Bridge Piercing AKA Earl

A bridge piercing is done on the loose skin at the top of the nose, between the eyes.

Typically a straight barbell is used for this piercing, as it is a form of a surface piercing.

This is not a very painful piercing, but it must be maintained for success. Be diligent about cleaning this piercing and never touch it with dirty hands to improve your odds against rejection and infection.

The name "Earl" for the bridge piercing came from the first known person to get this piercing. His full name was Earl Van Aken


  1. Bridge Piercings are very hard to get it as it gives a lot of pain to the person who is getting it. But it also looks very stunning after getting it, the person in the above picture is also looking good with his piercing.

  2. I guess this is not a good piercing to get if the individual doesn't have time to maintain it

  3. Thanks for every other informative site. The place else may just I get that kind of information written in such an ideal means? I have a venture that I’m just now operating on, and I have been on the look out for such information.
