All About Piercing
Piercing usually refers to the piercing of a part of the human body for the purpose of wearing jewelry in the opening created. Body piercing is a form of body modification. The word "piercing" can refer to the act or practice of body piercing, or to a specific pierced opening in the body.
Some people practice piercing for religious or other cultural reasons, while many individuals, particularly in the modern West, choose to be pierced for spiritual, ornamental, or sexual reasons.
An eyebrow piercing is a type of body piercing done
through the eyebrow, usually vertically. Eyebrow piercings are
relatively common facial piercings. They may be pierced anywhere
along the eyebrow from directly above the eye to the edge of
Eyebrow piercings are a type of surface piercing and share the risk of migration and aftercare issues that all surface piercings have. Usually they take 6-8 weeks to heal, but they are easily irritated, often by casual contact on the part of the bearer, which can lead to much longer healing times or migration. Makeup or other beauty products that are applied to the face can also irritate the piercing or cause it to become infected.
Eyebrow Piercing Jewelry
Barbells, curved barbells and captive bead rings are all common jewellery types worn in eyebrow piercings. All of these jewellery types put varying degrees of pressure on the piercing, which can cause irritation or migration over time, especially in fresh piercings. Unlike many other surface piercings, surface bars or other appropriate jewellery is not always used in the initial piercing, and the use of more commonly available body piercing jewellery often creates an unnecessarily large risk of migration or rejection in eyebrow piercings.
