Belly Piercing

Madonna Showed Us a Style

Back in the 1990s, pop star and diva Madonna showed us how to wear belly piercings in chic ways, and the vogue caught on from then. But the navel piercing act isn’t new-age fashion as such. If you take a look into the records of the Egyptian scrolls, you would find relics and heliographs that talk about bellies pierced. The pharaohs were known to pierce their bellies, women and the younger men especially, to flaunt a status symbol when in public.

It wasn’t just about the bra burning scenario only, but women went full throttle with chic body art and pierces, to prove a point on equality! But remember, it isn’t your BELLY as such that gets pierced, but the skin that surrounds the belly.

The Multi Navel Piercings

In the multi navel pierce, the rim would be pinched and poked many times to accommodate more than one piercing. There is a reasonable amount of space between the pierces, so as to allow the skin to heal and no infection should set in it.

The Teardrop Captive Bead Ring

With the help of a captive beaded ring that’s round, the bead would be pierced into the belly with the pointed side resting outwards and the bar would be curved into the shape of D. One has to be very careful while trying out this style, since more skin tissue would be poked into, so that the captive teardrop bead ring is placed properly.

The Semi-Captive Bead Ring

There are types of belly piercing which have deep and very well-defined rims and navel pinches, worn with round captive rings. The rings cannot be too small or too big, and cannot be switched on to something else at a later stage. The lower ball of the captive ring sits pretty on the navel depth quite deep and can be a cause of pain and discomfort later. Hence, this is a style that isn’t suitable for the weak or the novice!
