Vape Tricks: Learn How To Become A Vape Bender
Wizardry of Vaping
In a dark setting with a dimmed light coming from a reflector casting a blue shade, there is a man. Using a single device in his hands, using nothing but his mouth and hands, he sculpts the vapor mesmerizingly. As he moves, inhales, exhales, and waves with his hands, the clouds are following his rhythm, taking shapes he wants them to take. They dance away into the darkness, as he summons the new ones.
No, this is not Avatar the Airbender, Harry Potter, or a Jedi. This is Edward Titus, the king of vaping artistry and so-called vape bender filmed in an act of literally sculpting the vape clouds and performing vape tricks during his artist residency. You can read more about Titus and vaping as an art form in our blog post on competitive vaping.
Proclaimed as King Titus, he honed his cloud bending skills for years. Proper air control, lung capacity optimization, smooth and accurate body movements, and of course, the device that can match his skills and needs, earned Titus his crown. Only time will tell whether someone will overthrow the King, but in the meantime try some of these vape tricks to earn a crown of your own. If you are not a vaper but would like to quit smoking or would like to become a vape magician, here are some of the best starter tricks that will help you manage your habit and develop your skills.
Let us start with King’s signature trick, because what’s the best way to beat someone but by learning their own language? It is The Jellyfish, also known as the Atomic Bomb. Do not be fooled by the simplicity of a jellyfish anatomy. In order to achieve authenticity of this ocean dweller, you need to be aware of its delicate looks, and how to best resemble it with your vape. To do so, blow a ring and follow it with your hand, until it slows down and becomes wider. At the same time, inhale once again and keep the vapor inside your cheeks. After you gently blow the accumulated vapor into the ring, the vapor will be dragged by it forming a jellyfish. Sounds simple enough, right?! Yes, the video below also make it look so easy, but just try it yourself and see how it goes.
The Jelly Dolphin
Jellyfish does not have to stop here! You can make it evolve into The Jelly Dolphin, a move that has just recently appeared on Instagram. As it seems, you make the same jellyfish, just without controlling it with your hands, and faster than for the regular one. While it floats before you, you suck it back in your mouth, and blow it out. It should form a semi-bow shape, like a dolphin.
The Shark Bend
The Shark Bend trick takes vape rings to a whole new level, so that they look like sharks bending and twirling as they jump out of the water to catch their prey. This trick has to be done while standing, and you can use your hands, mouth, or both to bend the rings. Those with more skill can create the shark shape only by their mouth. Basically, you blow a small ring before you, let it float shortly, and now comes the shark bending moment: suck the ring back but only until it reaches your mouth (you do not suck it in!), and swiftly blow it upwards so it bends. You can do the same thing by bending the rings with your hands additionally.
However, if you are into more extreme creatures, and happen to be a fan of Game of Thrones or any other dragon related trivia, then The Dragon, or The Dragon Breath is the trick for you. It is not as delicate as the jellyfish, but instead of shaping the cloud to a dragon form, this trick will rather make you look like a dragon. Specifically, you will look like a dragon breathing out the smoke. All you need to do is to take the biggest rip you can without inhaling it, and once your mouth is full with vapor, exhale it through your nose and corners of your mouth. The characteristic X shape should appear if you’ve mastered this trick enough to become a dragon!
On the other hand, you can always do simple, but amazing tricks, like The Waterfall. It does not take too much skill or vape bending, and it looks equally mesmerizing. Almost like a science experiment, or an otherworldly thick fog. All you need is an empty plastic bottle, with a little bit of frozen water or ice on the bottom, and the flattest surface you can find. Inhale the vape, exhale it carefully into the bottle, and pour the magic out onto the surface.

In order to create any of these shapes, whether you’re a pro or the beginner, you have to make sure that your vaping equipment meets the requirements for performing these tricks. Sub-ohm vape tanks and vape mods are crucial for being a vape magician, and you can find some of them here. With good equipment, you might even be able to do vape backflips, or underwater vape tricks, that some vapers specialize in!
