How to Fake a Facial Piercing. Whether you're trying to spice up your image or make a statement, facial piercings allow you to express yourself in different ways. If you're not quite ready to take the leap and get the real deal--because of your job, or you're just not sure if you're going to like it--a fake facial piercing may be what you're looking for.
Decide what area of your face you want to "pierce." Because your face is a clean slate, you can apply a fake piercing in many different areas--nose, cheek, lip, eyebrow. Choose one area of your face to focus on because you're going to want to see how that fits into your lifestyle before moving onto additional piercings.
Measure the area where you're wanting to apply your fake jewelry. Jewelry should compliment your face, not overpower it, so make sure you know how much space you have available for your fake facial piercing.
Browse online catalogs for the specific facial piercing look you're trying to achieve. Not only can you see what the jewelry looks like on a person modeling it, you're able to view what products are available for sale.
Purchase your fake facial-piercing jewelry. You can buy online, but you may want to consider shopping in person at a local body-art store because you may be able to try on the jewelry. You're also likely to gain knowledge from an employee as far as tips and ideas to support your new look.
Apply or attach your new jewelry. Before heading out for a night on the town, wear your fake facial piercing around your home to determine its comfort.
