You may not be aware that in some cultures belly button piercings can symbolize many things. They represent strength, fertility and even courage. Getting piercings has been something that both men and women partake in. A belly button piercing is something that is a little more popular with women than men.
Also to know is, do belly button piercing holes go away?
If you realize right away that your new notch is not for you, it’s likely to close on its own. “When you get a piercing, it takes four to six weeks for it to heal up, after which time the hole can be permanent,” says New York dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD.

Originally Answered: Why do some girls (especially dancers) have navel piercings? Because it draws your eye to the part of their anatomy they’re trying to show off. And especially dancers because they’re more likely to have a body type that will show off the piercing to good effect.
It’s not a matter of can/can‘t, but rather should/shouldn’t. The shape of the navel doesn’t matter too much, any navel can be pierced if there is enough tissue depth to the skin available above or below the navel.
Any piercing can close up. It’s a wound and skin naturally tries to heal. If you keep it in without ever taking it out for like years and then take it out for a day or something, you’ll be fine. But if you leave it out for too long(the time for healing varies widely between people), it could close up.
Answer: Will my navel piercing hole close over? If you still have a piercing hole after five years then its very unlikely it will now close. The hole has formed a “scar” and is now lined with skin keeping the tract open.
Some piercing establishments are of the opinion that you cannot get re-pierced in the same location. This is not true. Scar tissue (fibrosis) which has formed as a result of your piercing being removed, is quite dense. Also, it is often just the entry and exit points which have healed over.
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.
After you get your belly button pierced, you should:
Clean it two to three times a day with saline solution for at least the first month. Avoid tight clothing around your midsection, tanning beds, hot tubs, public pools, and sleeping on your stomach until the piercing is at least mostly healed.

It sounds like you need to get a thicker bar for the piercing. If a bar is too thin and the skin tight enough, the skin will slowly eject the piercing. A lot of people call this “the cheese grater effect.” Buy new jewelry that has a thicker gauge than your current jewelry.
