Too Young To Have Ears Pierced? Kim and Kanye Criticized For Piercing North West's Ears

Posted in: , , ,

One of the milestones Kim Kardashian and Kanye West marked for their daughter North West was getting her ears pierced for her first birthday, and the little girl got diamond stud earrings too. But now, some people on Twitter are asking if the parents are right to pierce her ears and if at 1-year-old, a child is old enough to wear earrings.

Personally, I am in support of North West's piercing and earrings, they look great on the little girl. In Nigeria, I think most baby girls get their ears pierced before they leave the hospital after delivery. If not, the mums get someone to do it before the first three months. Am I right?

Check out some of the comments on Twitter and share your thoughts in the comments. Would you or did you already get piercings for your children at young ages?

“Far too young. Let her decide for herself when older! Should be banned, unneccessary (sic) and cruel. Purely for vanity of parents,”

“Shes only a yr old! I think it should be the childs choice NOT the parents!! #SorryNotSorry,”

“So people are making a big deal cause North West has her ears pierced? I got mine when I was like 3 months. Not that serious,”


  1. Really? First it was telling Beyonce to comb her own baby's hair, now this.
    Myne, people say a lot of things, some criticize even the air they breath.
    I don't see anything wrong in her ear being pierced, mine was done at the hospital.
    I know it is a controversial issue in some places but here in Spain ,it's actually a custom to have a girl's ear pierced 2 weeks after birth and done by a doctor or pharmacist.They said it is more painful if it is done at an older age.

  2. what have they been waiting for?


  3. Many get their girls ears pierced as babies, how is this news?

  4. My two daughters got at 3 months and 6months respectively.

  5. We were pierced almost as soon as we came out of the womb
    what is the big deal?
    I love earrings
