For most piercings surgical stainless steel is used in the initial period. Surgical steel or 316l surgical stainless steel is a metal which is hypoallergenic and hence does not cause any reaction to the skin. Surgical steel is also highly durable and products made from surgical steel are inexpensive. The one minor disadvantage associated with surgical steel is that it is slightly heavy than other metals. However, all the other good features actually compensate for that. While getting your belly pierced, make sure that the surgical steel jewelry used by your piercer is a true implant-designation steel alloy. Some fake materials are also available in the market which can cause irritation.
Niobium and titanium are good alternatives for surgical steel. Titanium is light weight and strong and hence makes for great body jewelry choice. Niobium also shares all the good qualities of titanium and is also reasonably priced. What makes these two metals unique is that they can be anodized, that is treated with heat to produce different colors like green, blue, purple, pink and so on. So, they provide greater variety in colors than any other metal.
Other than these options, 9-14 and 18k gold and 925 sterling silver are also used for body piercing jewelry. Even nickel-free brass is used sometimes but with plating options.
