    Boy I had my ears pierced at two years old. I still remember that day b/c it hurt like hell. But in the future I was gonna get it anyways so doesn’t really matter tbh

    My first were done when I was a baby ,which was great to be honest because I don’t remember it.As an adult I’ve had more done but I’m happy that my mother had the first set done on me so young.

    They pierce their babies to put earrings on n small stuff like that but not gauges. Plus stop making this about race. It's about babies. Btw don't drag Hispanics into this bullshit. It's not about how ppl feel about something. Is about what's best for a BABY.

    My personal opinion is that piercing a baby's ears is not moral because I value body autonomy very highly. By doing this you take the option not to have pierced ears away from someone. A baby can't consent to this. I know this is going to get a lot of flac but children should not be viewed as property.

    How about you just let people choose whether or not they want metal dangling from their body? IDGAF about culture or any other reasonings, that baby doesn't want to be stabbed in the ears, for the sake of cosmetics. That goes without question. So if you're going beyond what the child wants to justify your reasoning, it's selfish. Plain n simple.

    If you circumcised your baby don’t say shit. Piercing a babies ears is way safer than that. 😂😂😂

    just not a good argument for it. Most doctors will tell them to wait. It could be a cultural thing, but it can wait for health.

    it's super simple guys it's his job his shop and he can deny whoever he wants for whatever reason. you don't even have to explain himself stop busting the man's balls because he's safe. God damn what happens if a baby dies? you just going to be bitching blameing it on him cuz he's got tattoos and he's got f****** bumps on his head. yeah go ahead smart man very smart man. If it is not one thing it's another somebody's always got a bitching complain.

    Just because they do it, doesn't mean it's right. They do that in my country and culture as well, but it sucks and honestly take the kids consent. A child is not your property !
