I'm always surprised to see people with such strong opinions about baby girls with pierced ears. I didn't even know this was an issue before joining Nameberry. I had my ears pierced when I was a few weeks old and wore earrings pretty much every day until fourth grade. I went through a phase where I basically considered myself a boy in 3rd/4th grade, so of course I had no desire to wear earrings. I grew out of that, but I just never bothered to put my earrings back in. I couldn't care less one way or the other if a baby girl has pierced ears. It's just kind of an odd thing to have an opinion about.

It's painful and I wouldn't want to inflict pain on my infant, I don't know how parents handle the screaming....

My mom pierced my ears when I was two. She says that I actually asked for them to be pierced, but I can't remember. Anyways, I'm kind of glad that I asked for them back then because it eventually led to me to getting more ear piercings and I love them.robin | intj | ravenclaw | sci-fi writer | extended list

While I don't think it's tacky or trashy I will definitely not be piercing a baby girl's ears or circumcising a boy. To me they are both cosmetic procedures and I don't feel comfortable making those decisions for someone else. If they later choose to permanently modify their body that is their decision to make and not mine. Raising them to be a particular religion or dietary preference isn't quite comparable. Those things are not permanent, they can later choose to simply not follow those practices. You can't un-pierce an ear and un-circumcising is rather complicated.
I was 13 when I got my ears pierced the first time and 16 for the second hole. Both are now stretched, I have 4g and 8g tunnels that I adore.

I think we make a big deal out of nothing . Parents choose other more important desisions for their kids , a piercing ear hurt them ? Its not like we decide something that will change their lives .The holes will closed eventially if the kid doesnt want them and i higly doudt they are going to be hurt espessially when they are babies and dont understand .
I just dont like when i hear people say that piercining ears on a baby is for low class . What that suppose to mean ? You know rich people can be trashy too.Everyone can be trashy .'and so, being young and dipt in folly, I fell in love with melancholy,.'- Edgar Allan Poe
