Shiloh and Zahara Jolie-Pitt are becoming little women.
Accompanied by mom Angelina Jolie, the 5 and 6-year-old sisters recently went to a small salon in London to get their ears pierced, according to The Sun.
"The eldest girl picked out some pretty 18-carat gold studs ad gave them to her mom," a source told the British newspaper.
"The piercing gun was a bit too painful for her and she screamed then burst into tears. She was saying it felt like a stapler, so her little sister changed her mind about having hers done."
Despite Shiloh's last-minute decision to opt out of the rite of passage, a source told The Sun that "they all left with big smiles on their faces."
The Jolie-Pitts are currently staying in London while patriarch Brad Pitt, 47, films World War Z. Jolie recently took Zahara and Shiloh -- along with 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne -- to visit Gwen Stefani's home for a playdate with Kingston, 5.
"All of the kids are very close in age," a source tells Us Weekly. "They've attended each other's birthday parties and gotten together several times at each other's homes."
