I received an email from a woman who is concerned about her eyebrow piercing:
I got my eyebrow pierced today. After reading online about migration and rejection, I'm very worried that my piercing is certainly doomed to reject at some point. My piercer used a press-fit titanium curved barbell. He described the tissue as "moderately taught", though I can easily pinch it between my fingers (on the opposite eyebrow of course!) My question is - are most eyebrow piercings likely to reject eventually? Is there anything in addition to sea salt soaks that I can do to prevent this from happening? I've already grown so attached to my new piercing that I'm very afraid of losing it.
Thank you so much, M.

This is a continuation of my discussion from my previous blog post about stretching a Prince Albert piercing:
How or what does migration look/feel like? The stretch was done by the piercer who did the PA. It felt like a lot of pressure for a very brief second when it was stretched last week. I did not see the blood until I peed and like I said it was very little. They used a horseshoe about a 1" I am guessing. I normally wear underwear. I had some crusting the first couple of days but that is all over with. I did soak it the first couple of days after the stretch. It easily moves in the shower. I wanted a barbell for the stretch but they were out. The original piercing was done Nov 1st last year.
Thank you for your help.

I received this message:
I have heard that surface piercings, eyebrow, navel, anti eyebrow and some others, have a tendency to reject. I was wondering if there are some ways you could prevent or slow down the rejection process for these piercings? If it does start to reject and you take the jewelry out are there fluctuations in rejection risk( more or less risk) that would possibly result in a different outcome if you had it repierced? And also what are some signs to tell if a piercing is rejecting? Thanks! G.
