    Default a clean place for ear piercing?

    I want to get my DD's ears pierced for her 3rd birthday (today!), but I would like suggestions. I'd prefer some place that did both ears at once.
    Where did you go?

    We went to Carol Baker in westmount mall, they did them at the same time... which I thought was a bonus

    are you planning to have the piercing gun or needles used?
    I will suggest having a professional piercer do it. There is a place on Dundas at Wellington that does piercing for children, they do both ears at once and are really great. I can't remember the name though.

    We took our girls to People's in both Masonville and Whiteoaks (I think it's people's whichever one is right next to Walmart). We liked it because they pierce both ears at the same time

    Ardene did both of my daughter's ears at the same time, but they use a gun. I like theirs though because it's disposable plastic cartridges (new cartridge with each earring). Any subsequent piercings though, I would get done at a piercer (neon crab!!!).

    We went there aswell for DD. They did mine when I was 2 and both of my sisters aswell. They did both at the same time. I think especially with children they generally do both at the same time. They were wonderful!

    if you want truely clean you need to wait untill a tattoo and piercing studio will do them and I think 6 is the youngest becasue unless the use disposable guns they can not be sterilized 100%

    Sittingpretty I think? usually comes by this thread and posts links to really good info on why to get it done at a piercing place with a needle rather than with a gun. If she doesn't see this maybe PM her? I found her info about hygiene and blood contamination very compelling.
