The Dolphin piercings are a pair of piercings located evenly spaced outside of the center of the lower lip and as you move out towards the outside of the mouth you will be getting a different piercing locations but they all are the same general piercing.
The jewelry you can use for this piercing is pretty much the same as for any piercing around the upper lower lip piercings. Normally a stud with a flat disk on the inside topped with either a spike or a plain ball, a horseshoe topped with a set of spikes or balls or a combination of both, captive bead rings and segment rings are normally used to simulate the look of teeth with some of these piercings.
Usually you will use a 14 or 16 gauge ring or stud for these piercings when pierced. Stretching is not to common , but it is possible. Most commonly done in tribal settings , with bones and other object of choice. Alot of your really extrem body modificantions do alor of stretchig with these piercings in this area You are able to stretch the piercing up to as big as you want withen the area of the piercing.
The after care for the Dolphin Bite piercings is pretty general for any mouth piercing (excluding Toung piercings) with a mild anti-bacterial soap and a mouth non- alcohol containing mouthwash. The Alcohol tends to wash away the healing properties and can make the healing time take even longer and can be very painful if infection sets in. If it does get infected, and it’s not serious, because it might let’s face it your shoving a metal bar through your skin and it was not meant to be there so your body does not realize that it is ok for it to be there, it can and may get infected but don’t panic just take a little extra care with your soap and mouth wash and it should be fine. If need be go back to your piercer and they will look at it and tell you how to make sure it does not get any worse. My biggest suggestion is not to rush any healing time because everyone heals differently and even a person’s life style can make the healing time longer than someone else’s. Smoking is not a good thing for a new piercing but if you are a smoker make sure you clean your mouth out well with your mouthwash aster each time you smoke it The chemicals and contaminates in the smoke will irritate and possible infect the new piercing if not properly cleaned afterward, healing time will ultimantly depend on how you care for it afterwards. With regular after care it will be healed in just a few weeks, but if care is not taken care of the piercing with could become infected and take alot longer to heal with much discomfort.
The only real problem with these piercings is infection. Migration is not a real concern because it is going through, so it should not really work their way out of anyplace. Now anything is possible is the piercing is not done correctly. Always make sure the piercings are done correctly and with the proper sterile supplies designed for the job at hand.
Getting your bites pierced is normally done the same way. Either it is the Spider Bites, Angel Bites Canine Bites, Shark Bites, and EXC. You will tell your piercer what piercing and what jewelry you are wanting. The piercer may suggest a different piece of jewelry for example bigger or longer due to swelling in the area of the new piercing. Normally they will change them out to what you are wanting after the piercing has had proper healing time. The piercer will locate the area that the ring will be placed at with a skin marker and you will look in the mirror and decide if it is what u are wanting. Than after the correct location is decided the piercer will (in well-lit clean area) have u get comfortable in chair facing the piercer. The piercer will normally go over a few breathing exercises during the piercing. Then the piercer will get their equipment out (new needles , your chosen jewelry, clean clamps, rubber gloves, paper towels, and mouth wash) to make sure it can be done as simple, clean and as painless as possible. The piercer (with clean rubber gloves on) will than apply the clamps to the previously marked area and will make sure they are in the right area and straight within the marks for the piercing. Than the piercer will open the new piercing needle and place it at the desired spot and the piercer will have you start the breathing exercises previously discussed and at the set time he will insert the needle through the skin. After the needle is mostly through the skin the piercer will than insert the selected jewelry into the hollow part of the needle and will continue to pull the needle out and will leave the jewelry in the newly pierced area. Than the piercer will finish by putting on the other piece of the jewelry to complete the stud or ring. Than the piercer will clean around the new piercing with a mild anti-bacterial soap and will give you a small cup of mouthwash to wash anything from the inside of your mouth of any bleeding that sometimes does happen during a piercing.
