Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter North West was pictured wearing a nose ring and bindi in images taken at her great-grandmother’s birthday party.
The six-year-old posed with her aunts Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian and cousins Penelope Disick and True Thompson in a series of photos shared on Instagram by Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, 63.
In the black and white image, North is wearing an adhesive bindi and fake nose ring, as well as hoops.
North is already well known to have her ears pierced: she was pictured wearing diamonds in her earlobes when she was one year old.
But the nose ring is a fake – a fact Kim herself clarified in her Instagram story, while also sharing a photo with her daughter.
Not everyone was on board with the look.
“Look North,” one user wrote in the comments section.
“Kim [sic]let the north grow too fast dark makeup / lipstick now smh piercings [shaking my head]Another read.
“I’m crying because North is wearing a bindi!” Another user commented.
A number of Twitter users were also pissed off at North’s accessories, with some not realizing the nose ring wasn’t real.
Kim has been criticized in the past for allowing her daughter to make certain fashion and beauty choices.
At five years old, North wore black lipstick at a church service, making people say she was too young to wear makeup.
There was also the controversy around Kim Straightening North’s Naturally Curly Hair Before Her Fifth Birthday.
Elsewhere, there is an ongoing debate as to whether babies and toddlers should have their ears pierced. Recently there has been outrage Hilary Duff’s decision to pierce her 8-month-old daughter’s ears, with a damning idea of ”causing unnecessary pain”.
Meanwhile, others believe it is the prerogative of parents to make choices for their children.
