I had my belly pierced about 3 1/2 years ago now. I had it done after I stopped breastfeeding my baby. It really didn’t hurt at all. I looked after it well and never really had a problem with it till I changed rings over.
The new ring I put in was too big and kept catching on my clothes and then created an infection. I bought a spiral belly ring off the Internet from a place in the U.K.
It was 14kt gold. Since then it has been fine. Spiral belly rings are great because they don’t really catch onto your clothing. I love my belly ring and would recommend anyone thinking about getting one to go ahead and do it!
