    Default Price of snake bites?

    Does anyone out there have a ball park figure for how much snake bites should cost? I'm asking on behalf of my daughters mate whose thinking of getting it done for her 16th b'day. The place where we go quoted 70 which sounds a bit steep to me although I appreciate it involves two piercings and two lots of jewellery. Just wondered if it was a rip off price?

    70 does seem a bit steep. Lip piercings tend to be 20-25, and some places knock a few quid if off if you're getting 2 done at once.

    Lip piercings are between 20-30 usually. Although some places don't include downsize prices in that. So if you look for a cheaper quote, make sure it includes a downsize.

    si_tragedy : what is downsizing?

    General: It seems as though she should be able to get a better price elsewhere. I believe the piercing place we go to does a discount but he never mentioned it and obviously snake bites involves two piercings by its nature. I understand that cheaper is not necessarily good but 70 sounds expensive to me. I have a tattoo booked there later this year so will read up on their discount offer and see what it says.

    Thanks for your help guys 'n' gals, much appreciated

    The bars or rings you'll be pierced with will be quite long to account for swelling, and you should downsize (change them to smaller ones) after a few weeks.

    katexx - thanks for clarifying that for me, didn't think about the bars being bigger for swelling, my brain is switching off now after a long week at work - apologies for seeming so dense ;-)

    I shall definitely suggest she shop around for some quotes before committing herself.
