A navel, belly, or stomach piercing is a type of body modification where a small hole is made in the skin above or around the navel (belly button), through which a piece of jewelry, such as a belly ring, can be worn. This type of piercing is also known as a “umbilical piercing”, “belly button piercing”, or “navel piercing”. The navel piercing is done using a sterilized needle, and healing time can vary from person to person, but typically ranges from 4-12 months. It’s important to take proper care of the piercing to avoid infection and promote healing. This includes cleaning the piercing regularly with saline solution and avoiding tight clothing or activities that can cause friction on the piercing.
