Mum of five shared a photo on her popular Facebook page of her twin girls getting their ears pierced. Of course the parenting police were quick to jump on her back, but fans weren’t gonna stand for it…
Katie Stauffer’s family is well known for their beautiful photography and funny videos that her twin daughters, Emma and Mila, make together.
With four million followers on Facebook and also over on Instagram the family is not shy when it comes to sharing their daily life.
A recent social media post was about the twins getting their ears pierced by a professional tattooist.
Of course people weren’t overly impressed, but her fans soon told them where to go…
Some comments slammed the mum over her choice:
“To each their own…but it doesn’t take a degree to piece ears….I’m sure he’s a very nice man. But I for one would never want my baby to look up at this man and let him put a hole in my child. This is so upsetting to me. How has this look become so Acceptable to almost everyone posting on here.”
“Tipping point for me. A man who has deformed his ears is piercing perfect, beautiful children’s ears, while she appears scared. WTF?”
Others said she made the right choice:
“Thank you for taking her to a piercing professional instead of a high school drop out at Clairs with a plastic gun!”
“I LOVE that you took them to a licensed piercer instead of the mall kiosk! So smart & the girls look adorable!!!”
“A Mom who knows her stuff. Always go to a professional piercer at a tattoo shop and not your local Walmart.”
“I read an article that explained tattoo parlors where piercing was offered was far superior to the old “store in the mall” type of place. The parlors are regulated and inspected, the equipment is sterilized and the person doing the piercing is typically a piercer first, not a store clerk”
“I’m so happy you went to a trained professional. The guns hurt your ears more and do more damage when piercing them. Looking good girls”
A couple of years ago we shared a story from a Mum explaining why she chose to have her daughter’s ears pierced at a tattoo parlour. Read that here.
Would you take your child to a tattoo parlour for their ear piercings?
