You don't pierce your own eyebrow.

Wikianswers is not a venue to provide how too information that can lead to serious injury.

Safety pins are not safe in any way, shape or form to pierce yourself with. You are inviting infection and disease if you follow the previous answer and it also goes to show how much you should trust the general public. If you want your eyebrow pierced go to your local shop and talk to them and then ask them if a safety pin will work, if they say "sure" run and find a better shop. Safety pins are not made out of any implant grade or surgical grade material and therefore cannot be sterilized. Rubbing alcohol will kill most bacteria, but that leaves you wide open to viral infections and diseases such as hepatitus and HIV. You may ask how, but honestly, who's to say that a packager doesn't have Hep. C/B or HIV and gets stuck packing up 1000 safety pins and yours just happens to be in that batch? There are too many .

Something to consider

The reasons you should not attempt to pierce your self should be obvious, but for those who think it's a "DIY" project, here's some food for thought.

Infection and contraction of MRSA, HIV, Meningitis, Hepatitis and Tetanus are all very serious health issues, MRSA is an antibiotic resistant bacteria that can in most cases land the unlucky individual in the hospital (and has been responsible for serious deformities and deaths). These infections has been caused by using unsterilized equipment and materials. Sterilization is not achieved by pouring alcohol over needles and jewellery, or burning these items over a fire or exposed flame. Microorganisms live in the fine fissures and cracks in needles and jewellery and only the high temperature and pressure of a steam Autoclave can render these and many other bacteria harmless.

The above reasons alone should be enough to sway anyone from thinking they can do it themselves. Professional body piercers have years for hands on training and education to enable them to make any piercing "look simple", when in fact they are considering dozens of things when they lay out a piercing and actually do it. So consider your lack of knowledge, training and skills before you attempt to do any self piercing, once you pierce it, it's damaged tissue. This makes it even more difficult for a professional piercer to leave you with a great looking piercing when the area we have to work with is damaged by self inflicted attempts.
