I see no problem with it. I turned 13 in December, and I want my lip pierced. I don't see a problem with an extra piercing in the ear. Many people have that. At least she isn't talking about piercings in her eyebrows or other different facial piercings.
Youth is the best reason to get double pierced on the earlobes because if she changes her mind, the piercings can heal over quickly and imperceptibly, compared to piercings anywhere else on the body. The older you get, the less true this is.
One of my friends has had double piercings since fourth grade. I mean, come on, she didn't ask for a lip or naval or eyebrow piercing! I think it's totally fine, as long as it's a safe place to get piercings and your mom says it's fine!
Speaking from a Mother's point of view, 12 is a bit young for doubles, however, I would not say absolutely not. Take a picture if her, draw in a second set of earrings on her ears. Let her look at the picture for a week, if she is then absolutely sure, and you can convince your parents/guardians, then go for it.
Not your call my dear. Mom and Dad get to tell her what's ok and what isn't. I got one ear double pierced when I was twelve, and one ear single pierced. I'm not sure it really was a big factor in how my life turned out. (I'm very old by the way.) In the grand scheme of things this wasn't a big deal for me, but your PARENTS will get to decide how big of a deal it is for their kiddo.
It's her decision? Um she's only twelve she doesn't get to call the shots, it's up to the parents. But personally, I don't think she should. There's alot of people telling you ya it's fine but she's more likely going to want to get even more piercings as she ages which maybe a bad or good thing? It al depends.
I agree with neighborlylady that your parents get to call the shots here. Once she is old enough to work and drive herself from place to place then she can make more decisions on her own. Until then she's not mature enough to make that decision on her own.
