    So ppl - parents or otherwise - is ear piercing appropriate for sons as well as for daughters?

    Otherwise stated, if a son as well as a daughter wanted it, what would you say in the end?

    I saw this quote, FYI:

    My husband has his ear pierced. I think it is strange to see a man with more then one ear pierced. And Id rather not see an earring at all in a man. For a girl, it has always been a bit of a tradition in my family. My daughter has her ears pierced. I have mine pierced, but hardly ever wear them. She can decide when she is older. For now they are cute on her and people don't think she is a boy. Lol.

    But there is a couple older ones at my church who get on to me once in awhile about having my daughter's ears pierced, because they believe it is sinful Didn't Isaac give Rachel bracelets and a nose ring?

    Thanks for your comments!

    (Did you see the poll also? :) )

    I'm sure that by now you've gotten accustomed to your husband's earring, right?

    Yrs even for a girl. But they are in their 80's. Almost 90. I believe it is more of a generational thing.

    Well, the OP has a quote which shows just how widespread it is in some areas for sons and dads.

    It can be good to do, I guess, right?

    In the ancient world, wearing gold and jewels was a way of storing wealth on one's person. (One never knew when one might have to flee from invading marauders.) I say that we have freedom so "all things are permitted" but not everything is good if it offends a brother or sister. In general, there is a lot of the world which has invaded the church (instead of the opposite, which is what I think the Lord called us to do).

    Thanks for your comment! You so often seem to provide thoughtful posts!

    (Did you see the poll also? )

    I would hasten to add that I wasn't particularly thinking of ostentatious / expensive jewelry. For example, the simple studding of earlobes can be done inexpensively and quite modestly; and in general terms if at a reasonable age a son as well as a daughter want to do this very widespread practice, I wouldn't particularly think it was problematic, would you?

    But I guess it's do to with subjective family customs and preferences to some extent.

    Just the compelling perforation for men and boys to express their individuality, right? :)
