All You Need to Know About Eyebrow Piercings
Give an Edgy Touch to Your Personality with an Eyebrow Piercing
The first and most important thing when getting an eyebrow piercing is visiting a professional in the field. Do-It-Yourself is never an option. If you attempt to pierce your brow, the chances of infection and rejection increase. An expert piercer carries the correct equipment to get the job done at the ideal depth. Plus, normally, professionals work at a reputable piercing shop which will ensure you receive the service under the safest standards possible.
Once you have chosen a piercing shop in Colorado, you are ready to get an edgy touch to your personality. Here are your options:

Eyebrow Piercing Aftercare Tips
Once you get your brow pierced, the aftercare process must begin. At the shop, your piercer will give you a spray. And, just like any other piercing, you most likely have to wash it regularly with that product. To help the piercing hole (fistula) stay bacteria-free, you should do a saline wash. Use 1/4 tsp. of sea salt and 1 cup of warm bottled water to create the saline solution. Don’t forget to wash your hands before touching the piercing. It takes around 6 weeks for this type of piercing to heal.
Usually, you will get clear lymph. This is a substance your body naturally excretes when the healing wound drys to a whitish crust. Even if tempting, never twist, turn or slide your jewelry to break up the crust as you can push bacteria into the healing hole, leading to infection.
Overall, you should avoid touching your new piercing as much as possible and never use soap to clean it as it can cause dryness, delaying the healing process.
