While I offer no moral nor aesthetic judgment to would-be piercers, they should just be aware that today's trendy practices change in a blink. And while most piercings will close over time, there are medical risks.
In the last two weeks I've been called self-satisfied, sexist, smug, repulsive, trashy, disgusting, and just plain horrible. My crime? I pierced my six-month-old daughter's ears at the request of my Nicaraguan husband.
