What is the best age at which to get my baby's ears pierced?
There is no medical evidence to support any age restrictions. We have pierced ears as early as 4-6 weeks old. Whatever the age you decide on, it’s essential that you choose where you will have the procedure done carefully.
We will pierce your baby’s ears whenever your are comfortable having the procedure done. We have clients from many places around the world and many ethnic groups who traditionally have their babies ears pierced very early. We have many people who have been told by their Doctors to wait until the baby turns 6 months old.

With over 45 years of experience performing ear piercings for all ages you should expect great results whatever age you decide to have your baby’s ears pierced by us. We pierce ears of all ages, infants are just our specialty.
