My sister has a lip piercing and frankly it looks cool as hell or a very nice accessory (depending on which ring she is using). My spanish teacher has brow ring and due to his face structure it doesn't look to nice , but considering you have a narrower face than him I think it might look nice. Either way, if you don't like one you could simply stop using them and let your body heal. Its not like it is permanent (is it?!).

I think it depends how long you leave the jewelry in, but most piercings heal okay, true. My sister used to have two in her lip, but she's taken them out and you almost wouldn't know they were ever there.

Which Ubisoft location are you shooting to get into? I know I saw a listing for a concept artist at their Barsalona location about a month or so back.

this is really old argument haha you can't be hired in Disneyland or Chanel shops with those but most people just don't care. and piercings? gosh you can always take them out to work haha. 
I was thinking about lip piercing too but my teeth are quite weak (plus I know myself, I would be pulling it all the time!)
on your lips put the fake ring and wear it for a day, get used to the look :)

I don't have facial piercings ('cuz I hate things getting close to my face!!!!) but from the people I know, the brow rings have a possibility of 'healing out', as it were.  The body forces the piercing out as it heals it. o_O  Not too cool but it doesn't happen to everyone. 

That said, I like the way you've done the work here.  It shows that you can still look good with them without them completely dominating your face. (Seen it before *shudders* ) I think either way you go about it, you should do the one you feel more comfortable with first. (my personal fave between the two is the lip ring though ;) )

Personally I think it makes you look tough (as in the image above) but it has to be done well or it can make you look a little odd. That is only how I feel about it though and each person has a right to chose what it is they want. Well done on the artwork!

Hmm. why not wait a bit and when your settled in (wherever you go to work) and then get the piercing?
Ubisoft may be a cool place but what if the next company is not?

Ooooh, very very cute!  I've been told brow piercings are really hard to keep, and many end up rejected after a time. Do you already have a nose stud?  I hadn't noticed!

As a side note- I totally love the way you draw yourself.  Instantly recognizable. <3  Sometime, when you have a bit more free time (hah!), I want to harass you about a couple of personal pieces, and maybe a larger project.....cause my husband and I are making a board game and are on the look out for an awesome artist.  >.>

I don't have a nose stud yet, but my sister suggested it might look good ... we'll see. The lip and brow ones are the main one I want!

I'll let you know when I'm done with Voltaire's book. Then I might be open to more projects!

I'm gonna throw in with her- the nose stud would be super cute!  Heck, I think you'd rock any/all of them.  Hehe.

And sweet!  When you're able, let me know and I'll geek at you a bit and see if it's the sort of project you might consider taking on. No massive rush.  Thanks!

I'd go for eyebrow over lip.... the main reason I've never seriously considered piercings is that I don't like the concept of 'so now I have this thing I have to take care of and check and not forget because it's a hole in my face....'  also every time I look up the details on specific piercings I go 'oh.... ick....' I mean just the high ear piercings sometimes start leaking cartilage (so do the nose ones)... everything sometimes snags and rips, etc. 

However, I've met lots of people who have eyebrow/ear/cheek piercings that I thought looked really cool. 

As to jobs- eyebrow can be covered up fairly easily if you need to look professional- just grow your hair out a bit and most people will barely notice it. Also, most piercings can be left to re-close if you change your mind about them, unless they're the spreader-ey things.... In the artsey lines of work it's generally less important than if you wanted to work at, say a bank, and people have been getting progressively less fussy about hiring people with piercings. But the thing is, not having any piercings will never close any doors for you, and having a pile of metal in your face might. 

Ultimately- your choice!

So far I've got the Neopets star logo under my collarbone, and the Tryker logo from my first MMORPG 'Ryzom' on my left thigh. Eventually I'm hoping for full sleeves, though. The next one I'm getting will be Alice Cooper on my left shoulderblade ... which is going to kill me, I just know it.

i have 3 piercings in both ears, snake bites, and a tongue ring. I pierced my belly button twice, but it rejected both times. Ive got major sensitive skin to. With a skin allergy to water, the sun, and being pron to random break outs of eczema, I was worried to. But i take care of my skin, so the belly ring was the only one that didn't work out in my favor. I may try again with a gold ring, instead of silver. I  have one tat and will be getting tons more in the future. But i love piercings and tats, so i say go for it if you like em get em!

For my sensitive skin I use only surgical steel or, even better, titanium if they have it. It's usually more expensive than the usual metal and I go to specialist stores with very high standards of hygiene. If you're having problems with your jewelry I'd suggest trying titanium yourself, so far I've had no issues with rejection with it.

All my piercings are titanium. But sadly my belly ring still rejected, both surgical, and titanium. The piercing didn't even last a few months even with proper care :(. My mom said that, if i ever try again to use gold. Down side to that is, so far its harder to find. I only get jewelery from my piercer, he understands my pickyness lol. But he doesn't even know why it rejected -.-. But i really hope you at least get the lip piercing i love mine and suggest them =^.^=.

I'd get those weird craters on your cheeks checked out first before you invest in any piercings.  Could be a flesh-eating virus.  A piercing might exacerbate that.  :twocents:

Same here! I've always wanted a brow ring but had the same idea that most people won't hire you based off of that, but when you are working behind the scenes and don't have to do much PR work...who cares! However a friend of mine said that brow piercings pull on your skin and over time you get this overhang...I still want a lip ring though!

They do look quite great on this picture, might suit you but it's much harder to say would they really look good on you, since this is a drawn picture. There's small chances that they might not look as good on you in real life, even though they look good on you on this picture. Now this is only my opinion, but the lip ring might not suit you that well, as I try to imagine it on your real face - I can't say that for sure and it's only my opinion, but somehow I can not see you with one.
I sometimes try to picture the little decorations either in my head or photoshoping them on a real photo... although most of my piercings are taken "blindly", without trying to see through a modified picture or drawing that how they'd look on me :'D I think I just got lucky, that neither of them looks bad.

Piercings are lovely ♥ And so are tattoos, I have two of them and I'm planning on taking five more. I really don't understand why tattoos and piercings are still such a taboo when trying to get a job. Really, not all people are satanists or such, even though they might have dozens of tattoos and piercings. Some of them are the nicest people there are, gentle and sweet. But maybe it's because of the older people, still fearing people who look different and such. Tattoos used to be the marks of whores and piercings were a sign of rebellion or something.

I'm actually writing a news story on body art in the work place. Lots of places are changing their dress codes to include it, and I think Ubisoft would have a lot of employees with body art.

Besides, piercings areslightly easier and quicker to remove than a tattoo. :)

Ha, everybody seems to think I'm so straight, when in reality the only reason I never got a tattoo is because I could never decide on an image to have inscribed upon my skin. Not to mention I never had the money... and I'm too chunky to put it anywhere appealing... :| The trials of a realist, lol. 

I say if you have the guts for it, go for it!

I'm actually an apprentice piercer and can tell you two awesome things:
1, You can always take them out, and they will heal (unless you've done some major damage to them) to look like simply large pores
2, There are clear retainers out there made from medical grade tubing , it's sort of like plastic, but hypoallergenic and safe for the body. So if ever you are asked to take them out you can just put in retainers and use a bit of make up.

Downside:
1, Most piercers will use metal for the initial healing period. I don't know what the scene is like outside the U.S. though.

I'd love to answer any questions you had about them if you have any.

I've had 11 piercings (12 if you count my industrial as two separate holes ...) and so far all of them save for the industrial were metal, but I'm usually okay with that, less pain because I don't have to swap them out later. :P I will probably wait to see how the scene is back at LASALLE; at Ubisoft it's lax on piercings and tatts, but as a teaching assistant there might be more of an issue with it, and the thought of having to swap out metal jewelry for clear tubing while it's healing is painful.

Scarlet-Adler Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah. XD It's generally not advised to switch out healing piercings for that exact reasoning.
Regardless I hope you'll be allowed to make the decision for yourself, the body mod world needs more open-minded professional jobs.
Good luck!

A brow piercing would be too damn hot on you ♥ Said it before and I'll say it again, you should totally go for it.

:P Hey maybe if I'm feeling crazy, I'll schedule my tongue piercing on the same day and when we get home we can spaz about it.
...Though maybe not. I imagine I'll never hear the end of it if you catch me lisping heavily. XD

I've always wanted an eyebrow piercing too. Before it was the military that kept me from getting one (even though I've had a secret tongue stud for forever), now I think it's just that I figure it'll eventually surface out. Still, they look pretty awesome and if you want 'em, I'd definitely do some looking around at well-recommended piercers or something.
