I'd like to have my daughter's ears pierced between 6 and 9 months of age. Could anyone recommend where to go in Cental London ?

er, don't mean to sound sound but are there actually places that are willing to do piercings on a child that young?

Oh dear, stand back!

We haven't had one of these for a while have we?

Gets popcorn.

Gets comfy.

Away you all go.

I could tell you exactly where to go. But Linerunner put it so much better.

Why do you want to get her ears pierced?

Ooh, my first biscuit, I think!

TheonlyWayisGerard Mon 08-Apr-13 22:00:31

Ugh. How tacky.

FriggFRIGG Mon 08-Apr-13 22:04:08

Holy crap, why would you willingly inflict pain on your tiny baby?
Put holes in her body?
For absolutely no reason?

She's perfect just how she is,why do you feel the need to put sparkly shit in her?!

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 08-Apr-13 22:04:10

Oh blimey no idea. biscuit have one of these though, its like a jammy dodger but its cheap and full of shit.

FriggFRIGG Mon 08-Apr-13 22:04:33

Oh yes and have a biscuit

Why would you put a metal spike through a baby's ear?
Does she have a say in this, or are you going to hurt her for your own aesthetic pleasure?

I did not mean to create a riot, sorry if I have offended anyone. My question was actually where to do it, not should I do it. That is called tolerance.

Cravingdairy Mon 08-Apr-13 22:11:09

I personally think it's assault.

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 08-Apr-13 22:11:20

I was very young when I got my ears pierced, about 3, I really remember it and remember choosing the earrings I wanted. I have no idea why my mum decided to let me, but she is embarrassed about it now.
I genuinely thought you were a troll but after searching your name clearly you're not..
So I have no answer for why you would want to do this/ start this thread.

Throughgrittedteeth Mon 08-Apr-13 22:13:09

OK, answering your question, I don't think you'll find many places that would be willing to do it. Ring around piercing places/ jewellery shops in your area, that's all I can suggest.

GwendolineMaryLacey Mon 08-Apr-13 22:13:32

Why don't you wait and ask her if she wants holes in her ears? That'd be a great starting point.

shallweshop Mon 08-Apr-13 22:13:51

Tolerance?? What about your baby's tolerance for the pain it will inflict!

gwenniebee Mon 08-Apr-13 22:15:16

Is your dd teething yet? Mine yanks on her ears when she's teething and I think it would be awful if she had earrings in. Why not wait til she can choose for herself? It's one thing choosing your baby's clothes, but this a) hurts and b) is rather more permanent.

Your baby must be very tolerant indeed.

What kind of person would tolerate someone injuring their child for their own benefit?
