Eyebrow piercings first turned up in the 80s, and have become very popular. Eyebrow piercings are purely aesthetic, and do not have a recognized symbolic meaning. They draw attention to the upper face and eyes, either opening the gaze or intensifying it, depending on the placement.
The final look of your eyebrow piercings will depend not only on your eyebrow jewelry, but also on the placement of the eyebrow rings. If placed on the outer third of the brow, the piercing will make the eyes appear wider set. Piercing closer to the bridge of the nose, the inner third of the eyebrow, lend an intense seriousness to the expression. Usual placement is towards the outer end of the eyebrow above the outer edge of the iris as you look straight forward. This location flatters almost any face.
