What is a Belly Button Piercing

A belly button piercing is an opening in the skin of your belly button. It can be done by using a shallow navel puncture, where only the minimal amount of tissue is removed to create an opening for jewelry, or it can be done with a deeper insertion method, which removes more tissue and creates a larger hole.

It’s very much like earlobe piercings, which require a procedure called an “earlobe crease incision” to create a flat plane for the piercing needle.

Why Do People Get a Belly Button Piercing

People get belly button piercings because they get anybody’s modification. It’s a way to express their individuality, and it also serves as a conversation starter with friends or strangers that each has their own unique experiences.

Some people are interested in getting a piercing because they want to make their belly button look more attractive and aesthetically appealing. Others simply want to wear their navel jewelry as a fashion statement. Everyone has their reasons for getting a piercing that will be different from anyone else’s!

8 Simple Ways on How to Wear Jeans With Belly Button Piercing

1. Wear a Loose-fitting Shirt:

If you’re going to wear jeans with a belly button piercing, the best thing you can wear is a loose-fitting shirt. It will cover the top of your piercing and ensure that people looking at you from behind don’t see the piercing as clearly as they would if you were wearing tanks or crop tops.

Wear a Loose-fitting Shirt

If you’re insecure about the piercing, you can even wear two. Just make sure the shirts are loose-fitting enough that the bottom of your piercing isn’t visible.

2. Wear Skinny Jeans:

Skinny jeans hide everything, which is why they’re great at disguising belly button piercings! They’ll also help your jeans stay in place, which is helpful if you’re worried about people trying to see them.

3. Wear Leggings:

The same principle applies to leggings! If you wear dark-colored leggings, they will hide the piercing even more than light-colored ones. Nude-colored leggings are also a good choice. If you can find leggings with designs on them, such as polka dots or flowers, they will add some style to your outfit while still concealing any visible piercing.

4. Wear Long Shirts:

Long shirts look especially great if you’re wearing a belly button ring because they’ll conceal your piercing and the ring simultaneously. Long shirts are also great if you’re wearing leggings, especially jeans or other pants that aren’t as long as the shirt you’re wearing with them.

5. Wear a Scarf:

If you want to wear a shirt but still don’t want to show your belly button piercing, you can always wear a scarf. Scarves will come in handy not just during the winter months but all year round!

6. Wear Crop Tops:

If wearing an untucked shirt or a long one makes you feel self-conscious, try wearing a cropped top instead!  Crop tops are great because they can be worn untucked or tucked in. Just make sure that your piercing is either under the shirt or above it if you’re wearing one.

Wearing a Cropped Top

7. Wear Loose Sweaters:

Loose sweaters will fit over your piercing, so there’s no need to worry about it. If they’re also long enough to sit on the top of your jeans without showing anything beneath them, even better!

8. Wear Button-Up Shirts:

If you like wearing button-up shirts and want to wear them with your jeans, it is really easy to find ones that hide your piercing. Button-up shirts look great when they’re untucked; just make sure they’re long enough!

Some Tips and Suggestions

Here are some tips and suggestions on how to wear jeans with belly button piercing.

1. Wear jeans that fit.

2. Wear jeans that flatter your shape.

3. Do not wear low-rise jeans above the belly button; it’s not see-through and does not give the appearance of a navel piercing at all!

4. For your first pair of jeans, it may be helpful to get them tailored to fit your unique contours and flare out just below the belly button.

5. Invest in a belt that will help pull the look together and add dimension to your waistlines, such as a wide leather belt with a large buckle or a skinny stretchy belt.

6. Hems are your best friend when it comes to hiding the area just above where jeans sit on your hips. You can purchase standard hemmed jeans or take them to a tailor for alteration.

7. If you’re not ready to wear low-rise jeans, try pairing your flat-front slim-fit jeans with a longer top that falls at least to the hip.

8. If you’re comfortable wearing low-rise jeans, try high-waisted jeans with a shorter top or tunic, so they don’t slide down past your waistline.

How Long Until a Belly Button Piercing Stops Hurting

A belly button piercing may hurt for a little bit after it’s done, but the pain should go away very quickly after that. It may feel like a dull ache for a few days, and you also might still be swollen, but past that point, your piercing will probably not cause much discomfort at all.

Your stomach won’t even remember that the needle went through. The exception to this is if you get your belly button pierced during or after pregnancy, which can cause pain that lasts much longer. It may be tender, itchy, and swollen for weeks at a time. If your piercing becomes infected, the pain will be much worse.

How Long Until a Belly Button Piercing Heals

As with most piercings, the average healing time for a new belly button piercing is about three to four weeks, but it can take up to six months or longer to heal fully. This is because when your piercing was done, you had an opening in your skin that allowed the needle to pass through.

Your body is constantly renewing itself, and it eventually heals that opening up. The piercing will shrink into a narrow channel of scar tissue that stretches from the edge of your old navel piercing to your new hole. This process can take a few weeks or many months, depending on how fast you heal.

Can You Wear High-waisted Bottoms With a Belly Button Piercing

Yes, you can wear high-waisted bottoms with a belly button piercing. However, each type of piercing is different and has its post-care guidelines. For example, the only time I would advise against wearing high-waisted pants (or shorts, skirts, etc.) would be if your piercing specifically instructed not to expose it to water.

I know, for example, that fresh piercing is required to avoid water submersion until they are fully healed. This article about post-piercing care lists the initial weeks of healing as one of the times you should abstain from submersion.

Will My Belly Button Piercing Straighten Out

A belly button piercing can straighten out, especially if you gain and lose a lot of weight. However, if the skin in your navel area is not very elastic, it won’t stretch easily and will stay wrinkled even when you’re at an average weight. Also, after getting pierced, your navel might elongate temporarily if you gain some weight.

This is especially likely during pregnancy. Unfortunately, the piercing may straighten out if you gain too much weight. A navel piercing can also stretch or tear during childbirth. After your baby is born, the hole will probably shrink to about half its original size within several weeks or months after giving birth.

It might take longer than that for it to shrink enough to allow you an insertion ring. An insertion ring is a piece of jewelry with the same diameter as the space left after shrinking. If your piercing does not shrink back to allow for an insertion ring, you may need to have it re-pierced.
