My daughter was almost 11 months old and everyone in the family was pushing me to get her ears pierced. As it is customary in our family to get a piercing done at a jewellery store, I took my daughter to a nearby Jeweller. I was tense because I knew my daughter would cry a lot during the piercing. At the Jewellery store the sales associate asked me to select an Inverness piercing earring from a huge variety of designs and assured me that the piercing process was virtually painless. The entire piercing process took less than a minute. I was shocked that my daughter was calm during the piercing and did not complain of any pain either. Things have changed so much since I got my ears pierced with a gold wire.
