RISKS OF EYEBROW PIERCING: Some common eyebrow piercing risks are:

    INFECTION: Lack of care could lead to serious infections such as blood poisoning.

    ALLERGIC REACTION: Some people are allergic to a particular metal, so usage of such metals can lead to severe allergic reactions.

   NERVE DAMAGE: If a piercing is not positioned cautiously, it can penetrate a nerve, detaching it and making the adjoining area devoid of any sensation.


1)   VERTICAL EYEBROW PIERCING: This is a most popular type of eyebrow piercing that is done vertically on your eyebrow ridge. This piercing is usually performed on 35-degree angle from the side corner of your eye. This type of piercing is done just below or above the eyebrows.

2)   HORIZONTAL EYEBROW PIERCING: In horizontal eyebrow piercing, the jewelry is placed horizontally on someone’s upper eyebrow ridge. This is done commonly on the surface bar, thus making the surface bar go perpendicularly into someone’s skin.
