I don’t consider myself to be an extremist when it comes to body modification like piercings and tattoos, but I do have 4 piercings and 17 tattoos and counting. My most recent piercing was an eyebrow piercing that I pierced for the second time because the first one rejected. The first time I got my eyebrow pierced I didn’t go to my regular tattoo shop I was out of town on vacation and it was kind of a spur of the moment thing and clearly the guy didn’t know what he was doing. The piercing wasn’t deep enough and it eventually started to reject so I took it out before it completely grew out of my skin. Just recently about 3 months ago I decided that I wanted my eyebrow ring back. I went back to my normal piercer at my tattoo shop that I frequent often to have it re-pierced. When I got to the shop I was kind of nervous that they wouldn’t be able to re-pierce my eyebrow because it rejected the first time and I didn’t want it to reject again. The piercer reassured me that it wouldn’t reject this time as long as it is pierced properly. Another thing he did for me was put a solid titanium curved barbell in it he said that with titanium I would have less of a chance of rejection. My piercing has been doing great and there are no signs of rejection yet!
