I cringe when I see little babies with pierced ears. Just doesn't sit well with me. I don't think they look any cuter. For me, they look less cute.
I have no problem with older kids of either gender making the choice when they are older. When they are old enough to understand the consequences of their actions. I have no fixed age in mind, I think some kids could cope at 6 or 7, others older again.

A big fat NO for my daughter.

I've had both my girls ears pierced, at 16wks and 8wks old.
I quite frankly don't care what other ppl do.

No way. DD will have to wait until she is old enough to earn the money to pay to have it done. I had mine done when I was 14 and I regret it now. It's just bizarre to want to stick a hole through a perfectly good ear lobe to adorn with precious metals and stones.

Nope I won't be for dd and she will have to wait til she is old enough to make the decision for herself. I won't be making the decision to alter my child's appearance without their permission. Imagine if were forced to have a piercing or woke up with a tattoo you didn't want.

I haven't got a daughter but if I was to have one in the future I wouldn't be getting her ears pierced. I don't think it looks bogan or trashy I just don't see the need personally, is it much different to any other piercing? Or just more socially acceptable? I had mine done as a baby and hold no ill will towards my parents for it, although they are wonky which annoys me.

I'm not a fan but yes I don't think of a baby girl with earrings as being trashy -
if I had a daughter I would probably wait until high school

I personally don't like the look of it on babies and toddlers. DD is 6 and hasn't asked to have her ears pierced yet. I'm more than happy to wait until she asks, and understands that it will hurt, requires care in the early stages and is forever.
