What Is The Best Age For A Girl To First Get Her Ears Pierced? [Poll]

It is estimated that 80% – 90% of women in the United States have their ears pierced, but the age at which ears are first pierced widely varies.

There is no perfect age, but what has worked for your family?

What is the best age for a girl to first get her ears pierced?

My daughter just turned 6.  A few weeks before her birthday, my wife suggested that we ask her if she would like to get her ears pierced for her birthday.  I am far from an expert on this subject and was kind of hoping that this could wait until she was a teenager or much later.  Whatever it takes to keep her from growing up.

We asked her.  She was sooo excited!  Her 6-year-old ears are now pierced and playing dress-up seems to have been taken to a whole new level.

It was also news to me that ear rings with higher gold content can be better for you because they are less likely to cause an allergic reaction.  Convenient.

6-years-old has proven to be a great age for the first piercing for us.  What age do you think is the best?
