Taking Care of Your Navel Piercing
A belly can look sexier with a jewelry. Before you can wear a beautiful ornament on it, first, you should have it pierced. This experience may hurt a bit; however, some people claimed to feel no pain at all during and after the procedure. It may depend on how experienced the piercer is and how you take care of the piercing subsequently.
The wound left by piercing the navel can lead to infection if handled improperly. You may also be at risk of blood infection. Because of this, you should take time to gather enough information on how you should take care of a newly pierced navel before actually going for it.
Once your navel got pierced, you should temporarily refrain from wearing big, buckled belts because they can cause infection. As much as possible, avoid having anything rubbed against your navel so that the piercing won’t tear. It’s also time to set aside your tight pants, knitted clothing and lace clothing for the meantime. They can get stuck on your navel and cause complications. If you cannot avoid wearing such types of clothes, put a big band-aid on your navel to protect your piercing. Make sure that you will change the band-aid every 3 hours.
Belly piercing has 3 categories:
- Standard – This is done vertically.
- Multiple Center – Several piercings are done. This however can’t be done in one time. One wound should be given time to heal before doing another.
Changing the navel jewelry can be easily done. In fact, it is much easier than changing an earring. The jewelry for this can be bought at any jewelry store or at piercing shops.
If you want body modification but the company you are working for does not allow employees get piercings, you can go for a navel piercing because it can easily be hidden under your cloth.
