Eyebrow piercings are usually done vertically through the eyebrow.
It is up to each individual person where about on the eyebrow they would like the piercing to be. Generally a ring is the most common type of jewellery to go inside an eyebrow piercing.
This type of piercing is quite common and it is quite easy to care for too. You follow the same procedure as you would with ear piercings and they usually take only 6-8 weeks to heal properly.
What to Consider
Whilst an eyebrow piercing can look really good, there are some things that you need to think about before going ahead and having one done. Firstly you need to be aware of the fact that there is a chance that the piercing will grow out and leave a scar. This is not usually a big deal for most people but it is still something that you need to think about.
The piercing itself will usually be done at an angle. This ensures that the eyebrow ring hangs properly without getting in the way. If you want to avoid the piercing closing up then you should leave the jewellery in at all times. Once the piercing has healed and you remove the jewellery, it will not take long for it to close back up again.
It is uncommon but there are occasions where you could end up with an infection in the piercing. This mainly occurs when the piercer hasn’t used properly sterilised equipment. If you are unlucky enough to develop an infection then you will experience pain and swelling. However, as mentioned an infection is quite rare and it can usually be avoided if you choose a good piercer.
The only other problem you could experience from an eyebrow piercing is that they are not always accepted socially. For whatever reason, eyebrow piercings do sometimes cause offense and this is something that you may have to put up with. You know – your boss might be a bit old-fashioned and so on…
But overall an eyebrow piercing is quite a common type of piercing these days. They can look really good and they are excellent for those looking to make a statement!
