Eyebrow piercing is a popular piercing type done on the edge of the eyebrow. This is one of the most common facial piercings and one of the most popular piercings in the world. There are many people who have eyebrow piercing as their only piercing. Eyebrow piercing is popular among all genders, ages and demographics. Since this piercing is so popular there are many jewelry pieces you can choose to go with it. A standard eyebrow piercing is done vertically through the outer ridge of the eyebrow. However, this is not the only possible placement and orientation. Many people request their eyebrow piercings to be done at a slight angle. There are also eyebrow piercings that are horizontal or done at the points of the eyebrow other than the outer edge. There is also a very different anti-eyebrow piercing, done above the cheek bone.
One important thing to remember about eyebrow piercings is that these are surface piercings. Unlike regular piercings, these do not go through different planes of the tissue; they merely go through the surface on the same skin layer. As a surface piercing, eyebrow piercing is more prone to certain problems, such as infections, migration and infection. Also, surface piercings are known to be less permanent than the other piercings. Despite these drawbacks, many people enjoy their eyebrow piercings for years without any problems.
