Kid-Friendly Ear Piercing Places

Last week, my niece summoned all her courage and marched home from school to ask her parents the question they’d been anticipating since she started Kindergarten:  Can I get my ears pierced? It’s a rite of passage for many little girls, and it can bring both excitement and apprehension—for both the piercee and the parents! To help make your child’s ear piercing experience as all-around painless as possible, we’ve done some of your homework for you. We’ve compiled a long list of stores, salons and tattoo shops offering ear piercing for kids in Chicago’s western and southwestern suburbs to help you answer the question, “Where are the ear piercing places near me?”. Be sure to call ahead to ask for specifics and reserve your appointment.

  1. I have to say going anywhere that uses a gun is a bad idea. Unsanitary. Always go with a tattoo/piercing place.
