My daughter became quite obsessed with the idea of getting her ears pierced at the age of nine, and quickly got her older sister on board with the hope of doing it together. The only ones left to get on board were her dad and me! This rite of passage for many is commonly paired with feelings of excitement and apprehension for the kids and parents alike. In an effort to make your child’s experience go as smoothly as possible, we’ve researched stores, salons, and tattoo shops offering ear piercing for kids in Chicago’s western suburbs.
