I don't think there's a set age. I can't vote. I have twins who are 7. One of them has had her ears pierced since she was 6. The other one doesn't. It's all about how responsible they are. If they can clean them and take care of them and express an interest then they can have them pierced. I don't believe in piercing them before that.
