Your Easy and Practical Guide to Eyebrow Piercing
Get an edgy look and draw more attention to your eyes. How about committing to an eyebrow piercing for a new look? Here’s a quick and easy guide to help you get started.
What are the different kinds of eyebrow piercings?
As indicated by the position it has got, eyebrow piercing can be classified into various types: Horizontal eyebrow piercing is horizontally situated over the eyebrow, following its line; Bridge piercing is on the segment of skin between the highest point of your nose and your eyes, which is pierced; Anti-eyebrow piercing is performed marginally below the sub-par eye circle, ideal on the upper cheekbone; the T eyebrow piercing shows an ordinary vertical and a horizontal piercing.
Getting your brows pierced
The most important thing is to find a professional piercer you can trust, and let him or her do the procedure for you. A 16-12 gauge captive bead ring or mini curved barbell is recommended for a new piercing. Ideally, you can change your jewelry after about 6 weeks if you haven't had any issues with the piercing, but it won't be considered fully healed (inside and out) for about 3 months.
Taking care of your pierced area
The eyebrow piercing can take as much as six weeks or even longer to heal completely. Some people may even take longer than this to heal completely.
Now, here’s an easy way to clean the pierced area. Use a cotton ball to apply saline solution, holding it against the area for 2-3 minutes. Afterwards, clean the piercing area with water and a bit of antibacterial soap. Rinse off the soap thoroughly, then gently dry the piercing with a soft towel or a piece of tissue. You can also apply a piercing aftercare gel with a q-tip, and use this to remove any remaining crusting on the pierced area.
What kind of jewelry to use?
The jewelry that is most used for eyebrow piercing include eyebrow rings, curved barbells and also hoops. Make sure to use good quality jewelry to ensure that the risk of infections or any other resultant problems can be avoided. It is always best to keep away from the cheaper and often riskier pieces of jewelry on such sensitive areas.
