I had heard good things about Caryl Baker Visage for childrens’ ear piercings. They’ve got these earrings that are nearly impossible to remove, and their employees have some training with kids. We had a great experience at the Fairview Mall location (Toronto). Our attendant, however, underestimated the tough nature of my daughter.
Before the piercing, she informed me that I should hold the Girl because she will probably sob and try to bolt from the store. I replied, “She’s been waiting for this her whole life; there’s no way she’s going anywhere.”
As promised by me to the Doubting Piercer, the Girl sat quietly for the procedure, uttering merely a quiet “Ow.” When finished, she asked, in the most matter-of-fact tone, “Are you done? I need to go buy make-up now.” A lip gloss was the other promised birthday treat.
I don’t know who had more fun on the birthday outing – me or the Girl. Some new sparkly earrings, a Godiva chocolate to ease the pain, and some shiny pink lip gloss for my spunky lady.
Here’s the Girl just prior to piercing:
And here she is modelling her new bling:
