Eh, I don't think it looks nice on anyone. I'm not anti-piercing btw, I have 20 of my own and a few retired. As with any surface piercing it has a high risk of migrating (moving around) or rejecting. It can happen anytime. I had my nape pierced and it was perfectly happy for three years. Then I had a painful boil appear in the centre of the piercing where it was rejecting and no amount of salt soaking or anything could save it. It left quite a scar that I had tattooed over. The risk with the third eye piercing is when you take it out you will be left with a scar, and the forehead is a very obvious place to have one, unless you grow a fringe or something. I still have a small hole under my lip where my labret was pierced even though I haven't worn it for at least five years. Do you have many facial piercings already? If you're already all pierced up and have run out of space then by all means go ahead, but if you don't have many visible piercings I would say hold off for a few months and really think about it.
Thanks for the reply! I have a couple of nose piercings as i have problems over my mouth so I can't pierce that as much as I would want to. I have considered the migration aspect of it, three years seems good going! I don't like my face anyway so i'm not sure it would bother me too much
I don't know anything about the piercing but just wanted to say that I really like them. I thought you meant one of those horizontal piercings over the top of your nose, which I don't like as much. Third eye one is really pretty though.
