    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.
    Left side - Ear Lobes 1,2,3 Daith, Helix, Rook, Lower Conch and Double Tragus.

    Right side -Ear Lobes 1,2,3 Daith, "Paw" print piercing on the flat of my ear, Tragus, Nostril, Helix and Eyebrow. "Shen Men" piercing.

    Retired - Right Eyebrow's x2.

    Quite a few Tattoo's.

    Would like a Forward Helix or two or maybe three!

    I know it's quite an old topic but it drew my attention. My ears were never pierced before I asked for it, and decisively - I was seven or eight at that time. Having my ears not pierced shortly after birth and my mum being very clear on it meaning that any modifying should be my own decision was considered rather liberal at that time, since girls' ears were pierced - with the gun - shortly after birth.

    Anyway I'm glad that I got to choose my piercings - then and now, and that my parents are very supportive with what I am doing with my body and my life.

    Still, 35 years later, that parent attitude is considered quite liberal, oh well.

    I know this is a very old thread. Though I have to say I don’t know about anyone else but mine were pierced at the hospital as a baby. I don’t know if hospitals still do this? Probably not?? I have no ill will about it because it was done at the hospital not in some mall shop like Claire’s. I’m actually happy I got it that young as my firsts are the most tolerant of them all.

    I was lucky that someone at the hospital was knowledgeable to do it. But if I had a child I would most likely not have their ears pierced that young.

    In the UK it's never been a done thing to get them done in the hospital. I guess it would depend on the country/culture.

    I see in the UK that Superdrug and Accessorise now do gun piercings so that's two more shops to boycott. Sad as I really liked Superdrug.

    Shocked to hear about Superdrug Boo. Many moons ago they used to pierce ears at one of our Doctors Surgery’s! Must have been around 40 odd years ago though.

    It's been going on for a year, they use the gun on noses as well, sigh. Yeah some pharmacys and looooooads of hairdressers and jewellery shops around here used to do it 30 years or so ago.

    Aww no :(

    I got my firsts done at 12 in a jewellery shop, can't really remember much tbh. My mum wouldn't let us get them any younger.
