There is no real danger by the piercing itself, but it is important to take care of it. The dangers are once it is in. The reason is that it is on the front of the body with clothing constantly rubbing against the piercing. People have a tendency to touch the piercing and transfer germs from their fingers to the ring. Once it rotates into the piercing a few bellybuttons that get infected. Do not keep taking them out. That is when problems people are having trouble with them, they are just not patient and they want to change too much.


As with other piercing's, the bellybutton piercing is going to be swollen, red, and have pus. It could be painful. The treatment of a new belly button piercing is to wash the ring, rotate it in, and put anti-bacterial ointment on it. If the piercing does not improve in the next couple of days, I would advise to pull out the piercing. Some bodies do not like piercing. It will not heal properly and it has nothing to do with the piercing itself or the artist. It has to do with that particular person's body. The bellybutton piercing can be rejected by the body.




It is not safe to pierce your own bellybutton. The piercing needs to be done with a sterilized needle, gloves and other sterilized pieces of equipment. Unless you have all that, you run a higher risk of infection. It could be six months before your piercing heals.
