how to make veins surface
« on: May 09, 2017, 12:28:19 AM »
Does anyone have any good vein-poppin' techniques? 

I still have good veins  but they really don't stick out like they used to, it seems they have withdrawn under the skin just a little.

I normally only like to use crook of elbow, or the veins on the underside of my forearms.  There's a huge one by my ankle, but that fucker hurts when I use it, and I know its not recommended to use that one anyway.

Warm water soak, and spinning my arm like a windmill are things I've tried with varying results.

Just thought one of you might do something that I haven't tried which works well for you.

I got 3 points of what is supposed to be some fire over the weekend and I don't wanna waste it yeah?  Today will be 48 hrs without 'done, so im getting excited.

Drink more water, a lot more water. There is also a supplement called Nitric Oxide, you mix with a drink and that will make your veins pop as well, but you need to be super hydrated for it, and you CANNOT double down on those doses. The vein-popping effect you get from that supplement has a dose ceiling at pretty close to the therapeutic dosage.

You already listed most of my tricks.  Take a hot shower and do some exercise like jumping jacks or the like.  I tie off my arm and do a sort of throwing my hand ddown and flexing while making a fist at the bottom motion that works fairly well.  You have to really snap it at the bottom of the motion.


I think my best trick is to get a nice tie.  I used a wide band elastic that was made for the purpose.  You can get them on alibaba and from china pretty cheap: https://finermed.en.alibaba.com/product/60357559876-802284908/Flat_Elastic_Latex_Rubber_Tourniquet_for_infusion.html   The one I used was like the box that says disposable tourniquet most of the way down the page.  A nice wide band firm elastic like that really works wonders for helping to bring up stubborn veins.  Appropriate tools make a huge difference.  If your veins are getting busted then make the investment in a proper tourniquet and you'll be blown away.  Your veins will look like a virgin junkie again.

Why not? I've used that one a bunch without any problems. Should I not be using that one?

Poor circulation to the feet, which can lead to a lot of complications with missed shots.

Others have mentioned my normal techniques (heat and exercise).  Something else I want to mention...rotation is key!  It's super easy to continue to use the same vein over and over.  I've certainly done this.  But, using the same "easy" vein over and over is a good way to lose that vein.  My main vein used to be in the crook of my left arm.  I over-used it and it blew  :'(  God, I miss that vein.

mr. pooper knows how to make his forehead veins pop up.  every time i see that pic i think about trying those but haven't.  If i went on a binge & my veins hid underground from me again I'd definitely try 'em.

That's one of the first things I notice about people. Some people's big vein in their forehead pops out and is obvious while others are very well hidden like myself. I don't think I've ever seen mine if I even have one there.

Reese Witherspoon has one that's very obvious and is always showing. Can't think of who else but there are certain actors/actresses that that's all (or the first thing) I notice about them when I see them on TV.

^^^I too notice other folks juicy veins. Sometimes I tease my husband and prod at his nice veins. He was a sniffer so his are still ripe.
Speaking of forehead veins--when my Moms gets pissy she has this massive one along with a neck one I just stare at.

I've gotten some scar tissue over the years but being super thin and pale helps. And rotate dammit. :)

I do have one weirdish trick as far as ties go--I get a belt of any kind or an ace bandage and drape it over my arm. Then I twist it tight enough then tuck it between my knees so that as soon as I register I release it from my knees without having to use my hands at all.

And yea, stay hydrated. Other than helping pop your veins it helps to keep away opie headaches.

On an obvious note, stay the fuck away from stimulants. Curls are about the best little exercise to get your veins popping up from my experience. Also a fucking hot shower. Prepare your shot prior to getting in the shower so you can blast off with a quickness. God that sounds like it would be heavenly. Lol it's time for my afternoon split.

I have a few friends that rig up in their neck, but I never had the cojones to try it. What if you miss?  Ick.

i've used the jugular a few times, its easy as hell to hit when the other spots were hiding underground.  but yeah, it's kinda spooky (for me).  i don't know if it's any more dangerous than arms, just feels that way.

-Staying hydrated
-Using a tourniquet
-Apply heat: Hot shower, warm compresses, warm bath (avoid hitting in the bath)
-Exercise
-If you are using black tar, your veins will be fucked quickly and will likely never be the same
-Rotate your sites
-Don't reuse needles: Dull needles will scar veins and surrounding tissue
-Always treat missed shots ASAP: Apply heat to missed shots to help absorb faster and prevent abscesses, Apply ice to bruised areas a few times a day.
-Using the lower extremities can lead to infection, blood clots, and slow healing
-Best to avoid using the jugular veins: If you do fuck up every peripheral vein that emergency services can access quickly, the jugular veins can save your life. I know this personally.
-Use a micron filter
-Take your time when injecting. Have your supplies ready to go. Keep your supplies clean and dry. Use sterile water if you can get it.
-Get a vein finder if you can afford one. A Red LED light can be helpful. I hear iPhone makes something to find veins. A flashlight can work as well.
-Stop injecting if you are not in the vein, it starts to hurt, starts to swell at the site.
-Always aspirate to check that you are in the vein before you inject. Even if you get blood, always pull back on the plunger before pushing in the contents.
I always used to aspirate one or twice when injecting larger amounts if I wasn't sure the vein was a great one when I started. It can take a steady hand, but it is worth it in the long run.

These are not all tips of getting veins to the surface, but will increase your likelihood of being able to inject much longer.
Injecting BTH is going to tear up your veins quickly. I have not injected in more than a decade and blood draws and IV's are a real struggle.
