How Old Do You Have To Be To Get Your Ears Pierced

Actually, there is no limitation of the age to get your ears pierced, but some people suggest that you have to be 18 years old. This is dealing with the legal age,  but it might change depending on the state where you live in.

Some clinics usually ask their customers to provide written consent to get their ears pierced, and a parent permission or guardians for those who are still under the age of 18 before their ears pierced.

How Much Does It Cost to Get Your Ears Pierced?

The cost of ear piercing may vary, depending on location, jewelry types and many others. But, according to some sources that I have ever read, ear piercings prices are about £12-£25 roughly. This is going by piercing shop prices, and they would charge more as they use needles rather than guns.

It has to be kept in mind that I would never advise a piercing with a gun since reputable shops will not use guns.
