You may find that there is no scientific reason girls and boys pierce their ears, it is just for glamour reasons. It is not dangerous and you don't get a disease from it. The worst that can happen is that it gets infected, you have to let it heal and let it heal again.

Girls pierce ears for fashion or cultural reason. There is no scientific reason for it.

When ears are pierced, the earring is less likely to be painful to wear. Those who do not have pierced ears must wear a pinch type earring which can hurt the ear. Piercing the ear gives a means to "hang" the earring in a substantial bit of fat. It is less painful than the alternative.
