PIERCING MY OWN EYEBROW
How to Pierce Your Eyebrow
Sterilize your equipment.First, boil your needle for five to ten minutes on a stove. Keep your needle and your jewelry in rubbing alcohol. If you have newly bought them, this might not be necessary, as they would already be sterile, but it is highly recommended that you sterilize them too, just to be on the safe side.
Locate where you want your eyebrow piercing.Evenly mark two points using a pen or a marker, wherever you want your piercing to be.
If you have a low tolerance for pain, you might want to numb the area with the aid of an ice cube or numbing gel.The numbing gel is a better option, as ice only numbs the first layer of skin, and in addition to that, it tightens the pores of the skin, making it harder for the hollow needle to go through.
Pinch the skin between the two points that you marked, using a clamp, or your other hand.Pull the skin out, away from the eye.
Poke the needle through from one point to the other.Push the needle out from the other point.
Gently remove the needle from your eyebrow and then insert and fasten your chosen jewelry.
Do not remove your jewelry for a minimum of two months.Clean it daily with rubbing alcohol or a saline solution.
QuestionHow badly does it hurt when it goes through and the numbing is gone?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt depends on one's pain tolerance. Because an eyebrow piercing is a surface piercing and doesn't go through any cartilage, it doesn't hurt too much, at least in comparison to other types of piercings.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use any kind of needle?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, but a needle designed for piercings is ideal.Thanks!
QuestionWhat type of jewelry is not ideal for eyebrow piercing?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerAnything that is not curved (like a straight barbell) will not work with an eyebrow piercing. Also, captive bead rings are not great because they move around a lot, which makes it more difficult for your piercing to heal. Ideally, a long, curved barbell would be best to allow swelling without causing too much trauma from moving around.Thanks!
QuestionWhat size needle do I need for piercing my eyebrow?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerUsually a 14 gauge needle, as you put in 16 gauge jewelry. It also helps to use the 14 gauge hollow needle, as then you can slide the jewelry into the needle so it follows through to the other side.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use a mini hoop earring?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNot recommended. Using a curved barbell would work best until the piercing is fully healed.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I use a piercing gun to do my eyebrow?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt is not very safe to use a gun on your eyebrow. You should use a needle.Thanks!
QuestionWhat's the smallest gauge for an eyebrow piercing?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThe smallest most piercers will do is a 16g hole, but 14g is recommended to prevent migration.Thanks!
QuestionIs there a specific place to pierce my eyebrow so I don't hit veins?ThatPleb 101Community AnswerAre you piercing it yourself? Since an eyebrow piercing is a surface piercing, you shouldn't hit any veins. Place it wherever you want on your eyebrow, but don't pierce it too deep or too shallowly.Thanks!
QuestionDoes piercing your eyebrow feel any different from piercing your ear?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, it may hurt a bit more or less, depending on your sensitivities.Thanks!
QuestionIs it safe to pierce my eyebrow at home?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt's not a great idea to pierce your own eyebrow at home unless you are a trained professional.Thanks!

- Do not use stainless steel for this piercing, as it is a surface piercing and it can reject very easily. Use titanium or niobium. Jewelry made out of these two materials have a lesser chance of getting rejected.
- This may just be common sense, but wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap before you pierce yourself.
- Get a professional to do the job for you.
- Try to use surgical steel as your first jewelry. You can also use gold, but when you put in another material (once it's healed), the piercing will emit puss.
- Beware of infections. Clean your piercing every day to avoid infection. Infections near the eye and close to sensitive brain tissue are particularly dangerous.
- Being a surface piercing, an eyebrow piercing can reject or migrate.
- If you slip whilst attempting to perform this piercing, there is a real risk of stabbing yourself in the eye and causing irreparable damage.
- If your piercing does, in fact, get infected, then refrain from taking it out. Show it to a doctor as soon as possible.
