Double Lip Piercings for an Original and Appealing Look
Why settle for one lip piercing when you can have double lip piercings? Unless you are not obsessed by symmetry or you have a lip piercing situated in the middle of your lip, you can easily go for the double trouble! Monroe piercings often go very well together with double lower lip piercings. In fact, there are a ton of combinations that can make you look not only original, but also sensual and appealing to other people. Among these combinations are snake bites, spider bites, dolphin bites, cyber bites, canine bites, dahlia bites and others.
The pain factor
Double lip piercings will not hurt more than a regular lip piercing unless you get them both in one sitting. Other than that, they are situated at a scale of 3 out of 5. This means that since the lip is a very sensitive area of the body, it will sting and it will swell. However, the numbness or the discomfort feelings will not last for long. In fact, this type of piercing heals a lot faster than other piercings that are on the skin’s surface. You should be fine in maximum 3 months. Remember to keep the original piercing inside for at least one month to avoid infection.
The cleaning routine
Most of the double lip piercings patterns involve the perforation of the lip. In other words, the needle goes in and out the lip. So, these piercings will be both oral and normal piercings. Therefore, cleaning your mouth and caring for the exterior of your piercings are necessary. In order to clean your mouth, you need to regularly wash your teeth, use alcohol-free mouthwash and not eat spicy foods. For the exterior care, you’ll need saline solution and cotton pads. There will be buildup, so you’ll have to take your time to soak that and remove it afterwards.

Keep it simple at first! As soon as your lip is healed, you can change jewelry anytime you want!
19. A creative placement
These are nothing but two regular rings that were crossed. Creativity can take you a long way, piercings included!
20. Choose the right size
If you pierce your lip twice in the same day, it will swell. So, you’ll have to opt for larger rings than you actually need.
21. Purple marks are normal
The purple marks that you see in this picture are actually from a marker. The piercing technician will mark the exact spot where you want the jewelry to go in and then pierce the area. The color will wash away.

Spider bites are located either on the right side of the lower lip or on the left side. Regardless of the side, they are called the same. This set is nicely healed!

27. Eye-catching lip effect
Two silver rings and red lipstick that is so bright will guarantee an eye-catching effect. You will most definitely turn heads!

29. Spider bites with studs
Studs are more comfortable than rings. However, you can wear both in order to obtain different effects!
30. Healthy piercings look best
Piercings are an accessory and they are definitely related to looks more than anything else. However, healthy piercings tend to look way better! Here is an example!
31. Slightly higher dolphin bites
This arrangement of piercings is not a standard one. As you can see, the jewelry’s entry points are situated in the lip, not under it. They look like dolphin bites, but they aren’t really dolphin bites.
32. Stand-out black lip rings
Choosing such dark color as black, will make your jewelry stand out more. Her eyes and lip rings are definitely in foreground.
33. A horizontal labret
This type of lip piercing isn’t actually a double lip piercing and it is risky. Because it goes under the skin, not through it, your body might reject it.
34. Medusa meets the labret
Following a straight line, this piercing arrangement looks well-thought and pretty too! The one from the upper lip is called Medusa and the other one is a vertical labret.
35. Classic snake bites arrangement
When piercings are fresh, it is ideal to wear rings because you can clean them better. Moving the piercing inside the hole might be painful, but it makes cleaning easier.
Pay for professional services
If you’re going for the double lip piercings at once, then you’ll have to expect costs up to 120$. Most professional parlors offer discounts for two piercings, but don’t try to bargain as quality is more important than money. Your choice in jewelry has to be compatible with the pierced areas and they have to meet certain characteristics, such as being non-allergenic. You can discuss all the aspects with the piercing technician and make an appointment only if you are pleased. Happy piercing!
