5 Things to Know Before Getting a Belly Button Piercing

Belly button piercings, also known as naval piercings, are a popular choice for body modification. However, there are a few important things to consider before getting one.


  • It's best to get a belly piercing after summer, so the healing process is more manageable. You can also get one before summer, as long as you have at least three months before hitting the beach.


  • Avoid swimming for at least four to six months after getting a belly piercing to prevent bacterial infections. The total healing time for a belly piercing is six to nine months.


  • Avoid tight or high-waisted clothing, as it can irritate the piercing and cause dark circles around the belly button. Opt for comfortable, loose-fitting garments instead.



Before getting your belly button pierced, make sure to bring identification (if you're a minor, bring a parent with ID as well), eat a meal, and wear comfortable clothes.)
