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.

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.

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 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
