Seriously, trying to give yourself a hickey on the neck is REALLY sad. It would be best if you can try and get someone else to do it for you, like everyone else does…
If you really just can’t, then try the following methods maybe:
- Giving yourself a hickey with a bottle
Step 1: Choose an area of your neck, arms or chest and get an empty 68oz soda bottle. To avoid creating a mess, rinse the bottle out with water. If you want a small hickey, then use a small plastic bottle for this.
Step 2: Put the top part of the bottle in between the palms of your hands and try to make the spout oval-shaped by pressing it inwards. Doing this mimics the copies the shape of a person’s mouth.
Step 3: Get in front of a mirror and place the bottle opening against your skin.
Step 4: Pinch the outside of the bottle to release a bit of air. Please note that the suction gets tighter when you release more and more air. This makes it more likely for the capillaries underneath your skin to break.
Step 5: Hold the bottle opening on your skin until a firm seal is created. Then allow the bottle to suck on it for 30 seconds. If you want the hickey to be very deep and obvious, you can leave it on for longer.
Step 6: Move the bottle around and create a suction an inch below or above. This stops the hickey from looking too round and makes it look more realistic.
Step 7: To spread the blood into the outer areas of the skin, use a toothbrush and brush where the hickey is. Start at the center of the bruise then brush outwards. Your new bruise (hickey) should last anywhere from 5 days to a week.
Find a spot for where you want your hickey to be then switch on your vacuum. Place the suction opening of the hoover on your skin and leave it there for 40 seconds.
Place a warm rag on your skin for a few minutes and then pull, twist and pinch that spot. You can even grip it tightly under you get the bruising shade you desire.
This isn’t the best or safest way to do it but it worked for me when I was 14; burn yourself with a curling iron. Do this 3 or four times and in the same place too. The burn will look like a hickey but one that doesn’t look like it was sucked on too hard.
