PIERCINGS - Eyebrow Piercings

 

So you're thinking about getting an eyebrow ring. Here is all the information you need to know so you are well-informed and feel confident when you get your new piercing or want to change out your jewelry.

The best jewelry to use for an initial eyebrow piercing is a 16 gauge curved barbell made of high-grade titanium, 14k gold, or 18k gold. Never use jewelry smaller than recommended by your piercer since it will increase your risk of jewelry rejection and skin damage.

The length of your barbell will vary depending on how thick your eyebrow is; the standard length is 5/16", but 3/8" and 7/16" barbells are commonly used as well. It should be at least 1/8" wider than your actual piercing.

Placement: Your piercer will mark the location of the piercing so you can see if you are happy with the placement. It will be done at an angle from the corner of the eye so that it sits better on the face. Once you’ve agreed, it’s time to pierce.

 

Rejection: Since an eyebrow piercing is a surface piercing, it has a higher chance of migrating out of the body or being rejected.

Your piercing is healed. Time to shop for new eyebrow jewelry!

Yes! It's finally healed! May the fun begin! It's always exciting getting rid of the initial jewelry and shopping for a new styles. 

When shopping for a new eyebrow ring, you want to look for 14G or 16G eyebrow piercing jewelry with a length of 1/4" (short), 5/16" (standard), or 3/8" (long). Check our our body jewelry measuring guide to help you out. 

You want to get an eyebrow ring that won't compromise the health of your fresh piercing. It's best to go for 14k gold, 18k gold, platinum, or titanium body jewelry  because these materials tend to have fewer additives that your body might react to. Our gold is nickel-free for that very reason.
