Body piercing is not a new issue at all. There are a lot of archaic peoples which used to wear such decorative elements and a lot of people wear them nowadays too.
Does eyebrow piercing ache?
Well it does not ache as much as you can imagine. You will feel a quick sting and a little pressure for less than a second. Eyebrows area is not as delicate as your genital area for example, and it also depends on the dexterity of the person who applies your jewel.
Why don’t they apply an anesthetic in the eyebrows area?
A local anesthetic is not efficient at all and a total anesthesia can create more discomfort than eyebrow piercing. The tissue which is injected gets contracted and it will be impossible to spot the right place.
Can an eyebrow piercing be applied using a pistol?
The answer is no, because a pistol uses a quite blunt needle and the piercing is performed forcefully, therefore it can provoke pain and even a trauma. Actually pistols can’t be sterilized in order to be used again.
