Eyebrow piercings are probably the most common facial piercings. Wondered what type of eyebrow piercing is available for you? Below is a list of different types of eyebrow piercings that are available to you, always ask your piercers first before getting them done.
Eyebrow piercings – This can be a piercing anywhere along the brow line on either side. It can be vertical (the most common) or horizontal.
Anti-Eyebrow piercings –Normally it is a small surface bar that is placed above the cheek bone or below the eyebrow. This piercing can be vertical or horizontal, depending on the person’s preference.
Eyelid Piercing – They are done through the eyelid, usually in the outside corner of the eye. They are quite uncommon due to the damage and risks they may cause. (Swelling, Pink Eye, Pain when opening/closing eye, Infection)
Brow piercings do have a habit of migrating if they’re not pierced deeply enough or the jewelry is too thin or heavy. They can be irritated by eyebrow hairs, so plucking the hairs closest to the entry points of the jewelry can be very helpful, especially if you’re experiencing swelling or tenderness in a healed piercing. Don’t use waxes or any other hair removers while you’re healing your piercing. Healing time can be all different depending on the person’s body and how they take care of them.
Typical jewelry for eyebrows would be the curved barbells, circular barbells, and captive bead rings.
TRUE FACT: Hairdressers have an uncanny knack for combing over brow piercings. It’s a good idea to cover it with a bandage to protect it while having you’re hair done, trust me, happened to me a lot of times, and boy do they hurt!

You just got your first piercing, and like most people, is now googling to know more about the piercing/healing process/etc. Below is a list of what can happen during your healing process, so don’t be alarmed. Please note: Go see your local piercer or a doctor if you do not see any improvements on the area you have gotten pierced.
- Initially: some bleeding, localized swelling, tenderness, or bruising.
- During healing: some discoloration, itching, secretion of a whitish-yellow fluid (not pus) that will form some crust on the jewelry. The tissue may tighten around the jewelry as it heals.
- Once healed: the jewelry may not move freely in the piercing; do not force it. If you fail to include cleaning your piercing as part of your daily hygiene routine, normal but smelly bodily secretions may accumulate.
- A piercing may seem healed before the healing process is complete. This is because they heal from the outside in, and although it feels fine, the tissue remains fragile on the inside. Be patient, and keep cleaning throughout the entire healing period.
- Even healed piercings can shrink or close in minutes after having been there for years! This varies from person to person: if you like your piercing, keep jewelry in–do not leave it empty.
