The belly button piercing is now one of the most popular types of piercing. You can also see it more and more among the stars: Britney Spears, Pink, Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus are just a few of the many prominent wearers.
A navel piercing sits on a part of the body that is inevitably in constant motion and most of the time in direct contact with clothing. You should therefore not underestimate it and be prepared for a high level of care, especially until the puncture canal has healed completely.
As a rule, the piercing is pierced vertically from top to bottom through the fold of skin above the navel. Piercings on the lower edge of the navel are less common. A piercing directly through a protruding navel is also possible, but not nearly as widespread.
The first choice for matching jewelry is the bananabell, but ball closure rings are also popular. In any case, it is important that a piercer checks before changing jewelry for the first time whether the navel piercing has healed enough that new jewelry can be inserted.
Healing. As with any other piercing, the healing time naturally depends on the health of the wearer. With careful care, it usually takes about six months for the canal to heal completely. Only then can new jewelry be used.
Risks. Running, sitting, standing up, bending down: our core body is constantly in motion in everyday life and the abdominal muscles are constantly stressed. These are of course more difficult conditions for a freshly pierced piercing to heal, which can sometimes lead to the healing process being protracted. Rubbing against clothing and belts can also adversely affect healing. For these reasons, you should refrain from exercising for the first time in order to give your piercing the necessary rest to heal.
