My twin girls are turning 3 and want to get their ear pierced. They ask everyday and while I have nothing against it. I was 3 when I got mine done. I want NOTHING to do with those mall piercings. I have never gotten a piercing at a piercing pallor and not sure how they would even do a 3 year old or if they would. Do they do both ears at the same time?

This is a very tricky question and a hot subject of debate in the modification community. It is a very good idea to stay clear of malls and piercing guns. I wont even get into the risks involved because it sounds like you are already aware of some of them.

Personally I will not pierce a child’s ears until they are old enough to discuss the piercing with me. The main reason I wont pierce children younger is I hate the idea of hurting a child and making them cry.

I’m sure you can find a reputable shop that will be willing to help you out. If you are lucky enough to find a studio that has two piercers on duty then they might be able to do both piercings at the same time.

Check for studios on The A.P.P. website or here on BME411
