I wish they would ban this! Firstly, disgusting dirty evil gun! (Yuck!) My mum saw a baby the other week with ear-rings in and was horrified!

I really annoyed my poor Mum to have mine done when I was 11. It was with a gun before we knew better! It was awful so much pain. The whole experience was horrible - pain, allergy, surgical spirit washes (sting!) and your dad trying to get the butterfly backs off with pliers.

It took me until I was 37 to have my second lobes pierced - with a needle. It is just cruel seeing babies and young Un's with pierced ears. They can't look after them and will stick hands anywhere.
