Best place to get ear piercing done?

I want to get my 3-month-olds ears pierced, but what is better? The gun or go to a tattoo place and have them do it? Will a tattoo place do it or not?

TATTOO SHOP! Places like Claire’s and Piercing pagoda do not pierce correctly and cause problems in the ear lobes!
A shop will do them. Call around first and find someone experienced in doing kids ears! Piercing guns cannot be disinfected and cleaned thoroughly and can spread infections

Some tattoo places will, some will not. You’ll have to contact them. Also, contrary to popular belief, Claire’s is not the devil, they are clean, and the earrings used for piercing are sharp as a needle.

Id check around the tattoo places and see ifthey accept kiddos that age.

Tattoo place but it’s up to the piercer. Call and ask around

All piercings should be done with a needle at a shop and no decent shop pierces babies since they cant consent to body modifications.

Please let her choose when she is ready. The complications simply are not worth it.

Tattoo shop with a professional piercer. It’s so much cleaner.

Never ever consider a piercing gun. Blunt force is used and is much more traumatic, harder to heal and less sanitary

Tattoo/piercing shop!

Tattoo shop. But really needs to be your childs choice. I begged my mother to take me, and she did and 3 times i changed my mind. Let her choose, its her body.

Take her to a tattoo place. But some states require you have a pediatrician’s note at that age. Usually they make you wait till 6 months because of certain vaccinations that they need.

Some will some won’t some will charge wayyyy more for children. But definitely a tattoo shop would be best. Call around.

tattoo shop. a piercing gun isn’t safe and can cause more trauma to the ears. i took a class on it… but personally i would wait til she’s older and let her choose.
