Can you pierce over a closed piercing?

Hey guys,

I had my eyebrow pierced a few months ago, took it out just recently, and it closed up. I would like it re-pierced on the same eyebrow, but there is still a little bump under the skin like you would have from an earlobe piercing. It doesn’t hurt and it was not infected…just wondering if there’s any harm in getting it redone in the next couple months or so. A friend of mine is a piercer and says that is okay, but some other people are advising against it..

If you’re leaving a good two or three months before repiercing, you shouldn’t have a problem having it repierced in the same area.

  1. I had a hole in my lobe, it was the third hole up. It had gotten infected and I was an idiot and took the piercing out, trapping the infection inside and leaving scar tissue that felt like a lemon seed inside my ear. Does the bump in your eyebrow feel like this at all? Anyways, I ended up getting it re-pierced, which was hard to do, because the scar tissue inside had gotten so hard, but besides the pain, which was MUCH worse than it was when I first pierced it, I believe it is perfectly safe to re-pierce over healed piercings. Mine is perfectly fine now.

  2. This is my REALLY old question, idk why I’m on here, but for the record, by the time I decided to get repierced the bump
    was all gone. However, I did have two small dent like scars that have been visible for about a view from the entrance/exit holes of the piercing. I got my eyebrow pierced again in pretty much the exact same spot, Okayed by my
    professional piercer, and it’s healed quite nicely.
