There is a very real hazard to having piercings around the mouth. They've resulted in instances of chipped teeth and wearing of the gums and the teeth's enamel. Wear at your own risk. If you work in child care or the health care industry it's not wise to wear ANY piercings. Children love to grab shiny things and put them in their mouth. In hospital settings some patients can become combative and a piercing makes for an easy grab and rip. Eye brow piercing, if using heavy studs, can eventually lead to a sagging eyebrow. It'd look funny if it was only one side. Also, if you're having an MRI done you'd better not be shy. When they ask you if you have any piercings you'd better tell them. Many people "thought" their stud was pure stainless steel until the MRI was turned on.
