Learn the, er, in's and out's of any kind of piercing you're considering with these Howcast videos.
My name's Dana Dunn. I've been working in the piercing business going on 6 years now. I do typically about 3,000 to 4,000 a year. I work at Pins and Needles Tattoo. We have a website pinsandneedlesportland.com. Piercing is my life and I'm going to talk to you about body piercing. An eyebrow piercing is typically a 14 or 16 gauge piercing. It is a little bit difficult to take care, just because of where it is, your chance of rejection which is basically the migration of a piercing, your body just has its way of kind of forcing foreign objects out of your body and the way that the eyebrow is and the amount of hair particles and everything right there, it can be pushed out. It's just one of those things where you just need to take really good care of it. Swelling does typically tend to show on an eyebrow more than any other facial piercing; you could have bruising around it for the first few days. The eyebrow piercing, once it gets healed, the hole on that will not close up as soon as other ones will. So that one you can take actually take out for a long period of time and still be able to put something back in there, so that's one of those ones that will be around for a very long time if you take care of it well.
