Complete guide to all the different types of eyebrow piercings

Never before have eyebrow piercings been so popular as they are today despite fading in and out of fashion from the 1970s.

The best part is that they’re equally as trendy among men as they are among women as an expressive piece of jewelry.

If you want to find the best fit for you, then take a look at the different types of eyebrow piercings:

Vertical types of Eyebrow Piercings

This is the typical eyebrow piercing that you would usually see and it’s that popular for a reason. It’s placed vertically through your eyebrow. It can be pierced anywhere along the ridge where you feel it would best suit you. The most common style is at a 35-degree angle from the outside corner of your eye. It’s easy to get pierced and gives off a great, clean look.

Another great part of getting a vertical piercing is that you don’t have to limit yourself to just one. Some people have gotten upwards of 10 piercings!

Horizontal types of Eyebrow Piercings

They’re similar to vertical piercings as they also usually involve a single piercing with 2 holes (one in and one out) along the upper ridge. The most popular style is a straight barbell placed on the outside corner of your eye giving a sleek and modern look.

If you want a cute piercing that doesn’t stand out too much, but still lets you make your statement then we recommend that you get a vertical or horizontal piercing for the best results. If you’re feeling a little more daring, then read on!

Spiral types of Eyebrow Piercings

This is the first of those types of eyebrow piercings that veer away from the normal. Unlike the previous 2 piercings which have one entry and exit points, a spiral piercing consists of a looping piece of jewelry that spirals through multiple consecutive holes. It’s piercing that allows you to stick out from the general eyebrow piercing crowd while also not going too wild.

Bridge types of Eyebrow Piercings

We’ve got to put it out there first: this piercing isn’t for everybody. It is created by piercing the thin part of the skin on the bridge of your nose, right between your eyes. In order to get this funky piercing, you need to have the right facial structure as it needs the skin between your eyes to be fleshy.

If you have tight skin in that area, it may heal crooked or the piercing may shift. Consult your piercer to find out if this is the right fit for you. If you can pull this off, it’ll definitely be a head turner!

Anti-eyebrow types of Eyebrow Piercings

As the name suggests, this piercing is located opposite to your eyebrow. It’s done below the eye and at the same distance that a standard eyebrow piercing would be above the eye. You can visualize where the piercing would be by feeling along the orbital bone under your eye as that is the usual location for an anti-eyebrow piercing. This is definitely one of the more gung-ho piercings styles on our lists. If you’ve got that personality that really wants to stand out of from the crowd, then the anti-eyebrow piercing is one of the best fashion statements.

Conclusions on Eyebrow Piercings

Eyebrow piercings offer a great way to deviate from the norm of ear piercings and spice things up. Each piercing can be tailored to fit your individuality and help you set your own fashion statement.
