AWFUL MODS: Your child is not an accessory: Why piercing your child's ears is wrong.
I see young children (anywhere between birth and 5/6 years old) with huge big blingy gold studs in their ears on a far too increasing basis. And it is extremely worrying.
There’s multiple things that are wrong with piercing a very young infant, and I’m sure logic will prevail, even against the…
okay. although i agree with everything mentioned here, i got my ears pierced WITH A GUN when i was a month old. i am now 18 and i haven’t had any problems. i guess it just depends on how you treat it. i also got a second hole pierced, again with a gun, when i was in 5th grade, my cartilage with a gun in 6th grade and both my tragus’ with a gun when i was in 8th grade. they all healed except one of my tragus’ and my cartilage. but it’s not too bad. i know guns are bad and no one should pierce with them but i’m just saying what happened to me.
i had my ears pierced with a gun and my god it was terrible
they kept bleeding every time the piercing was taken out to clean it (which, you know, you’re supposed to do regularly while it’s healing) and then the hole like sealed itself back up before i’d put it back in
people can have good experiences with piercing guns, but in general they are awful
i got mine pierced with a gun too and i was fine
ngl i didnt even take the piercing out and clean it i just washed my lobes with salt water and twisted them round
plus its actually quite even which is surprising
idk i had a good experience i was quite lucky i think
