    I haven't pierced my dd's ears, but just wanted to advise that you go to a professional piercer that uses a needle, rather than a pharmacy or salon that uses a gun. It's much more hygienic and gives a cleaner hole.

    I had my DDs ear pierced at 7months with the guns.
    alot of people recommended needle but i could not find someone who did it with a needle near where i live. And the pharmacy i went to was highly recommended by alot of other moms.
    the lady was wonderful. She marked the holes and took some time to make sure they were at the same level than i held DDs head still while she and her assisstant did the holes stimultaneously...oververy quickly.
    yes DD cried but it was nothing more than what she had with her vaccination needles and was perfectly fine afterwards. I Got a cleaning spray to clean the ears with during next few days and had no problem with infection. She is 3 now and we havnt had any problems.
    do ask around to findout who is good around your area..there are lots of people who do piercings but not all are good

    Hello!!!
    Just saw your thread on ear piercing and so good to see people researching!!
    I've been a tattooist and body piercer now for going on 19 years. ( that makes me sound old!)
    When piercing an ear lobe, a piercing gun won't do any damage, guns are very strongly not recommended for any other part of the body as the shatter the cartilage inside the ears, nose etc.
    As a piercer the most humane and untramatic way to pierce a baby or child is with a gun as it's quick and 2 can be done at one time!
    So very important to find a well respected, clean and researched studio as unsterilised equipment so easily spread infection!

    As a professional piercer, I'm surprised that you advise using a gun :what:


    OP, there's some good information about using the gun for ear piercing in this link:

    "Reusable ear piercing guns can put clients in direct contact with the blood and body fluids of previous clients."

    This sentence is enough for me...
