Eyebrow piercing is a type of surface piercing which is gaining a lot of popularity. As the position of the stud is not fixed, you can experiment with the placement of the piercing. This type of piercing generally takes six to eight weeks to heal. Barbells, rings, and hoops are common jewelry choice for eyebrow piercing.
Horizontal Eyebrow Piercing
This piercing is done horizontally along the line of the eyebrow, above the upper brow ridge.
Vertical Eyebrow Piercing
This is the most common eyebrow piercing style, where the piercing is done vertically, through the ridge of the eyebrow.
This is done on the upper cheekbone, just below the eye.
Nose piercing is one of the most common facial piercings. In some Asian and Middle-Eastern countries, nose piercing is regarded as a part of tradition. Healing time for nose piercings range from about three to six months. Nostril piercing has to be cleaned regularly as there are very high chances of infection. Rings, studs and barbells are the most popular jewelry for such piercings.
The most common and popular form of nose piercing is nostril piercing. It is done on the left or right side of the nose.
It is a less common form of piercing, where the the piercing is done on the soft cartilage that separates the nostrils. It is also called bull nose piercing.
When the piercing is done on both sides of the bridge of the nose, it is known as bridge piercing. Barbells are commonly used as jewelry.
In this type of piercing, three different points of the nose is pierced, the left nostril, the right nostril and the septum. A single piece of barbell jewelry is used for such a piercing. I do not do this piercing because of the severe damage it does to the septal cartilage.
Lip piercings are done on the lips or in the area surrounding the lips. Depending upon the position of the piercing, different names are given to these piercings. Lip piercing is usually done with a 16 or 14 gauge surgical steel flatback barbell. Such piercings can take anywhere between two to four months to fully heal.
It is a piercing that is done on left hand side of the upper lip, slightly off-center.
A piercing that is done just above the cupid bow of the lip is known as Medusa piercing.
It is a piercing that is done on the right hand side of the upper lip, slightly off-center.
The site of this piercing is just opposite to Medusa piercing, i.e. it is done below the center of the lower lip.
This piercing is done vertically, directly through the lip. In this piercing, both ends of the stud are seen.
The upper lip is pierced, just above the Cupid's bow. It is usually adorned with a curved barbell and the lower part of the barbell is curved under the upper lip.
Bites refer to two piercings done on either side of the lip or at the top and bottom. They look like insect bites, hence the name.
Other Face Piercings
Cheek piercings are often done to fake a dimple. They can be done on one or both cheeks. Cheek piercings take six to eight weeks to heal. We do not do cheek/dimple piercings because of the risk of damaging nerves, vessels, and parotid ducts.
Ear piercings are not strictly facial piercings, as they are not on the face. However they are quite popular. There are more than 10 different types of ear piercings! Here is a list of some of the common ear piercings.
Ear Lobe Piercing:
Ear lobe piercing is extremely common and has been prevalent since centuries. Ear lobe piercing can be done on both ears or one ear. Healing time for such piercing is six to eight weeks.
Helix piercing is done on the outer ridge, on the upper part of the ear (generally the cartilage). Helix piercing can take six to eight months to heal.
Piercing done on the upper part of the ear, from one cartilage to the other, is called industrial piercing. The two piercings are connected with a single barbell. Six to twelve months are required for an industrial piercing to heal. It can be quite painful, so extra care has to be taken.
Rook piercing is done in the inner upper part of the ear, namely the anti-helix. Rook piercing can hurt a lot as the flesh at the anti-helix is thick. Rook piercing takes four to nine months to heal.
For daith piercing, the inner cartilage, below the rook, is pierced. Daith piercing is uncommon. The healing time for daith piercing may vary from seven to twelve months. It is commonly pierced with sixteen gauge surgical steel captive bead ring.
Tragus piercing is placed on the outer ear, which projects in front of the ear canal. It take about four to twelve months to heal.
Anti-tragus piercing is done opposite the tragus, i.e. the cartilage inside the ear just above the ear lobe. Anti-tragus piercings can take about a year to heal.
Conch piercing got its name from the conch shell. This piercing is done in two locations, namely, inner conch and outer conch. The outer conch is done on the outer rim of the ear, above the ear lobe. The location of the inner conch piercing is at the center of the ear. It takes around a year for such piercings to heal.
Tongue piercings are gaining popularity and such piercings are generally placed in the middle of the tongue. Barbells are used as jewelry for tongue piercing. Tongue piercing has to be done by a professional piercer, or the probability of infection increases.
Smiley piercing is done inside the upper lip, on the thin connective tissue above the gums. This piercing is given the name smiley since it is visible only when you smile. Healing time ranges from six to eight weeks.
