Ear piercing for boys

People ask me this all the time. "What will you do if your son wants his ear pierced?" Or what will you do if your daughter wants her belly button pierced?" I think it depends on the kid. Personally, if my kids are good kids, stay out of trouble, etc, I wouldn't have a problem with it since there are so many other things they could be influenced by and wanting it or doing it.

When my nephew was 14 he went through the phase of wanting an earring. My brother did let him, but now that he's 17 he took it out. Just a phase for him. :star:

I don't have kids, so whatever I say can be taken with a grain of salt...;)

IMO, if girls can get their ears pierced at birth, or when they're 10, or 12, or 14, or or or...why can't boys? If he really wants it, he'll do it later when he's old enough to just walk into the shop and they won't ask him for parental consent. Which is 16 I think for piercing?

Make him get a job to pay for it himself. This'll make him have to wait a little while at least, and he may or may not change his mind.

Be thankful its just his ears, and not his eyebrows, nose, tongue, lip, and other sordid body parts ;)

It really does not matter to me one way or another if he wants to do it. He asked me if he could, him and his mother have been going back and forth about it, I said "It doesn't matter to me, it's between you and your mother". I just told him if he gets only one pierced to make sure it's the correct one. I don't even know which one denotes "gay" and which one denotes "straight". He said he wants them both pierced. I will defer to whatever Luz wants.

IMO (and here's another opinion from The Childless), ear piercing is rather harmless, because as soon as you take the earring out, the hole closes up. It's so much better than if he asks for a tattoo or something. And although he is Filipino (so perhaps kids behave differently in relation to their parents than American teens, I dunno) most kids will eventually do what they want with or without parental permission when it comes to stuff like this.

But yeah, it's up to Luz in the end.

I concur with everyone here....I don't think it's any big thing...but it's Luz's decision.

Nowadays, just be thankful he's not wanting to get his balls pierced or summat. :lol:

OH, but I also don't think two earrings is bad either...and the whole 'left is right and right is wrong' to denote sexual preference went out in like the 90s I think ;)

I graduated high school in 1974 and there was one boy that had his ear pierced. I say earings are for females and two of them makes look like **.

I honestly don't know what the current left or right thing is. I am just an old out of touch type when it comes to the kids fads. I just know there is no harm in it IMO. Robin has been asking for 3 years now. It seems to be the fad around his school and he feels left out. But he ALWAYS respects his mothers wishes. That is one of the things I really love about Robin. He honors his mother. So if she says no it's no. But that doesn't stop him from bugging her about it. :D Thats just a trait of a teenager.

jigga got one ear pierced when he was 16. but by the time we met in college, he was already sick of it. unless his school has some objection to it (especially because an earring will have to stay in for a month or 2 till the hole heals), it shouldn't be a big deal. if Luz is seriously opposed to it, then so be it. maybe she will reconsider when he is 16.

Boys and men with earings is no big deal today, but I still think it looks gay, especially when they do both ears.

Ditto in my opinion too. Some of these athletes I see interviewed on TV wearing 1/4" diamonds in each ear look like butt ugly drag queens.

The holes in the ears for piercings will leave a noticable scar even when the fad is passe'. However, it isn't as obnoxious or permanent as a tatoo. I once worked with a welder that had a 4" tatoo that started on his cheek and ended on his neck. That was kind of out there. Even a beard wouldn't hide that.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

Of course it is, that's why I said it's no big deal today for a boy or man to have pierced ears, but I will always be thinking it looks gay. Same with women and tattoos. Think some big tattoo that everyone can see is f*cked up looking on a woman.
