I got my belly pierced July of last year. The guy who pierced it told me not to go swimming for 6 weeks until it healed. You can not use any lotion on the piercing either. You can only use soap and water to clean it out. It may burn, but that is what he told me to use. I hope that this helps.

Actually, it is more a problem of how much skin is available in the piercing area, and how thick that skin is. Thin skin is more likely to allow the piercing to eject. Check with a licensed body piercer and let them assess your navel skin where the piercing would be.

What if the navel ring is going down in the navel piercing hole?

Well I am going to assume you have a navel gem or a bent barbell and the ball is sinking into the top hole of the piercing (this is because your question wasn't clear enough). That would be a sign that the piercing jewellery is too short for the piercing and you are going through some swelling. You should get into your local body piercing studio and have the jewellery changed as soon as possible, left unresolved this can cause serious issues for your piercing. All piercings discharge during the initial stages of healing, this discharge matter needs to be washed away daily so the piercing can heal. If the matter is left and not cleaned away the piercing can swell and become infected. Aftercare is a daily requirement and not an option, it needs to be done every day to maintain a health piercing. If the jewellery is too short it can block the entry and exit points of the piercing stopping the piercing discharge from draining and thus causing further complications to occur.

How long is a belly button piercing supposed to stay red for?

Actually not long at all. See it's the clothing and shirts and other layers that cause irritation to the navel piercing. If the piercing were done and left uncovered except for sleeping (bed sheets etc.) the piercing would look not bad maybe a very small red circle around the top exit point. So redness comes with the territory of clothing and irritation, this can be expected for a period of 3 to 6 months depending on the weather and the amount of clothing you wear over the navel. Remember regardless of what anyone tells you who isn't a professional body piercer navel piercing take a good year to heal and become seasoned* (* toughened up). So be nice to it and when possible give it all the fresh air you can.

Is it bad to get your belly button periced?

Not at all, if you have the right body for it. The only reason a navel piercing would be "bad" is if you have a body that interferes with the healing process. To see if your body is suited for a navel piercing, you should:Sit down in a chair or at your bedside, in a relaxed positionLook to see if your belly button gets tucked under your skin (most girls thing these rolls of skin are "fat," but anyone can have this effect, no matter what they weigh)If your belly button tucks under, your body is probably not fit for a navel piercing.Another way to check is to see if you have a horizontal dent/line that goes across your abdomen (naturally or when sitting). If so, then your body is probably not a good candidate for a navel piercing.

Usually, there is a little white goop coming out, but that's normal. If the stuff coming out turns darker, or has a greenish-yellow-ish, or even brown tint to it, it's probably infected. If there's a lot of bleeding, and it's very sensitive even after 3 or so weeks after the initial piercing, I would go back and check with your piercer.
