Snake bites piercings are a set of two lip piercings with one placed on either side of the lower lip. These piercings can be done at the same time or separately. The name "snake bites" can also refer to twin tongue piercings, commonly known as tongue venom piercings.
Labret studs, ball closure rings and circular barbells can all be worn in snake bites piercings. There is a risk of tooth and gum damage due to jewellery rubbing against teeth and gums. This damage can be permanent so it is vital that you consult a professional piercer in the event of any change to the area. This damage can be avoided by wearing a soft Bioplast labret stud. The outside of the piercing should be cleaned daily with saline solution. Rinse with suitable mouthwash twice daily and after eating. Avoid alcohol and smoking until fully healed.
