How-To-Care-For-Belly-Button-Piercings

Belly button piercings are popular and stylish, but like all piercings they require proper care to ensure that they heal well. This piercing takes quite a long time to heal fully, so it is important that you keep it clean. The good news is that as long as you take good care of them, belly button piercings very well. They look gorgeous and allow you to wear eye-catching belly jewellery once the piercing has healed.


How To Care For New Belly Button Piercings

Like most body piercings, the most important thing is to keep your new belly button piercing clean and dry. Clean your piercing twice a day with saline solution and do not touch it too much. Healing times vary from 8 to 18 weeks, but we recommend that you continue to clean your piercing for at least 16 weeks even if it appears healed. During the healing period you should avoid swimming or submerging the piercing in water, as this can introduce harmful bacteria. You should also make sure that clothing does not rub the piercing and air it frequently. Alcohol, smoking and poor hygiene will all impede the healing process.

Your belly button piercing should feel increasingly comfortable as it heals. If you experience persistent pain or any unusual symptoms, consult your piercer. You should not change your belly button jewellery until the piercing is fully healed. If you are unsure if your piercing has healed, ask your piercer.

Belly Button Piercing During Pregnancy

Pregnancy puts a lot of pressure on belly button piercings so it is important to either remove your piercing, or switch to a suitable pregnancy belly bar. As your belly grows, it puts pressure on the piercing and stretches it. If you were to wear a normal belly bar during pregnancy, the piercing may reject or become embedded. Both are painful and can be dangerous. If you wish to continue to wear belly jewellery, we recommend switching to a long, flexible belly bar, ideally a BioFlex or PTFE bar. With the correct jewellery, belly button piercings do not pose a risk during pregnancy. However, if you are concerned please consult an experienced piercer or doctor.

When it comes to comfortable navel jewellery, you can’t beat BioFlex navel rings. BioFlex is a revolutionary material for navel rings, a special type of biocompatible plastic that gives you complete comfort and actually helps to reduce healing times. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have a great choice of BioFlex navel rings, some of which you can see below. BioFlex is very bendy and soft, so it moves with your body and reduces stress on the piercing. It is also completely biocompatible and non-irritating, so it is ideal for sensitive piercings and can even help your piercings to heal. It is also non-stick, which makes these navel rings much easier to keep clean.

Classic BioFlex Navel Rings

These BioFlex navel rings have the same basic shape as traditional metal belly bars. They are easy to use and come in a fantastic choice of cool colours and glamorous jewels. I would recommend these highly, especially if your navel piercing is often sore or your jewellery gets caught on clothing. Because these navel rings are flexible they are less likely to get caught or press uncomfortably into your skin.

Piercing jewellery needn’t be expensive and now you can find an amazing range of cheap piercing jewellery that doesn’t compromise on quality. After all, poor quality piercing jewellery can irritate your piercings or even stop them healing, so it’s just not worth settling to anything less than the best. Here at Body Jewellery Shop we have an excellent choice of cheap piercing jewellery under £5, including the most popular designs and top quality materials for less.

Cheap Navel Piercing Jewellery

Navel piercings are very popular, which means that there is a huge choice of cheap navel piercing jewellery out there. Plain surgical steel bananabells are always good value for money but if you want to make more of a style statement without breaking the bank, there are a few things to look out for. PMMA acrylic is one of the cheapest materials for piercing jewellery but it is very comfortable to wear. I recommend an all-acrylic bananabell like the blue one below, or one with a steel stem and acrylic balls, like the neon purple one. Both of these bars are excellent quality but still under £3.
