Inside: Anti Eyebrow Piercing Ideas {The Butterfly Kiss}.

Want to step up your piercing game with a unique new look? An anti-eyebrow piercing might be exactly what you’re looking for, and we’re here to tell you all about them!

Anti-eyebrow piercings are a type of surface piercing, which means it sits on the surface of your skin. They are pretty much the opposite of eyebrow piercings and are also known as teardrop piercings or a butterfly piercings.

In this round-up we are talking all about anti-eyebrow piercing, we’ll go over the piercing’s location, the piercing process, the healing time, recommended jewelry, and so much more.

Anti Eyebrow Piercing Ideas

What is an Anti Eyebrow Piercing?

This piercing is a piercing located on the surface of your face, just above your cheekbone.

This piercing, which is also known as a butterfly or a teardrop piercing, usually sits directly below the location where eyebrow piercings go. It is a surface piercing and requires a special method of piercing that should only be done by experienced professionals.

They are typically placed diagonally, slanting away from the eyeball.

How Much is an Anti Eyebrow Piercing?

It will depend upon the piercing studio, but you can expect to pay between $40 – $60 on the anti-eyebrow piercing, not including the jewelry. Since the anti-eyebrow piercing is located on the face, you want to make sure that you choose high-quality metals that have no alloys that might irritate your skin. Common options are implant-grade titanium and 14k gold.

You should also choose a piercer with lots of experience, even if they’re more expensive. The main cause of surface piercing rejection is when the piercing isn’t pierced deeply enough. It’s a good idea to find a piercer who is experienced in surface piercings, specifically. Their studio should also be clean, and their tools should be properly sterilized.

Does an Anti Eyebrow Piercing Hurt?

Unlike typical piercings, the anti-eyebrow isn’t done on a piece of cartilage or other easy-to-access areas. In spite of this, they don’t tend to cause as much pain as other piercings. If you’ve ever had your eyebrows plucked, this will be similar in terms of pain.

Anti Eyebrow Piercing Healing Time

Anti-eyebrow piercings can heal at varying rates depending on the person. We recommend talking to a piercing professional about surface piercing aftercare instructions and cleaning routines before getting your piercing.

Anti-eyebrow piercing infections are possible, so if you’re experiencing piercing pain after the first two weeks or your pain level rises, contact your doctor.

The only jewelry that you can wear in a curved barbell. This is because it follows the natural anatomy of your cheekbone, reducing the risk of rejection. The good news is that there are tons of curved barbell styles to choose from.

Once your piercing has fully healed and your piercer has given you the green light to change your jewelry, you can choose curved barbells with gemstones, pearls, spikes, or even diamonds. Don’t be afraid to go bold; there’s nothing better than alluring jewelry in an equally alluring piercing.

Aftercare: Do’s & Don’ts


  • Ensure that your hands are clean before touching the piercing.
  • Take supplements like Zinc, Vitamin B and C to promote the quicker healing process.
  • Clean the area regularly with saline water using a cotton bulb. This minimizes the chances of infection. Another cleanser like H2O Ocean is also fit to use.


  • Do not clean the pierced area vigorously.
  • Do not let the soap accumulate near the piercing while taking a shower.
  • Avoid going for swimming or bathing in the bathtub as these harbor infection-causing bacteria in high numbers.
  • Do not remove your jewelry soon after the piercing as it may block up the piercing.
