An anti-eyebrow is a facial piercing that is placed above the cheek bone or below the eyebrow.[1] Normally it is done with a small surface bar or sometimes a curved barbell.[2] This piercing can be vertical or horizontal, depending on the person's preference. Though it is a surface piercing, with proper care, placement, and jewelry, it can be a viable long-term piercing. Long-term viability is best with proper surface bars, and significantly reduced when barbells, or curved barbells are used. Often reputable piercers will refuse to do surface piercings, instead preferring sub-dermal implants.

Anti-eyebrows are also known as upper cheek piercings, tears, and teardrops or butterfly kiss.
