eyebrow piercing

I'd like to get my eyebrow done, but there are a few things which put me off:

1, a friend told me that it chips a bit of the skull off and the bit of bone will rattle when you take it out.

2, will it be harder for me to find a job?

3, how easy would it be to look after?
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Ive got a few peircings but not my eyebrow althoiugh i no a few people who have. The thing about the skull I think is most definatly a load of crap! For strters they dont go any way near deep enough to affect your skull! There r tons of scare stories about peircings and the majority r a loads of bollox.
    Its not hard to look after it at all, but for the first few weeks u have to keep it really clean and stuff. Also a friend of mine ripped hers out whiole changing the bar so u do have to be carefull. As for getting a job, it probably would have some affect because unfortunatly too much is judged on appearance nowdays and peircings r often a no no in interveiws. Hope that helps <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    yep that bit about it chipping abit of ur skull was a load of bull! ive heard some scare stories but that takes some beating!

    i had my belly button pierced and it went really red swollen and was pussing all the time this lasted 4 about 5 months, so in the end i took it out and let it heal up.

    as a bday prezzie my bf paid 4 me 2 get it done again in december, i dont think i let it heal enough and they pierced scar tissue. and that went really small, and when me and my bf were shagging it ripped out i had no idea till i felt it. it had ripped in 2!!! no pain no blood - nothing! now i have an awful scar! so no more poercings!

    sorry i really aint helped.

    just keep it clean n sterile and it should be fine but make sure u go 2 a good piercing place.

    Thats a damn good memory <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; Well done.. you score LUV points.

    Firstly myth about it chipping bone, thats a load of rubbish, but one fact to point out is that the piercing does come close to a certain nerve so get it done professionally...

    It doesn't hurt much at all, I've got a bar and so the basic proceedure was mark then clamp skin, put some local anaesthetic on it and then pierce through with a bit of plastic and slide the bar on with that and fasten the balls to keep it in place.

    As for jobs and things, yes facial piercing can be a huge problem, my place is always asking me to consider removing it... it really depends on the line of work your interested in pursueing

    One of my friends had both her eyebrows pierced and they grow out! The skin surrounding the piercing just came right up to her actual eyebrow and she's just got two small scars across her 'brows now.

    It think you'd have to take them out at work, depending on where you work.

    I'd heard people talk about that before but wasn't sure if it was true or not.. one of my mates said that takes about 18 months or so, I've had mine for about 9 months... if it happens I'll just move to my other eye and visa-versa... <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
