Remember your first ear piercing? Chances are it went down at a suburban Claire's. In the latest edition of "Stars, They're Just Like Us", Victoria Beckham did some mother-son bonding and took her oldest for his first piercing at a London Claire's location. Don't get confused: this trip wasn't about balling on a budget (they reportedly bought the most expensive earring in the store), but more about the right of passage that we're all so familiar with. Looks like Brooklyn is officially entering teendom.
