Perfect Position of Navel Piercing
The perfect position of navel piercing is ½-1 inches through the upper lip skin of the belly button. The idea is to place the bottom ball of the ring on the top of the belly button. So, if you are worried about the position or placement, you know it now. If your belly button is ‘outie’ in shape, then that will affect the placement marginally. However, that will not alter the placement of the ball on the top of the belly button. If you notice the piercer placing the belly ring with the ball much above the top that is wrong. This will be a surface piercing with high chance of rejection. Professional piercers usually have it right, but it is still helpful to know the actual position of the belly button ring.
Now, there is a thing called double belly button piercing or a 4 point belly button piercing. In these respective piercings the placement will be much different from the one mentioned above. The principle remaining same one ball should rest on top of the belly button while the barbell should pierce the inner wall of the belly cavity. The outer wall must protrude between ½ and 1 inch away from navel area.
Caring for Belly Button Piercing
Washing the piercing twice everyday will quicken the healing process. Wash your hands and apply saline water to the area to wash off dried skin. After that clean the place with antibacterial soap and pat it dry. Healing time of a navel piercing depends on the body constitution of the person having it pierced. Sweat, clothes and chlorinated water can delay the process. Any sort of stress, illness or lack of proper care and good diet can also make it slow. Hence, maintain good health to have it healed on time.
