   at home, you will need tongs or tweezers piercing, earring (preferably curved barbell and not ring) made of surgical steel and other secure material for the piercing needle, rubber gloves, marker, alcohol and cotton balls.

  • Step 1: Wipe with alcohol all the tools that you will use for piercings and put them on clean surface with alcohol. Wash your hands with soap and water and put on new rubber gloves.
  • Step 2. Carefully wipe the skin with alcohol around the navel.
  • Step 3: Grab the tongs of the skin in which you want to make a puncture - usually a small skin folds above or below the navel. Compare the thickness of the skin, clutched in forceps, with the length of the bar - the bar should be slightly longer than that ornament does not cause discomfort.
  • Step 4. Marker put an end to that place where there should be puncture - the upper and lower side of the skin fold. Make sure that the lowest point was right top. Sometimes it is necessary to point to draw and erase a few times before you get to arrange them as necessary; marker with skin easily erased with alcohol.
  • Step 5. Once you finally determine where it will pierce the skin, grab a needle piercing and place it under the skin with forceps clamped so that the tip was sent to the point that you previously put on the skin (some experts recommend pre- lubricate the needle with Vaseline). Then quickly pierce the skin movement from the bottom up. If done correctly, the needle will appear exactly at the top of the drawn point.
  • Step 6. Insert the decoration for the end of the navel where there is thread through the hole in the bottom of the needle. If you correctly choose the size of the needle and decorations (usually use the size 14ga), this should not be any problems.

   at home - perhaps along with drawing points right one over the other. Insert the first ornament for stomach independently and safely is extremely difficult, but it was too late to retreat - in any case, will have to bring the case to the end.
  • Step 8. Wipe the punctured skin with alcohol (it's too painful, but necessary), and screw the cap earrings.
  • Step 9. Prepare to take care of the pierced navel for at least six months (navel piercing heals longer than most other types of piercings).


Why navel piercing at home should not do it

  • Increased risk of rejection jewelry. The fact that the people decides to do the piercing on their own, often choose jewelry from substandard materials that the body rejects. This may cause severe irritation and even to the formation of large scars.
  • Increased risk of infection due to non-sterile equipment. You can assume that took care of everything, but yet you - not a professional piercer, and do not know all the nuances of the procedure. In addition, tools for piercing parlors are disinfected in an autoclave, and you have a home there is hardly such a device.
  • No matter how you try to put the points on the line one above the other, and even insert the needle into the skin, there is still a possibility that a puncture will be uneven. Fix the hole is only one way: to give him a completely overgrown, and only then to pierce the skin again.
  • Finally, there is a slight risk of damage to the nerve fibers - it is quite difficult to do, but it is too strong and wrong move can lead to unpredictable consequences.

Think properly before doing your own navel piercing. In your town probably has quite a few good piercing salons, where you can get quality service for relatively little money. Remember that when it comes to body piercing, typically "want to do something good - do it yourself" is not working. But if you do decide to pierce the stomach yourself, prepare in advance all the necessary focus and make every effort to make a great piercing.

Possible complications

Any shift of earrings in the navel, which happens to wound healing can lead to getting into the puncture channel infections and inflammatory processes. Also adversely affect the piercing friction and squeezing it tight clothing (eg belt skirt or trousers).

Inflammation can also occur after swimming, touching the puncture site with contaminated hands if damage or improper care of the puncture site. If the wound does not heal or starts to fester, it is necessary to consult a doctor. He will find out the cause of the inflammation and give recommendations for further treatment. For example, it can be compresses or antiseptic (antimicrobial) ointment (levomekol, tetracycline).

Articles made of teflon and teflon are the most hypoallergenic. When used as the first jewelry after a puncture wound does not blush and abscesses. Earrings made from these materials are soft and elastic, and over time their properties are not changed.

Jewellery, manufactured from silver by many experts is not recommended, even after the healing process is ended. Therefore, if the earring out of the metal caused irritation, it is necessary to find an alternative to silver.

Products made of gold - one of the safest. But it is not necessary to save and purchase of low-grade metal earrings, because they have a lot of impurities.
