What is an Eyebrow Piercing?
Eyebrow piercings are typically done on the outside portion of the eyebrow, vertically placed, and done at the slightest angle. Eyebrow piercings are done with a bent barbell, and while they are in an obvious spot, they can add an ethereal quality to your look.
Types of Eyebrow Piercings
Vertical eyebrow piercings are the most popular and the standard piercing placement people think of when they think eyebrow piercing. The jewelry is placed so there is one bead above the eyebrow, and one bead below, although some people have higher brows so placement is very much dependent on the anatomy and eyebrow placement of the person getting the piercing. We do these piercings with a curved barbell but it can pierced with a hoop or horseshoe as well.
Horizontal eyebrow piercings are a similar concept to vertical, but rather than straddling the eyebrow, it is typically done directly above or below the brow line, still with a bent barbell, although a surface bar or dermal anchors can be used if there is enough tissue depth. These are considered surface piercings and do have a higher chance of rejection than a cartilage or nostril piercing. Some people have them for months, others for years, it all depends on your body.
Double eyebrow piercings are a recent trend. It’s a unique look and is sure to inspire others with how great it looks. The best part is that you can do aftercare on both and heal them at the same time. Swelling can be pronounced in any area where piercings are placed close together, so careful and consistent aftercare is need if you decide to go with a double eyebrow.
