I got my navel pierced 6 months ago and i was able to bend normally the same night I got it done. It doesnt hurt the piercing at all, and don't worry getting it pierced didn't hurt that much. It was definitely worth it (:
Doesn't matter as long as no one sees it and if they do just say "it's for cultural reasons".
Your Navel piercing shouldn't be dark. I would suggest you go back and see your piercer.
The actual piercing part is literally about 5 seconds! Overall with the cleaning, numbing etc, its about 5 minutes.
6 months to a year. 6 months is really early though so I would say 9 to 12 months.
To change the jewellery 6 weeks
2-3 days is how long i had to wait
You need to wait about 6 to 8 weeks after getting them pierced before you change them.
Not long at all, piercings don't heal in a month especially the navel piercing, it takes from 3 to 6 months for a good light heal, but is far from healed and seasoned to handle having the jewellery out for long.
2-3 months. It doesn;t matter how long it is. Water is extremely dirty and really increases the risk of infection.
You can usually take a bath about 3-4 day after you get your navel pierced but whatever you do don't go swimming for at least for 4 weeks after getting it done
No. Navel rings take a year to heal because the navel is in one of your body's hinge points, and the tissue around the jewelry is always in motion.
ears its fine as long as you clean it before and after your swim :) Good Luck
Wait at least 8 weeks before you change the jewelry.
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.
You should bathe your ears in surgical spirt 3 times a day for 6 weeks after having them pierced. It's also recommended that you bathe them once more if you've been messing with your ear ring alot that day.
So long as you've been keeping it clean and the jewelry is still comfortable and practical for you to wear, I don't see any reason why you would HAVE to change it.
it depends on what you are waiting for. if its to have sex, you might have to wait a long time until you find a girl that will let you put that thing inside her.
6 weeks for the lobe of the ear, but 12 weeks for top of ear (cartilage).
As long as you're getting it done at a reputable place (that is, not doing it yourself or having a friend do it), piercing is pretty safe. Infections are uncommon--be sure to follow all instructions they give you about keeping it clean--and you should be fine.
