Three Treatments You Should Do For Your Navel Piercing : We live in a pretty neat time in history when what was once considered a sign of social outliers and outcasts is now fairly commonplace. We are talking about body art, with particular concentration on belly button piercing.
It used to be that piercing a part of your body meant rocking a nice earring. These days, the idea of having a belly button piercing isn’t only not a big deal – it can also serve as a rite of passage.
There must have been some of you out there who went to the biggest city near your hometown when you were in college, and you all decided to get a piercing or a tattoo together. In this way, you will be “sisters” for life, and best friends forever.
At least, this is the idea until you have to be part of the audience when you see your roommate or dorm neighbor getting their belly button pierced. Some of you are triggered while others are shocked. Still, you all made a pact to be “sisters”, right?
One of the things you may not have listened carefully to when you had your belly button pierced is the aftercare process. The last thing you want is something wrong with your new body art, so now you have to stick to the after-care rules. You did it, and after a while, you get a sports croptop & low-key jeans.
So, if you are reading this & want to get your own belly button piercing, it is important to do so with the understanding that you will have to follow a treatment procedure after your piercer destroys it.
The procedure may change slightly from artist to artist, but all will agree on these three “musts”:
Wash Your Hands Thoroughly – This is the only reason germs spread in this world, however, it is one of the easiest things to do. Before you even think about putting your hands near your belly button, wash them with soap and warm water.
Wear Loose Clothing That Won’t Make Contact with the Piercing – It’s not about being cute or adorable – it’s about making sure you don’t irritate the area. By wearing clothing that avoids belly button piercings, you give the area a chance to fully heal.
Get Dixie Cups, Sea Salt and Purified Water First – Part of the aftercare job you have to do is keep your new piercing clean. It involves a saline solution in a cup and works with vacuum seal physics. Therefore, if you know you are going to have your belly button pierced, start buying grooming supplies before you get pierced.
Navel piercing can be a neat and sassy way to get into the world of body art. With the right mindset, a trusted piercer, and a willingness to follow regular follow-up care procedures, your piercing experience will be a wonderful one.
