I got my ears pierced when I was 6 months old. This way by the time I was old enough to realize I had them I would already be used to it and it would be no big deal. Plus it is so cute when little girls have pierced ears.

I would say 14 yrs old, because i don't think it's fair to do possible nerve damage to someone without their permission.

14 years old is kinda too far.I think its better to be done as a baby.Ear rings are very cool on girls.It makes them look very cute

I think that the proper age should be when she is old enough to ask to have them done herself...Because maybe what if she grows up and dosnt want them, but she is scareed for life and never had that choice.

I think it really depends on what you want for your child. I know people who have gotten done as soon as they were born. While others waited. My daughter is 6 yrs old and I haven't gotten her ears pierced yet. I wanted to get it done when she was a baby. Hubby said no. I wish I would of wnt and gotten it done anyways. Now I don't feel she is mature enough to handle pierced ears. So I am waiting til I feel she can take care of things better. I just now let my 16 yr old son get his ears pierced.

I got my daughter ears pierced when she was 6 months old and yes she cried for the first couple minutes after it was done and then she stopped. I got it done when she was younger because I didnt want her to realize she had earrings on and try to pull them off. She is now 4 years old and she doesnt play with her earrings and her ears are fine..nothing wrong with them.

I think that everyone has different thoughts on this..... But For me with my children I waited until they turned 7 and if they wanted them done I allowed them.
