Pros and cons of belly button piercing

It is worth noting that navel piercing is not the easiest manipulation and belongs to a surgical variety. This is due to the fact that the intervention is carried out in the zone of internal tissues that border the abdominal cavity, where access to all internal organs is carried out. Therefore, the zone, unlike other places, is one of the most dangerous and fraught with complications. 

Some of the benefits of a belly button piercing include:  

  • Cute appearance  
  • You can wear belly button rings of different designs
  • Men love belly button piercings, find it sexy  
  • The ability to emphasize, and draw attention to your ideal figure  

Among the disadvantages of navel piercing are the following:  

  • High morbidity of the procedure 
  • Long wound healing time  
  • The possibility of a large number of complications, including suppuration and abscesses  
  • Traumatization of tissues and the ability to get into a biologically active point  

In general, you should think a hundred times before resorting to such a procedure, especially if the figure is far from ideal, and you are not going to wear open tops. If the figure is not very good, then the piercing should be postponed or abandoned altogether. That is why girls aged 14-20 most often resort to such manipulations. It is worth noting that if you are under 18 years old, then the cabin may be denied. In this case, written permission from the parents is required for the procedure. Otherwise, no one will pierce the navel of a teenager.

It is necessary to devote a lot of time and attention to the choice of a salon or a cosmetologist who will carry out the manipulation. The fact is that cleanliness is important, as well as the sterility of the salon. You can additionally come to the salon and order some inexpensive manipulation to look at the behavior of the masters, as well as the cleanliness.
