Double Snake Bite Piercing: What You Need to Know

A double snake bite piercing might be perfect if you're looking for a bold and edgy look. This piercing involves two symmetrical piercings on the lower lip, resembling the fangs of a snake. Here's what you need to know about the piercing process and aftercare.

The Piercing Process

A professional piercer usually does double snake bite piercing with a hollow needle. The piercer will mark the spots where the piercings will be placed on your lower lip. After cleaning the area with antiseptic, the piercer will use a hollow needle to make the holes. Then, they will insert the jewellery, usually a hinged ring, like the titanium snake-hinged ring on our website. The piercing process is quick, usually taking only a few minutes, and the pain is typically mild to moderate.


After the piercing, your piercer will give you aftercare instructions to help prevent infection and promote healing. These instructions may include the following:

  • Rinse your mouth with sea salt after every meal and before bed. Combine 1/4 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt and 8 ounces of warm distilled water. Spit out the solution after swishing it around your mouth for 30 seconds. Do not swallow.
  • Avoid spicy, acidic, and crunchy foods that can irritate the piercing. Stick to soft foods and liquids like soup, smoothies, and mashed potatoes.
  • Do not play with your jewellery or move it around unnecessarily. This might aggravate and prolong the healing process.
  • Brush your teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild toothpaste. Use mouthwash that does not include alcohol or hydrogen peroxide.
  • If you experience swelling or pain, take an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen or acetaminophen as directed. Apply a cold compress to the area to reduce swelling.
  • Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the piercing unless necessary. First, wash your hands with soap and warm water if you have to touch them.

A double snake bite piercing is a great way to make a statement with your appearance. With proper aftercare, you can ensure a speedy and successful healing process. Remember to choose high-quality jewellery like the titanium snake-hinged ring offered on our website, and consult with your piercer if you have any concerns.
