Body piercing has become increasingly popular as a form of self-expression and body adornment in recent years. One of the most common types of piercings is the navel piercing, which adds a touch of glamour and individuality to one's appearance. However, it's important to recognize that not every navel anatomy is suitable for piercing. As a professional piercer with years of experience, I want to share my insights on this topic and shed light on why it's crucial to consult a professional piercer.
Let's delve into the fascinating world of navel anatomy! Each person's navel is as unique as a fingerprint, with its own shape, depth, and orientation. As a master piercer, I've come across countless variations of navels, and it never ceases to amaze me. The delicate balance of curves, angles, and skin is what makes each navel distinct. However, when it comes to piercing, these anatomical variations become essential considerations.
Navel Shape and Depth
When you think of a navel, you might envision the classic "innie" – that cute little concave indentation on the abdomen. Innies are generally the easiest and most suitable for piercing. The natural curve provides a stable base for the jewelry, allowing for a secure and comfortable fit. However, there are also "outies" out there, where the navel protrudes outward. As a piercer, I love a good challenge, but outies can be trickier to pierce due to the lack of a stable base.
Imagine a compass pointing north, south, east, and west. Now picture your navel in relation to that compass. Ideally, the navel should be horizontally oriented, with the top and bottom holes aligned parallel to the ground. This horizontal orientation provides better stability for the jewelry and reduces the risk of complications. However, some navels have a rebellious nature, sporting a vertical or diagonal orientation. Piercing these navels requires special attention and expertise to ensure a successful outcome.
Tissue Thickness and Quality
Navels, like people, come in different shapes and sizes, and that includes the thickness and quality of the surrounding tissue. Thin or delicate tissue may not be able to support the weight of the jewelry, leading to migration or rejection. As a seasoned piercer, I've learned to read the signs and assess the tissue's strength and resilience. Sometimes, factors like scar tissue, stretch marks, or pre-existing conditions can impact the suitability of a navel piercing. That's why a professional consultation is crucial.
