Navel Bars

Picking Out Navel Bars
It is important to choose the right size and material for your piercing jewellery as your body may react differently to different materials. Getting the size of the piercing bar right is important for the health of your piercing. Your piercer may use a longer bar during the initial healing of your belly button piercing to allow for swelling. This can be changed in-store by a piercer for a shorter bar once the swelling has reduced.
  • Size: Navel Bars are measured by the length and gauge of the bar. The first number is the gauge (displayed in mm) and the second is the length e.g. 1.6 x 10mm. 
  • Threading: An internally threaded bar means that the screw is on the end of the removable ball. An externally threaded bar means that the screw is on the bar. 
  • Material: Choosing a high quality material such as titanium will provide you with a hypoallergenic material that is perfect for everyday use. Surgical steel is also a good choice for healed navel piercings as it is durable. If you have a metal allergy then acrylic navel bars are available. 
Inserting/Removing Navel Bars
If your piercer has advised you to swap to a shorter bar after healing for a few weeks, it is best to return to the store to have your piercing changed. This must be done delicately so as not to damage or re-open the piercing wound. Once your piercing has fully healed, you will be able to change your navel bar yourself. If you are still unsure about how to change your jewellery you can always visit one of our piercers for help.

Before handling your piercing, always make sure to wash your hands with antibacterial soap. 

To remove your navel bar simply unscrew the ball on the end of the bar. If you find that your belly bar is difficult to unscrew then you can either visit one of our piercers for assistance or use a pair of jewellery pliers to help remove your jewellery. Only use pliers if they are proper piercing pliers and have been sterilised thoroughly.

Gently insert your new piece of jewellery ensuring that is has been sterilised first and tightly screw in the ball.
Where can you use navel bars?
Navel Bars are suitable for use in navel piercings only. This specially designed piercing jewellery is styled to adorn your belly button with gems and other designs. Generally, belly bars are either designed as a bar with an add on ball that features a decoration such as a gem or a dangling element that hangs from the end of the add on ball. Your personal preference and lifestyle are likely to influence which belly bars work best for everyday wear.
