2 weeks ago I bring my daughter to my friend to pierced her ear because i really want her to wear earings. but It happened again turn back when she is 2 years old. she dont like being pierced, she felt too much preasure and pain. its just a little kid anyway. but 2 weeks back I decided to pierced her because my friend is using eargun pierced and I assume she would feel pain and she don't know about eargun piercing so anyway, when we are there and she ask me what we do so i said I want her ear to pierced done so she can wear earings., She run away!!! I run after her and i ask her why she did it. and she says she really afraid. i told her we use gun to pierced her ear..she think gun is real gun like she saw in tv with bullet. until I finally convinced her so we go back together and have her first pierced for almost 6 years that should be done hehehe. so is your daughter afraid of piercing? why and how?

Well, I dont have daughters but, if I did, they would only have piercings done if they chose to. If my mother had tried to force me into having my ears pierced just because she wanted me to wear earings, yes, I would have run away...& not come back. Sorry, I know this will upset some people but, IMHO no-one should have their ears (or anything else) pierced unless they have made the decision to do so themselves. If your daughter wanted her ears pierced but was simply scared of the pain, I guess she was pleased with the result.

well at first she scared because her in mind they gonna use niddle like most people do here for their children. of course i don't want it to be done by niddle. when i explained to her about eargun piercing then she convinced by me and do it. its just pain for a while. some baby done piercing 6 months old too and its just a short pain anyway. thanks for the comments. God bless!!

Well I dont have a child, so cant answer if she is afraid hehe. but I can tell you I ran away when my parents did it to me. I remember being so brave and convincing my self it wont hurt much, but when they pierced one of my ears, it did hurt, and not the way I thought it will but much more lol So I ran out and hide. It took quite a lot of convincing on my parents side to get me back in so they could did the second ear hehehe. Of course now its seems like ages ago..and it is ages ago :)))

i had pierced my ears about 6years ago . I felt very regret. It's so pain.I don't feel very well after that. It's sorrow sometimes. i dont agree to pierced ears,even though somebody say it's no pain.

I don't have a daughter but in my opinion putting a young child thru pain, fear and risk of infection for something completely unnecessary is child abuse.
