Snake Bites Information Guide

What is a Snakebite Piercing?

A snake bite piercing consists of two studs located on either side of your mouth, specifically the corners of your mouth through your lower lip, giving you that viper goddess/god feel.

Who’s The Best Person to Do a Snakebite Piercing?

Anyone can attempt to do a snakebite piercing. However, with the plethora of DIY tutorials, you can find online, people will likely try to do it themselves. If you’re thinking about doing your piercing, don’t do it.

We highly discourage you from doing your snakebite piercing. Only trust a professional and reputable piercer, even if it means you’ll need to shell out cash. Professional piercers have the knowledge, skills, expertise, and instruments required to perform snakebite piercing safely and efficiently.

What’s the Healing Time for a Snakebite Piercing?

Studies show that a snake bite piercing takes up to one month and a half to heal. The pain can extend up to a month but don’t worry too much because it’s tolerable. And it will slowly decrease in intensity as the wound heals. The swelling can take up to three to five days. But, it’s important to mention that healing can vary from person to person.

How Do You Care for Your New Snakebite Piercing?

After you get your new snakebite piercings, there are a few things you need to keep in mind to ensure the piercings don’t get infected. During the first few days, stick to a soft diet. This means you should only consume pasta, yogurt, soups, etc. When brushing your teeth, use a soft-bristled toothbrush. Don’t forget to rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash.

To minimize the swelling, add some ice cubes to your cold drinks. It’s also helpful to use an extra pillow when you sleep to elevate your head. Before cleaning the site, wash your hands with soap and water to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. Clean the site two to three times a day using a saline solution.
