i got my navel pierced like 2 and a half years ago now and thay said you sould wait up to 6 monthes or compleatly healed that includes no tanning cause it can cause infection, burning and iratation to the skin you also souldnt eat fatning foods like pork or fried food that can cause infection but for swimming it sould be 6 monthes. Six months. That is the safest amount of time to wait. You might be able to get away with 5 or 4, but be safe and stick to six and give it time to heal properly. Navel piercings are very easily infected.
There's no need to wait to swim or do anything else... unless it is painful, irritating, or infected.
As long as it isn't a contact sport and no one else's sweat will get in your piercing you can play a sport right after you get your navel done.
2-3 months before the piercing can be submerged. You can go swimming now as long as the piercing doesnt get wet.
At least 2 months. You can go swimming as long as you don't get the piercing wet. Bodies of water are FILLED with germs that can infect a piercing.
It is best to wait 1 month after getting any piercing to go tanning. Tanning affects the texture of your skin and virtually dries it out. With a fresh piercing, this can be highly irritating.
Wait at least 2 months before you get them wet. You can go swimming as long as you dont put your piercing in the water.
3 to 5 weeks.
By that i guess you are asking how longs after the piercing do you have to wait?? If so, I was told 1 week before swimming in chlorinated swimming pools
At least 2-3 months
not a good idea
i got mine done a week ago and the piercer told me that i should wait to go at a pool about 2 weeks but he also told me that i could go anytime at the beach and also for tanning.
You 're fine . The cartilage isn't a serious piercing ..
Personally I dont think you need to wait at all, as long as you are COMPLETELY healed from you first piercing. But you might want to go to a bigger guage to avoid the whole scar tissue thing all together. The bigger guage SHOULD (as long as its a hollow needle) cut out some of the scar tissue, but then when you are ready to take out your navel piercing it will leave a larger scar than the first one did.
PiercingYou should wait 6-8 weeks after a navel piercing before you go swimming. While the salt in ocean water is better for keeping your piercing clean, it is still best to avoid the ocean for 6-8 weeks to avoid any bacteria. You also want to stay out of the pool (chlorine) for 6-8 weeks, as chlorine may irritate the piercing.In addition, lakes and rivers do not contain any disinfectant, therefore they contain A LOT of bacteria. Avoid lakes and rivers for 8 weeks until your piercing is healed.
You should wait until the 'wound' has completely healed with no oozing or bleeding and when the scab has fallen off. If you swim before this you may be putting yourself at risk of getting an infection which could mean you have to take you piercing out whilst it heals again and then it will close up altogether.
Nope. Wait 2-3 months to swim with a new piercing.
You need to wait a minimum of 3 months to do it yourself. However, your piercer is able to do it in as little as one to two weeks.
Usually about 8 weeks, but you can use tegaderm (a 3M membrane patch) to cover it if you just have to go in.
One hour, just like eating and swimming. Seriously go have fun but be sure to wash the piercing out after your swim.
2-3 months. It doesn;t matter how long it is. Water is extremely dirty and really increases the risk of infection.
Yes, you can go swimming but wait 6-8 weeks before you go swimming in chlorine because it will irritate the skin around the piercing. But you can go swimming in the ocean or lake right away.
You don't have to wait at all. The ocean is salt water! Which is, in fact, beneficial for fresh piercings. It's swimming pools you need to avoid as the chlorine can irritate and promote infection.
You can just as long as you don't get the piercing wet. Otherwise, you have to wait at least 2-3 months before you can get it wet while swimming. Water is filled with bacteria so submerging the piercing greatly increases the risk of infection.
