How to get snakebites
How I did it: Look, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with piercings. I like them, always have, and have always had them. However, the snake bite idea. . . It wasn't particularly painful or anything, it looked cool while I had it and everything. The scarring it left me with is most undesirable. It might just be that I'm my worst critic and I'm always searching out my flaws, but the scars suck. I also chipped my front teeth on them, which was the final straw for me.
On the other hand, I'm all about doing what makes you happy as an individual. If I could do it again I probably wouldn't, but that's the beauty of hindsight. It was fun when I did it though and it felt liberating. Lets just chalk it up to being 17 and very impulsive.
Lessons & tips: Make sure you get good quality jewelry that is also well suited to the size of your lip. If you've had piercings before make sure you tell your piercer about your experience with swelling and the like
