Before we kick off this guide to getting a spider bite piercing, we want to remind you that some body piercings take longer to heal than others and that healing times can vary from person to person. Standard labret piercings usually take about 3-6 weeks to heal, while spider bite piercings take anywhere from 1 to 3 months. To help avoid complications, cleaning your lip piercing or any body piercing regularly is a must during the healing process. It’s also important to keep the original jewelry in while the piercing heals. For more info on piercing aftercare, take a look at our How to Care for Your Body Jewelry & Body Piercings blog.
