What hurts more snake eyes or tongue piercing?
According to people who have a venom piercing, it’s usually described as being well above a 5 on a scale from 1 to 10.

Snake eyes piercings are rated at a 4/10 on the pain scale. Your individual pain threshold can make it slightly more or less painful, but it’s best to keep this in mind as a guideline. The actual piercing is a quick procedure, but swelling and tenderness will set in for the first few days after being pierced.
Immediately after the piercing, the wound may feel very sore and irritated. A person might have trouble talking and adapting to the new sensation in the mouth. However, they should avoid touching the piercing or knocking the piercing with the teeth, as this can increase irritation.
