How to Get an Anti-Eyebrow Piercing

Getting a anti brow piercings has become totally en vogue. Piercing has become about forging new ground and not getting the "same" piercing as everyone else. One hot piercing is called the "anti-eyebrow piercing." Located below the orbit of the eye on the upper cheekbone, it is usually decorated with custom bent surface bars or a curved barbell. Here's how to get this piercing.

Moderately Easy


things you'll need:

  • Needle
  • Barbell (or jewelry of choice)
  • Gauze
  • Disinfectant
  • Medical tape
    • 1
      Locate a trusted piercer who has performed an anti-eyebrow piercing before. This is not a simple ear piercing that mom does at home with a needle and an ice cube. Most tattoo parlors also offer piercings. Get a referral and know that the artist has performed this piercing in the past.
    • 2
      Inspect the piercing instruments and make sure they have been properly cleaned. This piercing is very deep and takes several months to heal. It also has a fairly high rejection rate, so make sure that the artist is using only sterilized equipment to prevent infection.
    • 3
      Clean the area of your upper cheek and skin area below the eye with a disinfectant or alcohol swab.
    • 4
      Clamp the skin with your fingers or piercing tool.
    • 5
      Insert the needle slowly through the skin. This should not be "jammed" in but slowly worked through the skin. Once the needle has completely made the hole, dab any blood away with gauze.
    • 6
      Insert a barbell, or curved barbell of choice into the pierced portion of the cheek. Again cover with gauze and hold until all bleeding has stopped.

Tips & Warnings

  • Bandage your piercing once completed with gauze and medical tape. This will aid the healing process. Also place a disinfectant like neosporin on the gauze each time you change it. You may experience bruising for 1 to 2 weeks.
  • Because of the nerves in the face, this piercing may cause muscle or nerve damage. Which is again why it needs to be performed by a professional.
