There are several different ways that you can pierce a belly button. Traditionally, naval piercings are done through the top of the belly button, placing a curved barbell through the naval, usually with a studded end. However, many individuals have taken this art one step further by adding lavish charms or jewels to the end of their barbell as well.


In honor of many ancient cultures such as the Egyptian and Arabic cultures, many individuals are getting the bottom or sides of their naval pierced, using various jewelry or dermal piercings as well. This creates a unique look that, while covering the belly button completely in some cases, it generates an entirely new sense of awe to those gazing upon them.

When looking to get your belly button piercing, you should always accent the form and shape of your own body. Those with outter belly buttons may opt for a piercing through the center of their belly button since there is not enough room to go through the top or bottom of it.


You may often see belly button piercings that incorporate chains or band around the entire waist line as well. Since belly button jewelry comes in all different shapes sizes and designs, it gives you the ability to create your own sense of individuality perfectly. While many people opt for simple jewelry that accents their body shape more than their fashion sense, it is not uncommon to see studded jewelery that is relatively small in size. However, this is far from always the case. Since the belly button is one of those body parts that is often exposed and deemed as a sexual desire for many, you will often see women get really creative with their belly button piercing choices!


Common Things To Consider When Getting Your Belly Button Pierced

You should always consider the amount of skin and cartilage that you have around your belly button before you decide to get it pierced. The stronger the cartilage is around your naval, the less issues you will have when getting it pierced. Many people often find that without this, the piercing will not stay in and can often rip out, so to speak, most commonly when they speak. While it sounds like a painful thing to happen, you often do not even feel the piercing remove itself from the skin.

You will also want to ensure that you are getting the right jewelry. If you intend to keep a simple design piece in your naval, this will not apply to you. However, if you at some point will want to dabble with the more lavish types of jewelry, such as bigger barbells, hoops or crossway jewelery, you will want to get your original piercing with a larger gauge needle to accommodate your jewelry choice.


Body piercing such as naval piercings can often help you develop a strong love for piercings. It is not uncommon to base your belly button piercing around tattoos or other forms of piercing such as dermal piercings. This will give your stomach a unique and creative look to ll that gaze upon it. Since women love to wear bikinis in the summer months, you will often see the most creative piercing designs that are unlike anything you will ever see.
