What Makes Bites Piercings Unique?
In essence, bites piercings consist of several different piercings. Each piercing on itself is fairly simple and typically uses basic yet elegant jewelry pieces, such as labrets or Captive Bead Rings.
Typically, bites piercing come in two variants: bites piercings made of two piercings and those made of four piercings. Unlike Industrial piercing, different piercings that make a bites piercing are not physically connected by jewelry. Instead, they make a visual pair. Most of the time, the image they produce are of a certain type of a “bite” (hence the name).What makes these piercings unique and truly effective is the way two or more piercings are placed: together, they make a special image or a special effect. As such, bites piercings are never made from a single piercing, and if jewelry is not worn in one of the piercing holes, it is not a bites piercing. Bites piercings are usually made by combining several Labret, Monroe or Medusa piercings.
