For women with piercings only please or women who know about them!

So hello all, I already have 6 piercings, 3 on each ear and my right nostril :) I have wanted a final one for a while but I couldn't decide between side labret, vertical labret or eyebrow. So after a lot of thought and information, I decided on eyebrow! I know all there is to know about it and I will ask my piercer for more info as well but the thing I read and it shocked me a bit is that it can 1) grow out of the skin and 2) get droopy, like falling, loose skin where you get it, if not done properly. I am wondering, is this true? Apparently, I would like answers from women who either have this piercing now or had it sometime in their lives :) Please let me know your experiences! Thanks a lot!

PS I am hoping my 15 month old DD won't be too fascinated with my piercing and wanting to grab it lol. :P

  • I have a good friend who had her eyebrow pierced. Her body rejected it and it 'grew out' now she has a nasty scar by her eyebrow. I like the way they look but I personally wouldn't risk it.

  • @ButMommie Thanks a lot for your input, but I would like answers from women who have experienced it themselves...and also I am getting it done no matter what, as I love piercings. :) But thanks anyways!

  • If it was me I would wait until your little one gets a little older. I had my eyebrow done when I was 19 and had a nephew pull it out and when he did it.... it ripped out. I heal pretty well and the scar from it is not noticable unless you are super close. Before this happened my piercing did start growing out as well.

  • I had mine done last April. I have not had any problems with it. My sone was 3 when I got it so I had no problem with him grabing it either.

  • My ex had a labret peircing and it ruined his gum line. I would say eyebrow but I would personally be terrified about my little one pulling it out :)

  • It depends on your body. Since it is a surface piercing, you run the risk of your body rejecting it and pushing it out. This happened to me when I had my navel done the first time. Labret piercings are safer as far as that goes, and the scar is much less noticeable if/when you decide to take it out.
