Sweet! Her eyes look a little shiny... was it more painful than expected? I think my dd would be wailing! Congrats!
my daughter wants this, too. but she is younger. did she find it painful? i know i did as a girl, but i am a wimp. did they use the gun or a needle? just curious, as kassi really wants earrings.tabitha, not karl
What a precious photo! Even thru the tears you can see her joy :)BTW, thx for the question re. fuel prices on my blog, I plan on answering it very soon in upcoming posts!
so glad you took her to jori and not the mall!happy birthday, amara!(still can't believe that she was the same chubby baby i met years ago!)
Sam- Yes, she was surprised by how much it hurt. We tried (in vain it seems) to prepare her. She is very happy to have done it though.Tabitha- We took her to a piercist that I trust. The needle method hurts more but it heals faster and is less likely to close up. Mar begged for months. We had originally intended to propose the idea around 7 or 8. We were won over by her persistence and the fact that she was making her own decision about her appearance.Pam- Jori was the only place we considered.
I would still, at my age, cringe at the needle instead of the gun, the gun is so darn fast! I may chicken out on doing it again (any piercing that is) just cuz I know how bad it hurts! What a brave lil gal, what we as a species do for adornment/vanity, hehe!
I just had my lobes pierced (just like Amara's) at Jori's. I've had it done with a gun close to twenty times, and it NEVER heals right. But Jori was amazing and my ears are already almost all the way healed-after two weeks. Even though I've had other piercings for up to a year before, they have never once healed to this point. Hooray for the needle!Amara was my inspiration :)PS. when you called me the other day and I had to abruptly and awkwardly get off the phone, it's because I was mid-pierce, lol.
So brave! The tears look like tears of joy *G*
Kyla got ears done as a 10 year old Yule gift. We recently had a little mini shopping spree at Jori's to get her new ones and to stretch mine.Fun Stuff!!!
BTW....just noticed the title. LMAO!!! I remember that movie. BAH HAH HAH!
