A very popular body adornment choice
Navel piercings may also be known as the umbilical dip piercings or belly button piercings, and it ranks at the top of popular women body piercing choices. They will look great and sexy on you with a nice piece of jewelry, especially if you have a nice flat stomach and a toned set of abs. But don’t get it wrong however, a navel piercing doesn’t make a person beautiful, it just adds to their personality!
This type of piercing became known in 1993 when the model Christy Turlington showed her navel piercing at a fashion show in London. But it really became popular after Aerosmith’s music video for their song Cryin’ also in 1993, where Alicia Silverstone has her navel pierced by body piercer Paul King.
How to get it done and care for it?
The very first thing you should do after deciding that you want the rim of your belly button pierced, is find a reputable and clean piercer. With Mantra Tattoo and Body Piercing you have to look no further, as we have two experienced and professional body piercers at our shop: Luke Horton and Randy Mickulesku. We always use medical grade sterilization and new needles on every tattoo and piercing; and our shop is fully inspected and regulated by the Jefferson County Health Department.
We also have a wide variety of high quality and professional made Piercing Jewelry for you to choose from. After getting your navel pierced, your piercer will give you detailed after care instructions, which you should follow to avoid getting it infected and risk complications.
Some of these after care instructions include: cleaning the area with salt water soaks, showering instead of bathing and washing with an antibacterial soap, avoid touching the piercing while it’s healing and using cotton swabs to clean it, wearing clean and loose fitting clothes during healing process. Keep in mind that you should not remove or change the piercing jewelry while your piercing is still healing. The healing process may vary from person to person, but in average it may take from 4 up to 6 months to be fully healed. You should have your piercer change the piercing jewelry the first time, once it’s healed and ready for the exchange.
