Belly (navel) piercing is among the most popular types of piercings. Luckily, it also means there are enough quality, body-safe jewelry pieces you can find. Belly jewelry comes in many different styles, materials and sizes, so you’ll sure be able to find something you truly like.

Choosing Safe Jewelry

The large number of different belly jewelry pieces also means that there are many subpar jewelry products you can find. You can buy belly jewelry almost anywhere: at a mall, or even on the streets. More often than not, these jewelry pieces are of poor quality and can endanger your health.

To keep yourself safe, it’s important to stick to reliable stores and only use jewelry made of body-safe materials. This is the only way to ensure satisfaction and to keep yourself safe and healthy. It also means you will have to pay a bit more than for that cheap jewelry piece you can find at a mall, but trust us, it’s a money well-spent. You don’t want to endanger your health, risk allergies (or worse conditions), experience infections and inflammation, or have your piercing rejected, just to save a few bucks. At the same time, you don’t really have to spend a fortune on a quality jewelry piece. There are many reasonably priced but still high-quality products you can find. What is important is to stay away from the cheap pieces (cheap both in price and craft).

Navel Piercing Tips

To keep yourself on the safe side and to keep your belly piercing clean, you need to stick to a few rules. Here are the basic navel piercing tips to follow:

  • Wait until your belly piercing is fully healed to change your jewelry. It’s true that most initial piercing jewelry pieces are very plain and simple, but there’s a reason for it. It’s understandable that you want to try different jewelry styles, but patience is important here. You need to wait for your new belly piercing to completely heal before you can try new jewelry. Remember, it can take as long as 9 months for your belly piercing to heal completely. In the most cases, it’s safe to change jewelry after 4-6 months, but keep in mind that healing time is individual.
  • Make sure to protect your belly jewelry from being snagged on clothing during healing time. Use an eye patch or hard plastic and secure it over your belly to protect both the piercing and jewelry.
  • Most common belly jewelry pieces are 3/8 inches long, but there are many other sizes to choose from. When picking the best belly jewelry for yourself, make sure that it’s not too small. Short navel jewelry can irritate the skin and it opens the door to infections and inflammation.
  • Always pick lightweight belly jewelry pieces. Heavy jewelry can make your skin sore and it can stretch your piercing even if you don’t want that to happen. Not to mention that heavy jewelry can make a problem when moving or changing clothes. If you really love heavy jewelry, don’t wear it for a long period of time. Never sleep with heavy belly jewelry.
  • Be careful with overly complicated jewelry pieces. There are many gorgeous belly curved barbells with lots of gems and dangles, and it’s understandable you might want to wear them in special situations. However, these jewelry pieces are best not to be worn every day. They can get caught on clothes. Also, these jewelry pieces are there to be shown, so wear them only when you want to have your belly shown.
  • People with the so-called “outie” belly button can have a true navel piercing, where the navel itself is pierced (as the opposite of just the skin above or under it). These people can also wear unique jewelry pieces in their belly piercing.

Important Notes about Nickel Allergy

NNickel allergy is pretty common. It’s often caused by your jewelry, including body jewelry. Many people are sensitive to nickel that can be found in many metals. This is why body jewelry containing nickel is not considered body-safe. While there are many people who are not affected by nickel, this allergy is very common so it’s important to choose only nickel-free jewelry.

Symptoms of Nickel Allergy

Nickel allergy has several common symptoms so it’s usually easy to recognize it. It can manifest as itching, swelling, flaking, soreness or inflammation. It’s usually easy to recognize the allergy because it appears when you wear jewelry (or other types of metal accessories, such as watches). Your skin will change the color and you will experience other symptoms of allergy.

This is your body’s response to various metal alloys (first and foremost, nickel) used in many metal jewelry pieces. Many metal jewelry pieces, especially ones of the lower quality, contain nickel or other alloys. These alloys can cause allergies.

In most cases, allergies are mild, but it doesn’t mean they should not be avoided. Also, it’s important to know that there are people with a serious nickel allergy. For this reason, it’s important to wear only body-safe, nickel-free jewelry.

Safe Jewelry

Body jewelry should be made of a safe material that doesn’t cause allergies. To avoid nickel allergy, you need to wear nickel-free body jewelry. There are many nickel-free materials you can use. The most popular of them all is titanium.

Titanium is a premium body jewelry material that doesn’t cause allergies. There are many beautiful titanium body jewelry pierces to choose from. Titanium jewelry comes in many different colors so it’s very effective while being completely body safe.

Another choice is high-quality Surgical Steel. It’s very important to use only jewelry made of the best Surgical Steel that’s approved for body use.

When it comes to gold, it’s vital to stick to nickel-free gold. Always check the label on your jewelry or ask your jeweler about the gold used for the jewelry. Gold often contains nickel as an alloy, so it’s vital to use only nickel-free gold jewelry.

Another good way to go to avoid nickel jewelry is to use organic body jewelry pieces. This type of jewelry is made of organic materials such as glass, wood, horn, bone or stone. These materials don’t contain nickel. However, to be on the safe side, make sure that your chosen organic material is body-safe so it doesn’t cause another type of allergy.

Choosing high-quality, body-safe jewelry is the best way to avoid nickel allergy. This is why it’s important to purchase your jewelry at reliable stores. You don’t have to pay a fortune for your body jewelry but you shouldn’t go cheap either. Cheap, low-quality jewelry is made of inferior materials and can cause numerous problems, including nickel allergy.

Is Ever OK to Wear Unsafe Body Jewelry Materials?

With so many different materials around, it’s sometimes difficult to choose the right jewelry. You’ve probably heard about body-safe materials and the importance of choosing them for your body jewelry. It’s crucial that you pick jewelry made of materials that are safe for you to wear. Meaning: materials which don’t cause allergic reactions, infections or other problems.

It’s well-known which materials are body-safe and frequently used for body jewelry: surgical steel, titanium, bio-plastic, and more. However, it’s also important to know when it’s crucial that you wear jewelry made of these materials and when it’s ok to wear other materials. There are certain types of jewelry or parts of jewelry that can safely be made of other materials without compromising your health. This way, even if you are sensitive, you will be able to wear hybrid and composite jewelry pieces made of several materials.

When to Use Safe Materials

Using body jewelry made of body-safe materials is crucial for numerous things, first and foremost, your health. Certain materials are not suitable to be worn as piercing jewelry because they can cause allergic reactions and infections. Of course, it’s important to note here that a material known to cause allergies can still be worn by you if you are not allergic. However, for initial piercings and most piercing jewelry types, using safe materials (surgical steel, titanium) is the best way to go.

What about hybrid jewelry made of several types of materials? Are they ok to wear? The answer will depend on several factors, one of them being your allergic reactions. As a rule of thumb, however, it’s ok to wear composite jewelry made of different materials as long as the “unsafe” material doesn’t go through your piercing and/or it doesn’t touch your skin.

In practice, it means that the part of the jewelry (barbell, captive bead ring, etc.) inserted into the piercing must be made of a body safe material. It’s best to use popular body jewelry materials, such as surgical steel (not stainless steel!) or titanium. Surgical steel is probably the most popular material used for body piercing and it offers numerous advantages. It’s reasonably prices, smooth, durable and easy to clean.

Titanium is another highly-recommended material. It’s hypoallergenic, very strong but light and it can be anodized to make a wide variety of colors (blue, purple, rainbow, etc.) Titanium and surgical steel are ideal for initial piercings and can be used for all types of piercing jewelry.

Some other materials are also good to use. Bio-plastic, for example, is a very flexible and it’s a good choice for initial piercings, particularly facial piercings. Gold is also a good (safe) material, but it’s not recommended for initial piercings and its downside is a high price.

When to Use “Unsafe” Materials

Generally speaking, unsafe materials should never be used for body jewelry. However, it’s still possible to wear jewelry partially made of these materials as long as the material doesn’t go through the piercing hole and as long as it doesn’t touch your body.

A good example of this are various gems and other ornaments worn on the balls of straight or circular barbells. These materials can add color and beauty to jewelry without compromising health because they don’t come in touch with the piercing itself. Same can be said for various chains, pendants and other ornaments made to highlight different body jewelry styles.

One of the most popular materials of this type is Sterling Silver. It’s very beautiful and soft, so it’s suitable for making many elaborate designs and unique patterns. However, Sterling Silver should not be inserted in any part of the body so any jewelry containing this material should have a basis (shaft) made of surgical steel or titanium.

Popular Piercings and Jewelry Types

Piercing is a popular form of body modification and all enthusiast who love various piercing styles can enjoy many different types of jewelry. The choice of jewelry is often a very personal one. In a way, it will depend on the body part and the type of piercing you have. For example, certain piercing types require straight barbells as the basic form of jewelry while others require curved barbells, captive bead rings, flesh tunnels, etc. Generally speaking, though, most piercings can use many different types of body jewelry, so it’s often the question of one’s personal preferences and style.

Your body jewelry should suit you and make you express yourself in the best possible way. It should show who you are and it should be something you truly like and feel comfortable with. Many people have one style they stick to, while others like to experiment. Some people prefer simple body jewelry types while others go for more elaborate, complex designs. There is no right or wrong way to go here.

There are some popular piercing types and body parts many people choose to pierce, and these piercings often require a certain type of jewelry. Within these types, you are free to choose designs you like the most.

Earlobe

Earlobe piercing is the most common body piercing. It’s so common and socially accepted that it’s often not even considered body piercing in “true” sense. There are many types of earrings people like to wear in their earlobes, and the choice of designs and materials is endless. Rings, dangling jewelry types and other forms are popular.

Special type of earlobe piercing is a stretched earlobe piercing, erroneously known as “gauge”. These piercings are stretched to a larger size so a different type of jewelry can be worn in the stretched hole, such as ear plug, earlet, flesh tunnel, tusk, spiral, and others. These jewelry types are often made of organic materials and they can be very effective. The “trick” when choosing jewelry for stretched piercing is to always choose the correct gauge. Wrong size can put a pressure on your piercing and tear your earlobe, which can lead to infections and other problems. Therefore, before choosing a design you like, you need to make sure the jewelry is of a correct gauge and also made of a body-safe material you can wear safely.

Ear Cartilage

Various types of ear cartilage piercings are also popular. These piercings are suitable for many different jewelry types, so you can choose between rings or barbells, depending on your style. People who have multiple cartilage piercings often like to connect them with the same jewelry piece. The most popular form of this is the industrial piercing, usually connected by a long straight barbell, but there are other possibilities. Some people use spiraled barbells or chains to connect their cartilage piercings. Many jewelry types also incorporate dangling gems or pendants.

Navel

Navel piercing is one of the most popular forms of piercings. Jewelry used for this type of piercing is often known as “belly rings” or “navel rings”, even though the most popular jewelry type for this type of piercing is not a ring but a curved barbell. There are many curved barbell designs to choose from, such as simple surgical steel barbells with spherical balls or more elaborate designs with pendants, gems and other ornaments.

Another popular type of jewelry for this type of piercing is the actual ring. Captive bead rings are popular, but their downside is that they can get caught on clothing. Therefore, they are recommended only for fully healed piercings.

Nose

Certain types of nose piercings are very common. Nostril piercing, for example, is among the most popular forms of piercing. It is a relatively simple piercing and jewelry types used for this piercing are simple but very effective. Many people choose simple studs and nose screws with bright gems on top for nostril piercings. A good thing about this type of piercing is that it can be very understated and easy to hide for work and other occasions: all you need to do is to choose a flesh-colored nose plug or stud. Some people prefer to wear nose rings instead of studs and screws.

Another popular type of nose piercing is septum piercing. It is a bit more complex type of piercing but it’s very effective. There are many different jewelry designs suitable for this type of piercing, such as rings and curved barbells. Depending on the style, a septum piercing jewelry can be simple or bold and more pronounced.

Eyebrow

Another popular piercing location is the eyebrow. Eyebrow piercing can look very beautiful and effective, but the downside is that eyebrow piercing tends to be very sensitive. Remember, eyebrow piercing is basically a surface piercing, which means there’s a relatively high risk of migration and rejection.

Also, this type of piercing has a high risk of becoming infected. For this reason, it’s important to choose jewelry carefully and with some consideration. Make sure to pick a body safe jewelry material and a jewelry suitable to be worn in an eyebrow piercing without a problem. Simple barbells look effective and they don’t pose much problems. Rings are another popular choice but you need to be careful not to make them caught on the clothing or hair.

Lips and Tongue

Titanium Micro Labret

Titanium Micro Labret

Many people choose to get their lips and tongue pierced. These piercings are very common but it’s important to be careful because of the sensitive tissue. Also, another risk associated with this type of piercings come from the fact lips and tongue regularly come in contact with food, so it’s another thing to keep in mind.

Generally speaking, lip piercings usually use labrets. This is a perfect jewelry type for this form of piercing. It’s effective but relatively simple and it doesn’t interfere with eating or brushing your teeth. However, labrets are not the only jewelry type used for lip piercings; many people prefer to use rings and other jewelry types.

Tongue piercing is more complex and the healing time is longer, so it requires special attention. Jewelry used for tongue piercing must be made of high-quality, body safe materials because it comes in contact with sensitive tissue.

Genital Piercing

While not as common as other type of body piercings, genital piercing has many proponents. Both men and women choose different types of genital piercings and jewelry types. As a general rule, jewelry worn in a genital piercing must be made of a high quality, body-safe material. Most jewelry types are relatively simple in design and have a smooth surface so they don’t pose a problem while walking or sitting. One advantage of genital piercing is that it can be used to enhance sexual pleasure for both partners.

Is Silver Jewelry Safe?

Silver Star Nipple Chain With Titanium Straight Barbell

When it comes to body jewelry, material is important. In fact, it’s probably one of the most important things you need to think about. Quality, body-safe materials are crucial because they will make your experience positive. Bad materials can cause various problems, from allergic reactions to infections, so they are best to be avoided.

Most people know about the popular body-safe materials: titanium, surgical steel and gold. These materials are often used to make all types of body jewelry, from barbells and captive bead rings to other types of jewelry.

Silver, on the other hand, doesn’t appear often on those lists. This is a bit strange: after all, silver is a precious (noble) metal and it’s very beautiful. While it’s not as popular or valued as gold, many people love it and want to wear body jewelry made of it.

So, is silver safe to wear?

In short: yes. Silver is a safe metal for body jewelry. This statement comes with a few conditions, though, so make sure you are familiar with them. Read them through before you decide to wear body jewelry made of silver. Most people can wear silver jewelry without a problem but some consideration should be made to ensure the best experience without any negative body reactions.

Generally speaking, silver is a good material to use because it’s precious and jewelry made of it is typically well-crafted. It’s better to use silver jewelry than many cheap types of jewelry made of questionable materials. This jewelry is also more durable than jewelry made of many other types of materials.

Silver, however, may also be the source of an allergy. First of all, there are people allergic to silver. If you are one of those people then silver body jewelry is not for you. Since silver is a common material for jewelry chances are that you know whether you are allergic to it or not.

The other problem associated with some types of silver jewelry is nickel allergy. Some silver alloys contain a certain nickel content so this type of jewelry can sometimes cause an allergy. This is why you should know if you are allergic to nickel (and how your body reacts to it).

Other than this problem, jewelry made of silver, particularly Sterling Silver, is very beautiful and safe to use. However, before you purchase a silver jewelry, make sure that you are not allergic to silver or nickel.

One more thing you can do is to use combined jewelry made of silver and another body safe material such as surgical steel or titanium. This type of jewelry will have parts that go inside your body made of surgical steel, titanium or gold, while the silver part will be the one that’s not touching your skin directly. This is a good, safe choice for those who want to wear silver body jewelry.

Final word of warning: silver is not suitable for new piercings (or damaged piercings) because blood and other bodily fluids will make it oxidize. This will not only turn the jewelry black but it will also release silver salts, which can cause allergies or discoloration of the skin around the piercing.

How to Open a Captive Bead Ring

14K Gold - Captive Bead Rings

14K Gold – Captive Bead Rings

Captive Bead Rings (CBR) are among the most popular body jewelry types. They can be used for many different types of piercings and they come in many different sizes. The main design is simple but effective: these rings have a ball made to close the ring and turn it into a full circle.

Types of Captive Bead Rings

There are different types of captive bead rings, depending on the method used to keep the ball in place. There are two common types of captive bead rings: snap fit style and tension style rings. Understanding the main difference between them will make it easier for you to understand how to open them.

  •  Snap Fit Style Rings: they have a completely smooth ball. The body of the ring goes inside the ball. The dimple used to keep the ball in place is located inside of the ball.
  • Tension Style Rings: they have a ball held in place by the tension of the ring. The ball has dimples and the ends of the captive ring fit into them.

Both these styles are made to keep the ball firmly in place so the ring won’t open during use. Tension captive bead rings tend to be more common and somewhat easier to open.

Opening Captive Bead Rings Manually

Happy - Captive Bead Ring

Happy – Captive Bead Ring

Many captive bead rings operate using a simple mechanism to open and close them. You can snap them to remove the bead and then place the bead back and close the ring when you want to close it. This mechanism can often be done manually and without much problem.

You can usually remove the ball by simply holding the ring in one hand and pulling the bead out with the other. To open it, you will also need to twist the ring slightly. To twist the ring, turn your right hand clockwise and your left hand counter clockwise. It does require a bit of practice but it’s usually easy to do.

However, it’s not uncommon for captive bead rings, especially at larger gauges, to be difficult to open. This is when you need to use special tools to open them.

Opening the Ring with Opening Pliers

To open a captive bead ring, you will need a quality ring opening pliers, specially made for this jewelry type.

To open a captive bead ring, slide the ring over the tips of the plier. Make sure that the ring rests on the grooves. Open the pliers gently, until you feel them touch the sides of the ring. Slowly but firmly, force the ring outwards until the ball falls out. This will open the ring so you can handle it (insert it or remove it from your piercing).

Tips

  • When using ring opening pliers, make sure not to squeeze too hard or you will deform the ring.
  • For large gauges, use special pliers made for these gauges.
  • Before handling your body jewelry, make sure to wash your hands and use clean, sanitized tools.
  • In case you have opened the ring too far or if you are changing the ball size, you will need to use ring closing pliers.
  • If you are unsure how to open and close your captive bead ring, practice before you insert it into your piercing.
