It is very safe. Their will be no problems If you already have your navel pierced and become pregnant it is safe to keep the piercing in if you're pregnant. There are maternity retainers that flex with the growth of your belly.

Any piercing can become infected, navel piercings have a higher chance of infection than most others, because of the vicinity that it is located at since most people neglect to keep the area clean. Being on birth control pills won't change the chance of infection, or make an infection more or less harmful.

Its not just navel piercings that can reject, its all piercings! Its a risk you take when you get the piercing done. Your body simply sees the piercing as a bad thing and pushes it out, You can try again with the piercing but it is not recommended in the same place.

Britney Spears has three ear piercings on her right ear, 1-2 ear piercings on her left ear, and one navel piercing.

Actually, no. Oral piercings are among the piercings that rarely get infected; that is, if they are taken care of properly. The piercings that are the most prone to infection are the navel and ear cartilage piercings.

I believe she has two lobe piercings in her right ear and two in her left, and one helix piercing in her left too. She has a nose piercing on her right nostril and a navel piercing.

All navel piercings are crooked to some extent. Now if yours is completely lopsided then it would be best to take it out and get it repierced.

If you have to ask this question then you shouldn't be piercing yourself. Save up and just go to a professional. Navel piercings are surface piercings and they need special care to avoid rejection.

It isn't the piercing that you should worry about. It's the possible contraction of diseases or infection from getting a piercing. If you already have a piercing, just keep cleaning it and be super careful to not get infections. Most older piercings should be fine but get a longer flexible bar for navel piercings.

Not sure what you're asking. Dermal piercings can be put in the same area as a standard belly piercing would. If you're asking if surface piercings are just like belly piercings, no. Technically, navel piercings are surface piercings. other surface piercings require a different shape bar or dermals if you use them. They're typically deeper too.

It means she thought navel piercings look good and paid someone to do it to her. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and sometimes a piercing is because you like that piercing.

Just keep it clean. I dislike navel piercings because they are s-o-o-o-o-o hard to heal. Your navel is a hinge point on your body, and it's always in motion. Piercings that are being moved around all the time heal slowly if at all--consider a year to be a quick healing on a navel piercing. If you are very thin and very pretty, a navel piercing is really cute. But it's such a pain to deal with I'm not sure it's really worth it.

As long as you follow the aftercare given to you by your piercer, there are no risks involved in navel piercings. There are no nerves or viens in that area of your body. Edit: As far as i know, theres no definite risks. Infection is a probablitie for any piercing, and from my research, its quite common on naval piercings so make sure you keep it clean (:

No a navel banana bell is not designed nor intended to be used in a tongue piercing. Tongue piercings are done with a straight barbell, the curve in the navel bell will cause trouble with the tongue piercing as well as being too short.

A navel piercing will cause scarring no matter what. Whether you got pregnant or not.

As you would without a navel piercing, just be sure the navel piercing is the last thing you clean before you exit the bath.

You can go swimming 72 hours after getting a piercing, just remember that it is important to wash the piercings after you have finished your days worth of water activities.

Your question "Can navel piercing migration be down to growth" makes no sense.

I can't say my navel piercing/anti-navel piercing is sore, thanks for asking. >_<

She can still keep her navel piercing in.

Body piercings aren't meant to be. Your body probably isn't agreeing with what you're doing to it.

User Avatar

Its a surface piercing so It'll take at least 6-9 months to heal completely. You can change the bar after 2-3 months. Usually, 11 year olds cant get navel piercings. The youngest I've seen in a professional shop is 13. Just call around to local shops and see what they say :)

If it hangs or dangles chances are good that it will retain a piercing. Placing the navel piercing off to the side will be problematic for aftercare and irritation during the healing process. If you haven't had a navel piercing before then stay with something that is simpler to care for and will give a result a navel piercing is supposed to give.
