Once you’re all booked in, you will have some forms to fill
out. A member of Blue Banana staff will go through the steps and can help you
pick out jewellery. Then you can meet the piercer! They too will give you a
quick consultation and briefing before discussing the Dolphin bites piercing
Dolphin bites piercings are usually pierced with a labret.
Your piercer will pass a cannula needle through the piercing site and then
insert the jewellery. If you want to have your Dolphin bites in one sitting,
remember you will be having two piercings at once.
A Dolphin bites piercing can take 2-3 months to fully heal.
The exact healing time varies from person to person and will need top aftercare
to ensure successful healing.
After the initial piercing, your lip is likely to swell and
can be quite sore. During the healing process, you should avoid spicy and
sticky foods, including chewing gum as this can get caught around your piercing
jewellery. During healing, avoid smoking, alcohol, and kissing as this may
introduce unwanted bacteria into your piercing wound.
There are two different types of cleaning you will need to
do for your Dolphin bites piercing. When cleaning the inside of your Dolphin
bites piercing, swill a saltwater solution around your mouth twice a day.
Ensure there is no food stuck around your piercing, regularly use mouthwash to
maintain good oral hygiene, and try to avoid touching your piercing while it
heals. When cleaning the outside of the piercing, use a saltwater solution or
Tea Tree Oil to gently bathe the piercing twice a day.
