People also ask, can a belly piercing be too small?
What do I do if my belly button piercing jewellery is too small but I can‘t change it for over a week? … You should have been pierced with a longer then normal bar in case it swells.

Additionally, what size belly ring should I get?
1,6mm (14G) is the standard and most common belly button piercing gauge size. 10mm (3/8inch) is the standard and most common length for belly button piercing. Every piercing professional pierces a little differently so length can sometimes vary from 6mm(1/4inch) to more rarely 12mm(1/2inch).
Do you have to have a flat stomach to get 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.
Changing jewelry will be quick and painless if you give the skin time to recover. The first sign that you are ready to change your ring is the look of your skin.

Can I gain or lose weight with a belly piercing?

Really, it’s neither attractive nor trashy. Attractive girls are gonna be attractive and the ones that aren’t will stay that way with or without the piercing. But belly button piercings are at least a lot better than any “face rings” that aren’t on the ears, I’ll give it that.
The most common initial jewelry choice for a navel piercing is a curved barbell, sometimes known as a “bananabell” because of its shape. Master piercer Elayne Angel says, “If your abdomen is relatively flat or your navel is not deep, bar-style jewelry is the best.”
When you’re at the piercing studio, you will need to:
- Choose jewelry that is least likely to irritate your skin.
- Verify that everything appears sterile and professional in the piercing room.
- Be prepared to endure a bit of pain (about the same as getting your ear lobe pierced)
- Pay (and tip) the piercer.
When you get a new piercing you should never sleep on the piercing side. For example, if you get a belly button piercing, you should not sleep on your stomach. Try to sleep on your back. … This may take some time to adjust for a certain sleeping position but it is worth it.
