Not that she cares what we think.

Not that she cares what any of us think, but Chrissy Teigen won’t be catching flack for piercing Luna’s ears. Infant and toddler ear piercing is always a hot topic, and that topic came up at the Forevermark Diamond Jewelry Tribute Collection Launch on Tuesday night.

“She doesn’t have her ears pierced and I’m going to let her decide when she wants to do that," Teigen said at the event, according to E! News.

And no, Teigen didn’t come to this conclusion after watching her friend Kim Kardashian get slammed for piercing North’s ears a few years back—or even after the more recent criticism involving Black Chyna piercing baby Dream’s ears. Apparently, this decision was born out of personal experience.

“I remember when I was little what I went through. My mom did it for me,” Teigen says, alluding to a less-than-positive experience.

There’s no right or wrong here—piercing your child’s ears is entirely a matter of parental preference. Weighing the pros and cons for your own baby? Check out our boards for opinions from both sides.
