How to Blow O's and Other Vape Tricks
Next to vape juice flavors, vape tricks are one of the simple pleasures of vaping. Vape tricks are a fun but challenging hobby every vaper can enjoy.
One of the most well-known and simple vape tricks to learn is blowing o's or rings. If you have a friend or two who vapers, you've probably seen this trick before. It's when someone inhales and blows a vapor cloud in the shape of an O or ring.
While blowing o's is relatively simple at the beginner level, there are tons of different ways to blow o's that can be very challenging.
In this guide, we’ll explain how to blow o's and discuss other vape tricks to try as you progress. Let's dive in.
The Best Type of eJuice for Vape Tricks
Before we begin, it's important to know what is the best type of ejuice for doing vape tricks.
The ideal type of vape juice for vape tricksters is one that can produce large volumes of vapor or clouds. So what type of vape juice is best for cloud production? To understand this, it's important to first understand vape juice ingredients.
While Propylene Glycol (PG) is a synthetic compound and can deliver a higher quality flavor experience, Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a naturally-derived compound that has a thicker consistency and when heated in a vape device, or vape pod system, produce larger volumes of vapor.
Blowing Single Smoke Rings
Blowing smoke rings or O’s is one of the most important tricks to learn if you want to know some cool vape tricks. They form the basis of a lot of other tricks, and people will always be impressed if you can demonstrate a perfect O. It can take some time and practice to really get it right, but once you get it down, you'll be able to show it off wherever you go.
To blow an O, take a pull on your vape toward the back of your throat, keeping your tongue at the bottom of your mouth and toward the back of your throat. Form an O shape with your lips (this part is pretty self-explanatory) and then use your throat to make a series of pushing movements to push the vapor out. Move your throat like you're doing a small cough in pulsing movements. You can change the shape of your lips to affect the size and shape of the smoke rings that you blow out. Pull your lips in to make them bigger instead of pushing them out.
No need to worry if you don't get it right the first time. It can take a while to perfect the skill, so keep practicing until you can get it down.
Blowing Double or Triple O's
Once you can blow a single smoke ring using your vape, you can also blow two or three rings—or perhaps even more—at the same time. It's not difficult to do this after you've gotten the hang of doing just one ring. There are some different methods that you can use to get the desired effect, so try them out and see which one works for you.
The first method is to inhale as you would if you were going to blow a single ring. Next, place a finger on your mouth, pressing and pulling down a little on your top lip so that your mouth is now two sections. Next, simply blow your vapor out as you would for a single O and you will get two rings at the same time. Use two fingers and open your mouth wider if you want three rings.
Another method you can try is to use your other hand to slowly tap the side of your throat as you exhale. This can help you to blow lots of rings on one exhale—and even fill a whole room with lots of impressive O's.
How to Blow Bull Rings
If you want to blow smoke rings but mix things up a little, there are some different shapes that you can try. One of the options is creating bull rings, which first requires you to be able to blow an O. The concept is simple, but the execution can be a little trickier. First, blow a smoke ring, then lean forward and use your nostrils to inhale the top part of the ring. This will make it look like you have a large ring through your nose. While you're learning this trick, it's a good idea to stand in front of a mirror so you can see if you're getting it right.
How to Vape Triangles
Are you bored with your round O's? After mastering smoke rings, you can experiment with some other shapes. Using your hands, you can reshape your rings into other shapes, like triangles. To get a triangle, you need to be quick and accurate. The technique is simple on the surface but can still take some practice to get right. Start by blowing a thick ring, then use your hands to push it and tap on the side twice so that it bends into a triangle.
How to Bend Your Vape Rings
Vape bending allows you to manipulate the rings that you blow, which helps when you want to learn further tricks. It involves using your hand to change the shape and direction of the ring. When you blow a ring, cup your hand next to your mouth. Use your hand to follow the ring and gently direct it to where you want it to go. Once you've mastered bending your rings, you can try a trick like a jellyfish trick, also called the force field or atomic bomb. To do this, you pull a ring forward with your hands, then exhale the vapor into the middle of it.
How to Add Color to Your Vape Tricks
If you want a way to make your vape tricks more impressive, adding color to the visual experience is a great way to do so. Although you can't actually get colorful vape smoke, you can use a vape mod with colored LED lights to simulate the appearance of colorful vape clouds.
