They do in the parents circle. I waited until Bean asked...see started asking before she was 2....at 4.5 years we went in and she got it done. Lost one a few months ago and got it redone in November. The ear piercer thanked me for waiting until my child asked.

Kinda what I was getting at - it's common practice especially in certain circles when I grew up and has become more popular over the years. When have you ever seen face waxing? Never heard of it until this woman did it.normaM wrote:oh come now Fancy - I know lots of people who had their babies ears pierced for no other reason that " it's cute"

I've been in salons where the kidlets are getting their hair done, nails painted and make up - under 5. Then parents snap their pictures and everyone oohs and asshs. Guessing some of those same parents would wax a unibrow in a heartbeat
