The anti eyebrow piercing is one that is another unique addition to the body modification look. 

There are many different names given to the anti eyebrow piercing, including:
  • High Cheek Piercing
  • Teardrop Piercing
  • Tears
This alternative style that is the anti eyebrow piercing has become a desirable body piercing and has been rising in popularity in recent years. With their popularity growing immensely many people are experiencing the backlash of not having it pierced by a professional, which is why we advise that you seek professional advice before getting your anti eyebrow piercing done.


The placement of the anti-brow piercing is just above the cheek bone or below the eyebrow and is known as a surface piercing. 

There are two different ways for this piercing to be performed, either, the professional can use the standard clamp and pierce technique or they can use the dermal punch and taper method. However the piercer decides to perform this piercing, they need to ensure that it is placed correctly and facial nerves and muscles should be manipulated for the perfect placement. If the anti eyebrow piercing is correctly placed it reduces pain and minimises the chance of extreme migration.


When the anti eyebrow piercing procedure is complete it is best to treat it with warm salt water and compresses, this ensures that fluid doesn’t get trapped in the middle of the piercing. It should take a few months for the anti eyebrow piercing to heal properly, however it may bruise due to the soft area that it is placed in.


If the placement of the piercing is incorrect or the wrong jewellery has been used, the piercing may be rejected. However, if a professional piercer is used to perform, there should be no difficulties with the piercing. The correct jewellery to pick for an anti eyebrow would be a custom bent surface bar but many people use curved barbells or L shaped bars.
