The location of your navel is probably the most important factor when considering a belly button piercing if you are plus size lady. You want to make sure that your belly button is exposed (so not hidden beneath a tummy roll when you stand up or sit down) since you need air exposure for the piercing to heal.
In this way, is there a weight limit for belly button piercing?
Contrary to popular myth, however, whether or not a belly button piercing will work for you has nothing to do with weight. “What it comes down to is the anatomy in the area you are piercing, much more than someone’s overall body type,” she says.
Secondly, what is the longest size belly ring?
If your belly ring is just a bit tight, then 12mm or 14mm is the longest you want to go. If the threads barely show out the top when you insert a regular length belly ring, then 14mm or 16mm should be plenty long enough.
Can I wear high waisted jeans with a belly button piercing?
It is recommended that you do not wear high waisted jeans to your piercing appointment. Unless you pull them down to a degree, they’ll obstruct the piercing site. After you have your belly button pierced, high waisted jeans would compress the new, sore site and potentially snag your jewelry.
If so, it’s advisable to not re-pierce this area as the skin is traumatized; rejection can re-occur, and tearing is likely. Luckily, you have both a top and bottom area of your belly button that can be pierced, if it’s not recommended that you pierce the old scar tissue.
