Earning My Ears

A big NO from me! I wouldn't even get my DD's (I don't have a DD) ears pierced once until they are old enough to be responsible for taking care of the earrings and also her ears. Not personally a fan of ears pierced more then once. If she wanted to do it as an adult I could not stop her, but it would not happen when she was a child.

No, one is more than enough for me. My girls are 11 and 14 and do not have pierced ears. I told them they had to wait until they could completely handle it themselves because the thought of helping someone with earrings makes me physically ill. I had pierced ears as a tween for a short time and had such trouble with it the idea makes me sick. After sharing that, the girls have no desire to puncture themselves yet.

I used to wear clip-ons as a teen, but that wasn't ideal as I have practically no earlobe. I barely have space for one hole, let alone more.

Tell her she can pierce it herself with ice and an earring when she's 12, like the rest of us.
OMG, I thought I was the only one who did that!

No, 5 is too young IMO. My girls do have their ears pierced but no second holes until they are 15-16, DD16 hasn't asked, neither has DD13.

I don't think 2 ear piercings looks sensual at all.

I don't understand why people want their little kids to grow up so fast! Geesh- there is plenty of time for piercings and that kind of stuff. Let them just be little!

I got a second hole in one ear when I was 16, and that was a pretty big deal. I can't imagine multiple piercings on a 5 year old.

I would say no, only because they couldn't take care of it themselves and because at that age their ears are a little too small for 2 earrings in each and I think it would look overwhelming on their ear. I wouldn't think it looks trashy or sensual.

ITA with this -- a lot -- so I bolded it

My DD is 13 and the answer is still no -- 2nd piercings are a trend that is in and out here, but one piercing will always be cool. I'm making her wait til she is much much older - probably in college - to get her ears pierced again. Same deal with tattoos.

In fact, I'd be more likely to say yes to piercing her belly button (when she's over 16, since that one requires diligent care) than getting a 2nd piercing in her ear. I figure if it goes out of style and she no longer wants it to be seen, she can keep it covered.

And also NO to nose piercings.

Same here. My kid can get her ears pierced when she's a pre-teen if she wants them done. My parents let me get them done at 5 and I messed around with them to the point that they got infected. We let them close up and I haven't worn earrings since.

And I'm sorry, but I think 2nd holes look horrible on any person.

I'm in the no crowd too -- I had my ears pierced at 13, and then 2nd pierced at 16 (when I was on a girl scout trip -- mom was not too thrilled about it when I came home!)

My daughter is 4 and mentions often how she would like to wear earrings. I'm trying to stall her until she's old enough to take care of the piercings on her own.

I would not let my kid get a second ear peircing.

I would treat it as a tattoo or nose ring or whatever. They can do that once they are adults, if they want to.

However, I would have no problem with letting my kid get her ears pierced the "regular" way at any age. I know that isn't as common in the US, but where I live, baby girls get their ears pierced in the hospital after they are born. That's the norm, I'm not sure they even ask you if you want to do it. They probably do but it's so rare to find a baby girl that does not have her ears pierced that I wonder if they ask.

I don't know what I will do if/when I have a daughter. On the one hand I would want to let her have a choice (even though most women/girls want to have their ears pierced) and I wouldn't want to do that right after they are born for sure. On the other hand, if they are anything like me, and I don't do it when they are babies, they will never ever get it done, no matter how bad they want it.

If I didn't have my ears pierced, I would NOT, no way no how, want to go through that due to anxiety about these kinds of things. I think I would have to be sedated to do it and while it healed too. So there can be advantages and disavantages to both choices.

But for sure no on the second piercing.

Never. I think more than one piercing looks trashy on anyone no matter where in the ear it is. Just what I think.
