    I think it’s up to you and if the kid wants one. My only comment is please bring him to a proper piercer at a shop not the mall. It’s more sterile at a proper piercing shop. A

    My brother has piercings ,my husband has them and I think sooner or later he'll want one. I'm not sure if it's ok for him to have them as a toddler or kid or should I wait for him to become a teen? I'm not sure how to handle a comfosation if he is on the young side?

    I’d do it if either of my sons asks for it. Just like I would if I had girls. I think it’s cute Too lol. But yea, definitely go to a proper piercing place, not Claire’s.

    No I have my tattoo artist and that's how this hole thing came up he offered me to pierce my son when the time comes for free as a gift. Thank you so much I'm so scared of being judged

    I am a mom of a boy I personally wouldn’t go get his ear pierced just because I want to! But once he becomes a teenager and/or old enough to make a decision on his own and he wants his ear pierced I wouldn’t mind

    I truly believe no matter what we do as moms, we are going to be judged! If my son asked to get a piercing I would likely say yes, but I also have a few of them myself and his dad had his ears and nipples pierced at one point too. So it’s really up to you and what you’re comfortable with!!!!

    As a tattooed and pierced family I'm ok with him making his own decision as long as he knows that anything he does has its consequences like tattoos it's something that stays on so. But thank you all for your opinions and for the opend mind it's a defecalt somgect when the age is young
