Piercing has been in a trend since the 90s. Mainly four body parts are famous in the piercing industry, and they are ear, nose, lips, and navel. Ear piercing has become a lot familiar nowadays (we mean different ear parts), every second person is getting different parts of ears pierced.
Nose piercing is more common among females while both men and women do septum nose piercing. The upper and lower lip piercing has also been in style.
Apart from all these piercing the sexiest one is navel piercing, also known as belly button piercing. But this piercing is also the one that needs the highest and intense care.
Before moving on to our actual topic, we would like to tell you something about the navel or belly button piercing. Firstly, not everyone is eligible for the navel piercing.
There isn’t any age-related issue, but by eligibility, we meant not every type of belly is qualified for navel piercing. For belly piercing, you need a good flap of skin above the stomach, if it isn’t there, then you are disqualified though you can try for lower belly piercing too.
And FYI, belly piercing can be done in the direction you want, upper, lower, right, left, wherever you want.
After the piercing is done, you will have to take intense care of the piercing; one wrong move can let the area get infected.
And for that, you will have to keep the pierced area clean (clean it with saline water for at least a month after piercing). There are many risks in this type of body piercing, and among them, some are allergic reactions, excessive bleeding, permanent scarring (if not taken care properly or if the Belly Button Ring has been pulled), infections, etc.
Take a decision only after considering the above situations. Now that you are sure about the navel piercing, we will tell you about the five basic types of belly button rings and only after reading the remaining article decide which kind of belly button rings you want to go for.
Banana Bell Ring
The most popular belly ring is the banana bell ring. This type of belly ring is generally seen with the top of 5mm and bottom of 8mm. It is the curved form of barbell rings.

Get yourself a golden banana belly ring having a skeleton with headphones, if you are a punk music lover. It will go best with denim shorts or jeans and a short flowy crop top.
Ball Captive Ring
This is a not-so-popular type of belly ring. Usually, it is recommended for the one who got piercing done with the captive ring as its shaping will be slightly different from the piercing done with the curved barbell.
Though they are less worn, these are the rings that are most fashionable and can give you a perfect beach look. The simple yet elegant looking BCR with a single diamond stud is the belly ring that you should opt for.
Top Drop Ring
Top drop or top dangle belly ring has a similar shape to the banana bell ring; the difference is it has dangle or jewelry at the one end, and it is recommended to keep that part on the upper side.
