Eyebrow Piercing



The eyebrow piercing has gone through a lot of exciting changes over the years. When they first came to light, society saw eyebrow piercings as something done by extreme body modification enthusiasts, which couldn't be further from the concept behind the eyebrow piercings of today.

Over time, eyebrow piercing became increasingly popular, with more people getting them for aesthetic reasons rather than just for "body modification." As the trend grew, so did the types of eyebrow piercings available.

From the traditional barbell style and the curved barbell to the more modern jewelry trends, such as the hoop and stud, there is now a variety of eyebrow piercing jewelry types out there to suit individual preferences.

Eyebrow piercings have shown up in fashion and popular culture over the years, including gracing the covers of magazines and various pop-culture music videos.

Overall, the eyebrow piercing continues to evolve as an ever-changing fashion trend that shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Jewelry Options Your piercer will guide you through the exciting process of selecting your favourite piece of jewelry. Eyebrow piercing jewelry style options include: captive bead rings, regular and curved barbells. Black Line Studio does not advise removal of jewelry for at least 4 to 6 weeks post your piercing service. Whether before or after the piercing is completely healed, when it comes to changing the jewelry, we recommend that you consult with your piercer.

Eyebrow Piercing Aftercare

Aftercare When following Black Line Studio’s after care protocol, the healing time for an eyebrow piercing is typically 3 to 4 months.

To care for your standard or horizontal eyebrow piercing, make sure to clean the piercing site twice daily with a saline solution or a mild, fragrance-free liquid soap. Gently pat the area dry with a clean paper towel or a cotton pad, and apply a thin layer of a fragrance-free, hypoallergenic moisturizing product to keep it from drying.

Avoid touching the piercing site unless you are cleaning it, and avoid using harsh skin care products on or near the piercing site, such as exfoliants and toners. Change your pillowcases regularly to prevent bacteria and dead skin from building up.

It’s also important to avoid activities that put a lot of friction on the piercing site, such as swimming or playing contact sports, as this can cause irritation or infection.

Eyebrow Piercing FAQs

How long an eyebrow piercing will last depends on many variables, such as body chemistry and how well you care for your piercings. Eyebrow piercings tend to migrate toward the surface of the skin over time, but with proper care, they can last anywhere from six months to several years.

We cannot guarantee that your eyebrow piercing will last as long as you'd like, and that time frame varies for everyone. However, if you care for it correctly, you'll have it for at least six months, typically much longer. Most people do end up with an eyebrow-piercing scar.

Eyebrow piercings are generally more difficult to heal than other piercings due to their location and the amount of movement that takes place in that area. It is essential to follow all aftercare instructions provided by the piercer and to clean the piercing area regularly to help ensure a successful healing process.

Take care when getting dressed or undressed, and avoid wearing anything that fits over your face for at least six weeks. You can always talk to your piercer about your lifestyle and see what actions they recommend you take (beyond standard aftercare) when it comes to helping your new piercing heal.

Eyebrow piercing rejection is a hot topic and a significant concern among many of the clients we see. It's not unheard of for eyebrow rings to reject, meaning the body will push out the jewelry over time.

Rejection rates are typically higher for eyebrow piercings, since this area of the body experiences a lot of movement and friction. The location is very flat and thin, with piercings sitting close to the outer skin layers.

If eyebrow piercing rejection concerns you, we advise that you know it's possible, but don't let it stop you from getting the piercing you genuinely want.
