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.

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!
