You may have seen from my #project365 post or Instagram that last weekend I took Anya to get her ears pierced. Meanwhile in the news, Kylie Jenner has been criticised for pictures showing her 5 month old with pierced ears. So what are the rights and wrongs of this situation?
Firstly let me tell you about my own experience. I was DESPERATE to have my ears pierced when I was little but my mum point blank refused and told me I had to wait until I was old enough to give consent. (She is currently horrified that I have taken Anya to get hers done…)
My childhood best friend and I spent hours trying to push her earrings through my ears but I ended up with tiny scars rather than beautifully pierced ears 🙁 I gave up.
I got my belly button pierced when I was 17 and again my parents were cross. I didn’t actually get around to having my ears pierced until I was 21 and I LOVE them! I am happiest with dangly earrings but these are not practical when you have small children!
