Belly Button Piercing

You love belly button piercing? Well, there are many who are choosing it for one or the other reasons. And if you are also planning to the do the same, you can go ahead. Below is the detailed information about this type of piercing which make you more voguish and unique.

History of Belly-Button Piercing…

Traditionally, belly button piercing was done is in the top half of the navel. In the process, a piercer used to create a star or square shape, piercing the lips of the navel along with two or more surface piercings on the sides. The process today is somehow similar.

Is it for everyone?

Certainly not! Belly button piercings aren’t meant for everyone. If you wish to have it done, you first need to have a proper navel anatomy. This simply means that you need a top flap of the navel which must have enough space for piercing to hang. And it should be done in a way that there is no pressure from the top or bottom.

Those who lack room on the top flap, you can go for piercing the bottom flap instead. People with
belly button which closes when they sit down need not go for this type. Actually, the pressure caused by the top and bottom often leads to irritation and cause the jewelry to migrate.

What are the health risks of belly button piercings?

With this type of piercing, a bacterial infection at the site of the piercing is the major common risk. And the risk of increases if you have certain pre-existing medical conditions, say diabetes or a weakened immune system.

About 20 percent of body piercings are said to become infected. Few other risks included are:

  • Tearing
  • Jewelry migration
  • Allergic skin reactions to the jewelry used in the piercing
  • Scarring
  • Loss of blood/excessive bleeding

Last note; after getting piercing done it is essential to check your piercing daily. If any signs of irritation, swelling or redness exist for more than two- three days, you must consult your piercer or dermatologist.
