The piercing is the needle through the tissue, so it is surely painful, the pain level can be bear for most people, not too much pain. The piercing pain is not the same as the tattoo pain, the piercing is like some spot, short time, the tattoo pain is like a line, last for a long time.

The belly button piercing is not easy to be infected, because it is not exposed to the air and be touched by the bacteria, but it is also not easy to heal, for the belly button parts have too much moved, you turn around, sit down, stand up and the clothes pulling, all these will affect the belly ring.

The belly button piercing migration is the belly ring move away from the original places. As we all know, because much body actions will touch the belly parts, like turn around, sit down, bent down, all these activities will pull on the belly tissue, then will make some pulling or drag to the belly jewelry, so the belly ring may move away little by little and then migrated.
To avoid these happen, please pay much more attention to your actions, especially in the first month when the piercing wound is in an important healing process.
4. Can belly button piercing cause stomach bloating?
I have to say that this is a weird question, for there is no medical relationship that can show that the belly piercing will cause stomach problems or bloating.
The piercing is done some puncture to the belly surface tissue, it may be a pain, maybe bleeding, but there will no side effects to the stomach, which the stomach is the organ inside the body. Often it is dieting or some disease that may cause stomach bloating.
5.Can belly button piercing close?
This question is similar to the septum piercing and all the other surface piercings. For these surface piercings, the puncture is to cut the tissues, so in a short time after piercing, the tissues may grow and recovery to the original. The piercing hole will be closed up. But if the piercing has lasted for a long time, the tissue can not grow up completely, even it grows up, there still keep a small hole there.
6. How clean belly button piercing?
The cleaning work is important, especially in the first month, the cleaning should do twice a day.Wash the hands first, prepare a cup of saline water, then use a cotton swab to clean around the piercing hole, do not touch the piercing hole or the belly jewelry. After cleaning, dry the saline with a clean towel.
