It doesn’t matter what perforating you choose to get- there are always going to be hazards of infections; it all depends on how well you look after them .
However, one professional has spoken out against a hazardous sound that is gravely grown in popularity recently: the snake eyes. This isn’t to be confused with the snake pierce sound( two sounds at either area of the lip )
TJ Cantwell of Studio 28 in New York spoke to Bustle about why he thinks that customers should steer clear of opting for it
” HERE AT STUDIO 28 TATTOOS WE HAVE ONE Strike THAT WE REFUSE TO DO. IT IS TYPICALLY CALLED A SNAKE BITE PIERCING. IT IS A CURVED BARBELL PUT THROUGH THE TIP OF THE TONGUE. IT IS INCREDIBLY UNSAFE TO HAVE THIS PIERCING .
IT BINDS TOGETHER THE 2 MUSCLES THAT MAKE UP THE TONGUE SO THEY CANNOT MOVE INDEPENDENTLY. THE JEWELRY ITSELF SITS ON THE BACK OF THE TEETH. IT IS ALMOST GUARANTEED THAT THE CLIENT WILL SEE GUM EROSION, CRACKING/ CHIPPING OF THE TEETH, AND MIGRATION/ REJECTION OF THE PIERCING LEAVING A NASTY LOOKING SCAR .”
Well, there is an opportunity examine cool but clearly, the snake eyes aren’t worth the hassle if they’re going to lawsuit you difficulties .
It’s all well and good to have an jittery sound but if you’ve got no front teeth- it doesn’t really make up for it .
So, plow ahead and express yourself by get any perforating you want but simply bear in mind that the snake eyes might be a lot riskier than you thought .
If in doubt, always do your research ahead and ask your piercer what their professional belief is !
