Venom Piercing refers to a double tongue piercing that is performed straight through the tongue with a barbell, not to be confused with the much more dangerous Snake Eye Piercing which is pierced at the end of the tongue. Blue Banana does not offer Snake Eye Piercings due to the dangers associated with it.              

Make sure to check the venom piercing age restriction before coming to store. It can help to avoid any undue disappointment. In a Blue Banana studio, the venom piercing age restriction is 16 with the exception of Wales which is 18 (ID may be required). Venom piercings are not available with parental consent. 

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 venom piercing location. 

Venom piercings are usually pierced with a straight barbell. Your piercer will pass a cannula needle through the piercing site and then insert the jewellery. Remember, you will be sitting for two piercings in one if you opt for a venom tongue piercings.
Aftercare Advice
A venom piercing can take 4-8 weeks 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 tongue 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 and kissing as this may introduce unwanted bacteria into your piercing wound. 

When cleaning your venom 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.

Choosing Piercing Jewellery
There’s plenty of options when it comes to venom piercing jewellery from Blue Banana. Some popular styles include: 
  • Venom Piercing Barbell 
  • Venom Piercing Jewellery 
  • Frog Eye Piercing Jewellery 
There are a range of colours and designs to choose from in our venom piercing jewellery range. When choosing your piercing jewellery there are a few things you should consider: 
  • Jewellery Size – Make sure to find out from your piercer the size your venom piercing jewellery should be. 
  • Jewellery Material – piercing materials differ not only through their look but also how they could react to your skin. If you have sensitive skin that is prone to irritation, one of the many Titanium jewellery options is recommended. This material comes in a variety of colours and is durable too! 
When searching for a piece of jewellery make sure you know your measurements. We display the piercing jewellery measurements as Gauge first (displayed in millimetres) then Length, e.g. 1.2mm x 8mm. 
  • Gauge – this is the thickness of the jewellery itself. 
  • Length – the length of the piercing bar, usually not including the ball. 
Make sure to check out the tips from our piercing guides for information about changing and removing piercing jewellery.
