A snake bites piercing is a type of lower lip piercing. It is actually a set of piercings, evenly spaced on either side of the lower lip. A snake bites piercing often goes straight through the lip and out the other side, but one variation, the vertical snake bites piercing, runs up and out the tp of the lower lip.
Snake bite piercings can either be pierced with studs or rings, and both types of piercings can be—and are—worn by both men and women. Although they look amazing on their own, snake bites piercings can also be combined with other mouth piercings for a sightly more unique look.
Most snake bites piercings are done in a very similar fashion, but that certainly doesn’t mean they’re all the same! The type of body jewelry worn and the combination with other piercings can make each piercing unique and different.
