You can buy a belly button ring of your choice before you go to the studio!
You just have to know which materials don’t react against body tissues and allow your navel piercing heal quickly.
Below I’ve listed the best options for first time belly piercings.
2) Stainless Steel
Choose 14k gold or higher when buying yellow gold, or choose nickel- free white gold. Gold rings are durable, safe and extremely stylish. Our range starts at $29.99 and there is free worldwide delivery. For the ultimate in elegance, check out the new Gold and Diamond collection, all of which are above 14k and nickel-free.
According to mainstream body jewelry opinion, bioplast is the best choice for your first time belly button piercing. This material is great because of its biocompatibility and flexibility. If you use this material, your fresh piercing will be less likely to get infected and swollen – bioplast is proven to have great healing qualities. If you’re allergic to metal body jewelry, I recommend bioplast navel rings as the best from non-metallic belly button jewelry.
Belly button piercings made from steel are fine for your first time navel piercing. This metal used in body jewelry is hypo-allergenic alloy. There are a few other metals added to make it resistant to corrosion and prevent rusting, but these don’t have an adverse affect on the quality of the jewelry. Stainless steel is most widely used metal for making belly ring shafts – the balls and dangles come in many other materials.
If you want to buy a steel belly piercing, you don’t have to search for “steel belly rings” or try to find a category saying “steel”. Most of belly jewelry is made from steel unless it says “gold”, “titanium” or “PVD coated” etc.
This is a great choice because it’s a very strong metal and is nearly as twice as light as stainless steel. I recommend titanium belly rings if you are sensitive to steel. Titanium is a pure metal and isn’t mixed with anything else. In addition, titanium body jewelry comes in different colors, but watch out! – not red or black. If you see a black belly button ring and it’s said to be titanium, it’s more likely a stainless steel plated with titanium, which is not the best choice for the first time belly button piercings.
So – let’s conclude with what you have to do to get the belly ring before making to the piercing studio:
1) Choose a belly button ring made from one of the above mentioned materials.
2) Make sure it doesn’t have any parts that can’t undergo sterilization – acrylic or flexible plastic dangles and balls.
3) Be prepared to take care of your piercing! H2 ocean (below) and cleaning swabs are highly recommended.
