Vertical piercing

When the piercing is placed vertically, it could be spread on to the whole eyebrow. It inclines to movement because it is a surface piercing. The perforation is a little bit painful. For faster healing, it should be coated with an antibiotic for two weeks. It is also good to be coated before bathing.

Horizontal piercing

It could also be made on the whole eyebrow, but it is horizontally placed. The healing process is the same as by the vertical piercing. They both heal for 6 to 8 weeks. Makeup should be avoided, because it might cause an infection and slow down the healing process.

Anti piercing

Although this piercing is not placed on the eyebrows, it is in the same group. It is situated right beyond the eye orbit, on the top of the cheekbones. It’s a surface piercing and it is made on a very small amount of skin.

Bridge piercing

It is a horizontal piercing and a surface piercing. It is made between the eyes. It is done very hard and only good professionals could make it. It does not interfere the wearing of glasses. Its healing process lasts from 8 to 12 weeks.
