Ear Piercing: Who Should Decide When You Get Your Ears Pierced?

Permanently altering a baby’s body by way of piercings or other similar activities is quite the controversial topic.

At that age, a child cannot consent or agree to these procedures, and their parents or guardians make these decisions for them.

When this mother shared a photoshopped picture of her baby on the Internet that depicted the child as having her cheek pierced, outrage was sparked as many thought the picture may be real.

Thankfully, it was merely a move made by her to raise awareness against the circumcision of baby’s.

But the reason this was so believable is because of a video that surfaced a few months ago of a four-month-old girl having her ears pierced.

Her head is held by technicians, and then the piercing guns are set off into her ears. Immediately, she screams in pain and begins to cry.

Take a look at this video

This video horrified the Internet as few people saw the reason for such a young child to wear earrings.

What do you think about this? Which side of the fence do you sit on? Should children be subjected to these kinds of alterations?

Let us know and share away, people.
