What is the best age to pierce your daughter's ears?

I have often wondered this very thing in the past 5 years of my daughter's life. I thought it wasn't right to pierce her ears as a baby, so we decided that when she is ready to get them pierced, she can ask us. She did just that for the past 3 - 4 months! So, finally we decided that one weekend we will take her to Claire's to get her ears pierced. She is very excited.

Here's the starter kit collection that she can choose from at Claire's that I found online. She wants either the Hello Kitty earrings or the blue studs to start out. She is 5 and knows that she can't lay on them for awhile or play with them, and that we will help her clean them and rotate so that they don't get infected at all. 

I will be doing a You Tube video of her getting her ears pierced when I get the time. I plan on taking video with my phone and hoping that it loads right, so that I am able to do that.
