Can I wear high waisted jeans with a belly button piercing?

Do I need to have a “perfectly flat stomach” to get a belly button piercing? … No you don’t, in fact you‘ll like not having a perfectly flat stomach when getting it! One of my good friends from high school got hers done in between dance and softball seasons, and she is extremely thin and toned.
Can I put Vaseline on my belly piercing? Don’t use hydrogen peroxide or alcohol, which can slow healing. You may cover the area with a thin layer of petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline, and a non-stick bandage. Apply more petroleum jelly and replace the bandage as needed.
Showering with a New Belly Button Piercing
You should never soap up a new belly piercing directly, because soap can dry out your skin and irritate a new piercing. It’s okay if sudsy water runs over your belly button piercing when you’re showering, but you should wash it exclusively with sea salt solution.
Pain and Healing Time
Although you may think a belly button piercing wouldn’t hurt that much due to being on your stomach, it will hurt slightly—just like any other piercing. Because the skin on your stomach is fleshy, it’s true that you can probably expect it to be less painful than some sort of cartilage piercing.
