When is the right time to pierce your daughter's ears? This is an individual choice.
Some people think its better to do it when they are babies so they won't remember. Others think it's better to wait until they are much older.
Well for us it happened naturally. Brinkley got to the age when she wanted to get it done and kept asking, so one day I decided to do it. I called the local ear piercing salon which is in Soho and found out that every Friday they do house calls. It was Friday so she had an open appointment and she was at my house a few hours later. I got lucky so call in advance to book an appointment.
Clinical Ear Piercing was founded by Rachel Smith, a registered nurse. And she really did take amazing care of Brinkley. She was so calm and patient. It made this heart wrenching process so painless and serene.
She used numbing gel on Brinkley and brought an assortment of earring choices. It was in the comfort of our own home which also helped with anxiety. However, I've heard the salon in Soho is also very tranquil.
Brinkley was the perfect patient thanks to Rachel!!
