I showed her a youtube clip of a needle peircing and now she says she is not ready.

    Good luck with your search.

    beauty essentials ... I went to the Norwood mall branch. They are good handling kids.
    I guess they have other branches.

    Please don't go to essential beauty
    They have the nickname essential butchers for aReason. Find a licensed piercer (through maybe a tattoo shop) and see if they will do it

    There are plenty of licensed body pierces about these days...avoid hairdressers!
    I don't see anything wrong with piercing guns so long as they are the sterile disposable ones which is what most body piercing places use for ear piercing.

    There are really places that use disposable ear piercing guns? Ive never heard of them!

    I guess I know so many people myself included who have had no issue with a gun.

    My only concern with needle is once one side is done she wont let them near the other ear!

    Not to sound like a negative nelly but maybe your daughter may not be ready to have her ears peirced.

    The op wasn't asking for your views on whether or not to have them done. Just recommendations.

    Sorry I find the judgment in these threads appalling.

    What judgement? She might be able to sit still better in ever 6 months or so. She said her daughter may only want one done and then chicken out.

    That suggests maybe wait a little bit until she is ready. What if she freaked out with the gun or needle and it was crooked? That is a perminant scar.

    If I had a needle put through my ear (which is the context the comment was made in) I'd not want the other one done and I'm 43.

    I have an almost 6 year old and a 9 year old and got their ears pierced recently with a double disposable gun and it was fine OP. I'd find somewhere that did that.
