Navel Industrial – Not Every Girl Has It!

If you’re getting bored of the usual navel piercings  have a look at this. Navel industrial!
To put it simply it’s a multiple navel piercing project where two navel piercings are joined together using a single barbell.

You can have either one or even two navel industrials in your belly button. If you go for the second option, your piercings will resemble a cross.

But as you can imagine, the belly button is subject to quite a wide range of movements. After all it’s the waistline and when you lean forward or sit down the skin folds around your navel push together. So it would be a wise idea to insert separate belly button rings in both (or four if you go for a double-navel industrial) fresh belly piercing holes.

If you want to go for a single barbell straight away, it would be wise to choose at least some flexible belly industrial piercing – PTFE barbell is the best option for this purpose. You can cut it to size and then screw the balls on. The shaft is self-threading and the piercer won’t have any problems with getting it done.

By the way, read this navel industrial piercing story. The piercer did something I wouldn’t have done – he just bent a simple barbell and inserted it into the fresh navel industrial project! The girl was very happy with the piercing though, and it seems the healing process was OK.

However, I warmly suggest if you go for a navel industrial piercing, get at least this PTFE barbell inserted. But, of course, you can also go for separate belly rings in each hole while the piercing heals, and insert the industrial barbell when the fresh navel piercings have properly healed  in about a couple of months.

Are you looking for First Time Belly Button Rings?

First Time Belly Button RingsWhen you are on your search for first time belly button rings, there are many things that you have to consider. The material is one of them and it is so important to choose the right material for your piercing.

Many people make the mistake of choosing the most attractive ring for their first piercing. However, if you do this then you could end up putting yourself at risk of a nasty infection. Just as when you have your ears pierced, you will usually be given a simple design to wear until the piercing has healed.

However, if you would like to choose your own belly ring then you can; you just need to follow some basic rules.

What Belly Button Rings to Look For

When searching for the perfect first time belly button rings, you need to look for certain materials. One of the most common is Bioplast and it is ideal because it has a non-stick surface. It is not uncommon for crust to form after you have had your naval piercing. If this isn’t cleaned then it can cause an infection. Some belly button rings attract the crust and it sticks to the surface, making it hard to remove. Bioplast navel rings eliminate this problem and they are more hygienic to wear.

Another good material to choose is titanium. One of the best things about titanium belly rings is that they are quite light to wear. Stainless steel is a good material to opt for, but unfortunately they can be slightly heavy. So if you are not used to wearing a belly ring then it could be a little too uncomfortable. Also there are many fake stainless steel rings out there which could cause a reaction to the skin. This means that you have to be extra careful when choosing stainless steel belly rings.

So when you do choose your ideal first time belly button rings, make sure that you choose from the materials above. So many people do not realise that their first ring is an important one. You cannot just choose any old design as it could cause problems. Overall if you follow the advice above you will end up having the best belly ring to suit your needs.

Myths About Belly Piercing

Belly Piercing Myths

Did the ancient belly dancers have belly piercing? And what about the ancient Egyptians?…

I guess we’ve all seen middle-east belly dancers on the TV shaking their sexy midriffs…And of course, belly chains around their waists and belly piercing in their navels.

However, the truth is a bit different. Accordingly to a number of info sources I found on the Net, the belly dancers of the old days DIDN’T have belly button piercing!

The myth of the belly dancers having belly button piercings was created in the early 20th century by Hollywood producers trying to get around the Hayes Code – high morale standards for motion picture production. Among many things this code forbade…exposing bare belly buttons on the screens:-)

They found a smart solution – jewel glued in the belly button. This way the very navel was covered and not visible – but at the same time the actors didn’t have to cover their waists and spoil all the appearance as belly dancers.

Since those days the jewels have changed into belly button rings and this has been adapted by nearly all the western belly dancing industry. And we all believe it’s a common practice of traditional belly dancing!

Some sources say that navel piercing has been a practise of nobles in the ancient Egypt – pharaohs and close standing persons had pierced their navels as a sign of their royalty.

And again – this is a fad. There are no records in history that would suggest the ancient Egyptian royalty have had belly piercings.

Of course, there might be some occasions of individual navel piercings. However, it is widely recognised that belly button piercing is purely an appearance of modern times having started in late 70ies and gained worldwide popularity by the early 90ies.

Choose your navel jewelry from wide range of belly button ring sizes – from tiny ones to extra long and thick ones!

A standard sized belly button ring is 1/16″ (1.6mm) thick and 3/8″ (9.5mm) or 7/16″ (11mm) long and the ball sizes are 5mm and 8mm with the largest ball at the bottom of the belly ring.




In fact, this is the difference between bananabells and common curved barbells – the last ones have balls of one size, but bananabells or belly button rings are specially designed for wearing in navels. The biggest ball sits in the middle of the navel and looks spot on!

When you visit body jewelry stores, you’ll see that every store offers different options for choosing the size of navel jewelry you want to buy. Some only indicate the thickness of the shaft in gauges, some will let you choose the length of it, but some allow you to choose the best combo of gauge and length from the drop-down menu. Some won’t say any sizes at all and in that case you have to presume that it’s a standard sized belly ring.

In our belly rings shop the size range is quite big for needs of everyone. Belly ring sizes vary from 16ga to 10ga in diameter and from tiny 1/4″ to 5/8″ in length. If you need even a longer belly ring (say, in case of pregnancy), you should consider buying a PTFE or bioplast belly ring.

Below are the belly button ring sizes – and you can clearly see how thick is a certain gauge belly ring shaft.

Body Jewelry Gauge

They insert standard belly rings at piercing studios and your piercing size is most likely to fit a 14ga thick and 3/8″ long shaft. Just to make yourself sure, measure your navel ring and see if it isn’t longer than 3/8″.

The widest belly button ring sizes range are our belly rings shop – see it yourself. You’re about getting pierced and can’t decide what size piercing to buy? You can buy a navel ring of any gauge and length! Maybe you want the shaft be a bit thicker. Or you want the top end of the ring to emerge out of your skin a bit higher than usually.

Piercer will use the piercing needle of the same gauge and you’ll get the piercing you want. Only thing I’d suggest and I think many piercers would agree – don’t go for extra short shafts. The skin fold might be too thin to fit 1/4″ long belly ring and the piercing can migrate out of the skin – as they sometimes do.

Here’s a very comprehensive body jewelry gauge chart for both metric and US measurement systems:

Belly chain emphasises your whole waist – not only the navel

Have a navel piercing? Or don’t? In either case you can wear a belly chain gracefully wrapped around…

A belly chain puts accent not only on your navel but on all your waist and adds some kind of oriental touch – at least so it seems to me:-)

There are two kinds of belly chains – ones that can be worn without having a belly button piercing and those to be attached to a navel ring. So it doesn’t really matter if you like body piercing or not – belly body chain jewelry is for any of you who like being stylish and feeling well!

Ruby Red TRIBAL DESIGN No. 1 BACK Belly Chain

Some non-piercing belly chains have an emphasis on the lower back where the two ends coming from either flank come together and descend. They may have the design of a tribal tattoo – so popular amongst girls!

Others are simplier with little charms dangling at the chain and without any additional back ornaments.

Those chains that come together with belly rings are usually attached to an adornment of the bottom ball. Many of these have additional dangles or short chains hanging from the rings and the adjustable chain’s ends – yes, anyone can adjust them accordingly to the waist size – hang from the belly ring, too.

I think these body adornments make a woman’s body look more supple and a bit exotic – let’s remember belly dancers, didn’t they wear such pieces of belly jewelry?

Be aware of belly button ring infections – you can get them if you don’t follow the piercing aftercare guidelines.




The following article was submitted by a close friend of mine. I think it’s a great example of a problem experienced by thousands of people all around the world.

By Jim, from Arizona.

My wife got her belly button pierced but she didn’t take care of her new piercing well enough. She was given all the information needed to take a good care of her new belly button piercing. She was told to Belly Button Ring Infectionapply a saline solution twice a day to help the new belly button piercing to heal.

Although in the real life it happens a bit differently… We’re busy at work, have to do our chores at home, spend time with kids, and so on and on.  In this fast-paced life we often forget many important things. However, if you get a piercing, make sure to make time for it! If you ignore it or forget it, you will regret it!

In the picture above you can see my wife’s infected belly button piercing. You can see a red crusty edge around the belly button ring’s exit in the inner part of the navel. The other hole is also a bit reddish. These are sure signs of a belly button infection.

Initially my wife applied alcohol, although she was told by the piercer not to. Why didn’t she listen to him? We had a notion that alcohol cleans the wound and helps it – like when you have a cut on your finger. There was one thing we missed. Alcohol disinfects – not heals. Alcohol, peroxide and other corrosive agents dry out the wound and slows healing considerably.

Around that time I started to look up info regarding body piercing on the Internet and having read navel piercing aftercare information I realised we’d been wrong. Using sea salt and antibacterial soap is number one things to do to help your body heal the fresh piercing.

Later on a red bump formed inside of my wife’s navel right under the piercing and it burst one day when my wife touched the belly ring. Lots of puss and blood oozed out and a small piece of flesh was sticking out as well!

I know we should have gone to a doctor but we didn’t…

It vanished in a couple of weeks after successfully performing hot soaks in shower and saline solution soaks.

However, I really suggest you do it, because I think it was an abscess – a collection of puss formed due to the belly button ring infection and the growth of bacteria inside. And then only a professional can decide if a course of antibiotics is needed or some other kind of treatment.

Belly button ring infection was gone in about a month’s time and when another month had passed, the belly button piercing was finally healed.

How to avoid common infections.

In the picture below you can see how the piercing looks after five months – and my wife’s ready to insert new belly rings:-)
