19When It's Part Of Your Heritage
Some are relieved their parents pierced their ears for them. "It is a cultural thing, (I am Mexican and native) I was 3 months old when I got my ears pierced. I obviously don't remember a thing!! I honestly don't think parents pierce their kids ears 'because its cute.'
Its just a thing we do in our culture. (Like gifting the baby a gold bracelet.) Parents know how to properly care for it and I'm glad that I didn't have to.”
A lot of people get up in arms over babies having their ears pierced, so it’s interesting to compare it to a gift like a bracelet.
