I guess at the end of the day it's also a personal choice. I can't stand earrings and would have been cranky at my mum if she had have pierced my ears without asking me first. Each to their own.

Re: needle not gun.
I recently took my 16yo to get her ears pierced and was insistent on needle not gun based on things people had said on this forum. The piercer said he was happy to do either but said that the new guns (which use disposable cartridges) were different to the ones in the past and thus my fears were unfounded. My 16yo was quite apprehensive and upon learning the gun would be quicker selected the gun instead of the needle.
The piercer was very patient and the procedure involved a total of four hours of waiting for my daughter to be ready.

My daughter was turning 8 when she chose to have hers pierced. They used a needle and no numbing cream. They did one then very carefully lined up the other to exactly match the first. I recommend going to a professional piercer, but most will not pierce before 7, some even older.

I wish I had of know about the 'guns' and how unhygienic they really are, I had my almost 3yr old get hers done on Sunday with a gun (btw we used the numbing cream) so far though they are fine so fingers crossed they stay that way
