- does not work on every anatomy, we recommend having an alternative piercing when booking (here sometimes a decision can be made based on a picture in sitting, standing & lying position)
- not every navel is the same, there are nails that are a so-called floating navel (here the focus is more on the upper attachment, the one below is usually only slightly visible or not at all)
- can grow out, depending on the anatomy
- specifics: tight clothing such as high waist trousers must be avoided; avoid contact with foreign metals (belt buckles, press studs, zips) during healing (otherwise contact allergies can occur with open wounds).
- Initial use: curved barbell
- after healing, a ring can be worn, depending on the anatomy
- needs a shorter bar after the swelling phase
- usually needs to be shortened from time to time over the years
- usually forms larger scars
- for minors: if your parents are much taller than you and a growth spurt is expected, please wait with the piercing, otherwise it can change its position.
- sports: avoid everything that strains, stretches or presses the abdomen for as long as possible (at least 10-12 weeks).
- pregnancy: should be removed after large growth & can usually be reinserted after pregnancy.
Healing time: 9-12 months
