Eyebrow piercings are popular, easy to heal and really make a statement. They are pierced vertically through the eyebrow and can be placed anywhere between the centre of the eye socket and the outer edge of the eyebrow. The three major supra-orbital nerves are located inwards of the centre of the eye socket, so placing an eyebrow piercing in this area could damage them. Eyebrow piercings can be pierced with small curved barbells or BCRs. We usually recommend getting pierced with a curved barbell, as they are less likely to get caught on clothing than a BCR. You can change to a BCR once your piercing is fully healed if you wish.
How To Care For New Eyebrow Piercings
Like most piercings, eyebrow piercings must be kept clean and dry throughout the healing period. Clean your piercing twice daily with saline and avoid submerging it in water. Most eyebrow piercings heal within four to eight weeks. Your healed eyebrow piercing requires very little care – just clean with saline as needed.
You should also take extra care to avoid knocking the piercing. Eyebrow piercings are particularly vulnerable to migration and knocks can lead to migration or rejection even in a healed piercing. Despite this, most eyebrow piercings do not reject, it is often simply a case of bad luck! A rejecting eyebrow piercing will scar if left to reject, so it is important to consult your piercer. It is often better to retire the piercing than let it reject and scar. The most common signs of eyebrow piercing rejection are:
Constant soreness or sensitivity
Red scar tissue forming around the piercing holes
The skin over the piercing becomes thinner – you may eventually be able to see the jewellery through the skin
The piercing holes appear bigger
Jewellery hangs loosely or at a different angle
If you observe any of these signs in your eyebrow piercing, consult your piercer immediately – regardless of whether your piercing is healed or not.

Piercing jewellery needn’t be expensive and now you can find an amazing range of cheap piercing jewellery that doesn’t compromise on quality. After all, poor quality piercing jewellery can irritate your piercings or even stop them healing, so itâ€™s just not worth settling to anything less than the best. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have an excellent choice of cheap piercing jewellery under Â£5, including the most popular designs and top quality materials for less.
Cheap Navel Piercing Jewellery
Navel piercings are very popular, which means that there is a huge choice of cheap navel piercing jewellery out there. Plain surgical steel bananabells are always good value for money but if you want to make more of a style statement without breaking the bank, there are a few things to look out for. PMMA acrylic is one of the cheapest materials for piercing jewellery but it is very comfortable to wear. I recommend an all-acrylic bananabell like the blue one below, or one with a steel stem and acrylic balls, like the neon purple one. Both of these bars are excellent quality but still under Â£3.
Most schools do not allow eyebrow piercings and they are frowned on by most workplaces too. As much as I love eyebrow piercings, it’s easy to see why employers and teachers object to them so much – they are highly visible and noticeable. Despite how noticeable eyebrow piercings are, they can be hidden by using an eyebrow retainer.
An eyebrow retainer will make your piercing much more discrete and most schools will allow you to keep your piercing as long as you wear an eyebrow retainer. Most eyebrow retainers are really cheap, so you can pick up a few spares or experiment with different types to find the right one for you.
Treat yourself to something extra special with a gold eyebrow ring. Gold eyebrow rings are the last word in luxury piercing jewellery, giving you a choice of solid gold, gold plated eyebrow rings or other metals. Gold is an excellent material for piercing jewellery. It is non-reactive and wonâ€™t irritate your skin, although I recommend that you wear titanium or BioFlex jewellery until your eyebrow piercing is healed and then switch over to a gold eyebrow ring.
There are two basic types of gold eyebrow ring â€“ ball closure rings and circular barbells. Ball closure rings form a complete ring and close by way of a captive ball; whereas circular barbells are horseshoe-shaped piercing bars with a ball that screws onto either end. The type you chose depends not only on your anatomy but the look that you want to create but either way a gold eyebrow ring is a great way to show off your piercing.
18ct Gold Eyebrow Rings
An 18ct gold eyebrow ring gives you the luxurious shine of gold and truly superior quality for your eyebrow ring. 18ct gold is an excellent material for healed eyebrow piercings â€“ just as it is for gold earrings. These eyebrow rings come in a variety of styles but here are my favourites:
Eye brow barbells are a special type of small, curved barbell that is especially designed for eyebrow piercings. Eyebrow bars are actually a type of bananabell – they are the same shape, only much smaller. Most eyebrow piercings are done with a curved needle, so you will probably find it more comfortable to wear a curved barbell in your eyebrow piercing.
You can find eye brow barbells in a huge range of designs and funky colours. This makes it easy to make a statement, keep your piercing looking subtle or update your look. In this post I have outlined some of the most popular types of eye brow barbell but the choice is endless â€“ as long as itâ€™s the right size you can wear ANY eye brow barbell in your piercing.
Steel Eye Brow Barbells
Steel eye brow barbells are cheap and come in lots of designs, making them a popular choice for most people with an eyebrow piercing. These eye brow barbells are made from surgical steel and for the best fit, always make sure your steel eyebrow bar is made from 316L surgical steel. This type of steel is of superior quality and less likely to irritate your skin.
