Would you let your 3yo SON....

get his ears pierced? My 3 yo son wants his ears pierced. He is now officially the only member of our family that doesn't have their ears pierced (although I do not wear earrings) and ever since YDD who is 9 months old got her ears pierced he wants his done. He asks a few times a day and I am actually kinda torn.
We are what I guess would be considered an alternative type of family so tattooes and piercings are things both my husband and I have and I have no problem with guys having their ears pierced (obviously since my husband has his pierced) I guess I just don't know what I am looking for, I just don't know how to handle it. let him get them pierced or don't and make him wait...but until when?

ETA: Keep in mind in this situation both of my girls have their ears pierced. DD1 had hers done at 2 months old and YDD just recently got hers done at 9 months old. DS is the middle child and he is 3.
Though we have the courage to raise our daughters more like our sons, we've rarely had the courage to raise our sons like our daughters. -Gloria Steinem
