How young is too young?

A couple is suing the tattoo parlor where they took their daughter to get her ears pierced, and now a Berlin judge is set to make a decision on child ear-piercing August 31.

The now three-year-old "cried from an inordinate amount of pain" during the procedure, according to World Crunch, and three days later, a doctor's visit revealed she was reeling from a "traumatic reaction."

So who's to blame here?

Are the parents at fault for commissioning the piercing, or could the tattoo parlor have turned away the couple?

What do you think? How young is too young to get your ears pierced?
