Navel piercings are extremely fashionable in recent years and have made widespread changes towards a fashion statement. Going back five years ago, belly button piercing wasn’t that big of a fad, but over time it has become a very needed fashion statement among girls and women.
Navel piercing is very painful, but it gives it a girlish personality that sets it apart from the rest. Not only is navel piercing painful, it takes time to heal, and it’s not the same as ear piercings that take a week or two to heal. Navel piercings need at least a month to heal properly.
There are certain rules that must be followed to achieve a perfect belly button piercing without causing infection. These methods can be done to save time at home, but you need to be very careful. Before performing these navel piercing methods, you should ask a family member for help.
The best methods of navel piercing are detailed below.
Before you start, you need to have all the tools ready to do this process effectively so you don’t miss anything in the process. This tool is very important in the belly button piercing process. Prepare forceps, trinkets, needles, sterile gloves, and a numb bundle so that the pain subsides.
Wash and disinfect your hands with antibacterial soap to prevent infection by hand touching a freshly pierced belly. Washing your hands thoroughly can help you feel safer when piercing your stomach.
Use a disinfectant to disinfect the entire stomach, including the navel through which you will pierce. Cleaning your entire stomach will help prevent the spread of bacteria in your belly button when you puncture it.
Tools to be used must be disinfected with alcohol or disinfectant. When using this tool to pierce the navel, it is necessary to remove all germs so that there is no cause of infection.
Marking the point to be pierced with a marker is very important during the navel piercing process. Mark it exactly in the middle and look in the mirror to check, or ask someone else to check if necessary or confused.
Fix the skin with a sterile clamp in the center of the navel, already marked with a marker. Clamping the skin allows you to better hold it while inserting the needle. Use an anesthetic cream to reduce pain and start the process.
Now pierce the navel, but be careful not to hit the vein if you reposition it, as hitting the vein can cause excessive bleeding. Pierce the marked area precisely from bottom to top to get a proper belly button piercing.
When the needle comes out of the top, shake it gently and gently to open the hole a little. It is completely normal for some blood to be visible when piercing the skin, and shaking the hole will keep the hole open.
Insert the sterilized gemstone into the hole, the job is done, the area is cleaned and dried for a while, then the day goes on. Don’t forget to clean the area for a month every day until it’s completely healed and gives you a permanent navel piercing.
