How to Blow Vape Rings
For many, vaping is much more than a vice, it’s a part of some people’s identities. Whether it’s building your own tanks, experimenting with new flavours or mastering a few vape tricks, there is certainly a lot of fun to be had with the hobby. At Zombie Vapes, we wanted to put together a simple guide to help our customers get to grips with how to blow smoke rings, and offer a few easy vape tricks that might help!
Our Guide for How to Blow Vape Rings
Blowing vape rings may seem like it takes a great deal of skill and artistry, but it’s actually quite a simple trick that just takes a little bit of practice! Follow our easy steps and you will be blowing vape rings like a pro in no time.
Step 1: Practice your Face
Getting your face to form the correct shape can feel foreign at first, so it’s best to practice the facial motions before you start. Put your lips into a classic ‘O’ formation, the standard way to do this is to stick your lips outwards as if you’re making an ‘ooo’ sound. Whilst you’re doing this, also jut out your chin. You may feel silly at first, but when you’re impressing your friends with huge ‘O’s, it won’t matter!
Step 2: Take a Warm-Up Hit
Take a DTL (direct to lung) hit of your vape and exhale it slowly. This will help you take control of how fast and how big you blow your ‘O’ rings.
Step 3: Inhale your Vape
Now you’re ready to start, inhale your vape and keep it in your throat. If you’re not used to DTL vaping, this may take some getting used to, and it might cause you to cough at first.
Step 4: Move your Tongue
Keeping your mouth closed, draw your tongue to the back of your mouth. While doing this, ensure the tip of your tongue is pointing down towards the bottom of your mouth.
Step 5: Form the ‘O’
Now’s the time to put your lips into action and form the ‘O’ you’ve been practising earlier.
Step 6: Cough it Up
To push the smoke out of your mouth, you should make small coughing motions. You should feel a small pressure followed by a burst of smoke. However, when doing this, you should not use your vocal cords at all in this process. If you are, that’s a sure sign that you’re doing something wrong.
Step 7: Be Amazed
Your ring should come out easily, and you will be able to blow a few with just one hit of your vape. So have fun and experiment with a few different rhythms and combinations. You might want to blow small rings in fast succession or make the largest rings you can. We’ll leave this part up to you!
Taking Vape Rings to the Next Level
If you’ve got a handle on blowing vape rings, you might want to try taking it to the next step. Blowing 2, 3 or even more rings at once is quite easy once you’ve mastered blowing a basic ‘O’. Following the steps from the beginner’s guide, all you need to do to create 2 rings is to use your finger to make a divider in the centre of your mouth.
Take your finger and rest the tip on your top lip with the base touching the bottom. Gently apply pressure to pull your top lip down slightly, as this will form the individual rings.
Once you have your finger in the right position, then you can blow the rings as you would normally and voila – you have 2 vape rings!
This trick can be done using 2 fingers to make 3 rings, and in any other combinations, you might be able to think of. Just remember to open your mouth wider to accommodate.
Our Easy Vape Tricks and Tips
Now that you understand the basics of how to blow a vape ring, there are a few tips that might help you with mastering the skill!
- Take it back to the very first step, you know that awkward face we asked you to make? Well, let’s try it again! This time, instead of pushing your lips outwards to form the ‘O’, practice curving them around your teeth. Doing this should not cover your teeth completely, and the tops and bottoms of your teeth should still be visible. By curving your lips inwards, you will be able to form tighter, thicker and more perfect ring shapes!
- Always make sure your tongue is pushed far enough back into your mouth! You need to be able to have enough space to form a ring and enough breath to push the smoke back out of your mouth.
- Finally, you should try pushing a small amount of air out of your lower throat without taking a breath or without moving your jaw. If you master this technique, then blowing vape rings will come much easier.
The Cheater’s Guide to Vape Rings
It may be the case that even after reading through our guide, you just can’t get the hang of blowing vape rings. Or, you just want to be able to show off the trick sooner without all the practising. Which is why we will let you in on some little hacks to producing vape rings quickly and easily!
If you can’t get the hang of the throat technique to blow vape rings, then simply tap your cheek. Firstly, gather the smoke in your mouth, but don’t inhale. Form your lips into the classic ‘O’ shape and use your tongue and mouth to steadily blow some smoke out. By repeatedly tapping your cheek, you will produce a mini-ring for each tap!
You can also try the tongue method, which eliminates the need to blow smoke out totally. Curl your tongue to the back of your mouth with the tip resting on the bottom, so your tongue makes an upside-down ‘U’ shape. Whilst keeping this formation, drag your tongue towards the front of your mouth and this will push the smoke out in a ring. Make sure you keep your lips in the ‘O’ shape for this to work.
