I’ve been getting quite a bit of comments and questions lately regarding anti-eyebrow piercings. Your first thought might be, exactly what is an anti-eyebrow piercing? An anti-eyebrow piercing doesn’t actually have anything to do with your eyebrow, it is actually a high cheek piercing usually set at a 45 degree angle just below the eye. Typically with the lower ball of the jewelry sticking out further then the top, but has been successfully applied the other way around, as well as some other slight variations of the normal placement.
Types Of Jewelry Used
An anti-eyebrow piercing is of course a surface piercing so the best method is to use a surface barbel although I have seen anti-eyebrow piercings successfully healed with just standard curved barbels.
Is It Safe?
Anti-eyebrow piercings are just as safe as any other piercing as long as they are performed by a qualified piercer and the proper care steps are taken to heal the piercing. You must be aware that surface piercings are one of the most difficult types of piercings to heal and are very prone to migration or rejection.
As with most surface piercings, I don’t know many people who have managed to keep an anti-eyebrow piercing intact without incident for longer then a year or two, with most showing signs of migration or rejection after only a few months.
The Bottom Line
Anti-eyebrow piercings are cool and will instantly grab attention of the average passer by. If you get one it is likely that you will end up removing it to avoid associated problems, but you also run that risk with any body piercing.
