from memory (very scetchy) it doesn't hurt that much, but the "bang" of the piercing gun is really scary because is like 500 times louder that close to your ear. Mind you I was a complete wuss and made my younger sis go first once we had got there
The only problem with having them done and then taking them out is that the holes are still there and can be visible. All my extra ones I can STILL get earrings into even after about 4 years.
Whatever way you go, I'm sure it's not going to make all that much difference in the big picture. If you don't pierce them she's not going to say "Mum I hate you for not having my ears pierced when I was 2" and if you do, I don't think she'll say "Mum I hate you for getting them pierced". Well, excepting a certain point of her teenage years when she is likely to tell you she hates you for everything - you'll probably get the blame for the whole of life's unfairness, or was that just me? Anyway, point being, she's going to know you love her regardless.
