that you keep your original piercing jewellery in place for at least 10
weeks however it is advisable to wear navel jewellery until the piercing
is fully healed internally, which can be anything from 6 months to 18 months.
Wearing of ball closure rings or spirals can create problems in
unhealed piercings as, due to their design, they are prone to
movement. This movement can make the piercing sore and encourage
the piercing to move (migrate). When worn during healing, rings
can also cause infection as when they spin they can take debris
into the piercing.
Measure your piercing from hole to hole when lying flat
for standard navel piercings (your skin stretches) or when standing for
lower navel piercings. We would advise adding 1mm to the length for barbells
or 3mm for a ring (i.e. a piercing measuring 10mm should wear an 11mm barbell
or a 13mm ring).
