Creating smoke circles (or "O's") with a shisha requires some practice and technique, but it's certainly possible to master this trick. Below are the steps you can follow to make smoke rings with a shisha:


  1. Take a substantial drag from the shisha and hold the smoke in your mouth for a few seconds. It's essential to inhale enough smoke to create a thick cloud.
  2. Form an "O" shape with your mouth by pulling your lips inward, as if making a fish face. Keep your lips closed but maintain a small opening about the size of a coin.
  3. While maintaining the "O" shape with your mouth, forcefully and briefly exhale the smoke from your throat. It's important to expel the smoke quickly and powerfully to create a stable ring.
  4. Practice with gentle puffs to see how much smoke you can exhale. Try taking longer puffs to gather more smoke in your mouth.

Creating smoke rings requires some practice, so don't be discouraged if you don't succeed right away. Keep practicing, and you'll find that you improve at making stable and beautiful smoke rings.


Now that you know how to make circles with a shisha, here are some additional tips to help you master this trick faster:

  • Ensure the smoke stays in your mouth before you start forming the "O" shape with your lips.
  • Power is essential when exhaling the smoke, so avoid exhaling too softly or slowly.
  • Pay attention to the wind direction and try to avoid smoking in drafty environments.
  • Keep the shisha close to your face to make it easier to inhale the smoke.
  • Practice in a quiet place where you feel comfortable, as this can help you stay relaxed and focused on the technique.


Do you find making circles with a shisha boring? Or have you quickly mastered making smoke rings? There are other tricks you can learn to enrich your shisha experience:

  • The waterfall, also known as the French inhale: Take a good puff from your water pipe and hold the smoke in your mouth. Open your mouth and push your lower lip forward. This allows the shisha smoke to escape upwards. Inhale the smoke with your nose.
  • Ghost inhale, also known as the double inhalation: Blow out a cloud of smoke and then inhale it back into your mouth.
  • Tornado: With this trick, blow the smoke out over a smooth surface and use a flat hand in an upward motion to try to create a swirling vortex of smoke.
