Floating Navel Piercing

Floating Navel Piercing is a type of body piercing that involves the placement of a ball on the underside of your navel. It is designed to be an attractive and attractive alternative to more traditional piercings.

The process for a floating-navel piercing is as follows:

You first undergo an examination by a piercer to ensure you are healthy enough to withstand the pain involved.

A Navel-Lip ring is placed on the skin surrounding your navel, and this is then attached to an anchor (a small body jewelry) in order to keep it in place.

You are now ready for your piercing. The piercing itself may take between ten minutes and two hours, depending on how close the anchor is placed to the epidermis — basically, it’s all about placement.

The ideal spot for a floating-navel piercing depends on your desire for aesthetics as much as on any other factors. In general, though, it should be located where you would have put any other piercing, ideally within half an inch of the surface of your skin. The closer you can get to the surface of your skin, the better it will look — just make sure not to make it too close or else you’ll risk damaging the skin around it.

One of the most popular of all piercings, a navel piercing is a great way to express yourself. The piercing itself is relatively simple to complete, and if you’re not in a rush, you can add some extra flair with a diamond stud or other jewelry. It’s not for everyone, so it can be a good idea to check with your doctor before getting one — it might be too painless for you.

The piercing is more than just a body modification, though. It’s also a statement about yourself: “I am unique.” Or maybe you have an intense love of jellyfish. Even if you get more traditional body jewelry as well, like barbells and lip rings, there are still plenty of things to make your new tattoo really stand out.

In the context of body piercing, a “floating” navel piercing is one in which the bottom ball or bead of the jewelry is not secured in place. The result is that when you move around, it “floats” along with your movements.

Yes, they do reject. Every piercing has a chance of rejection, but when it comes to floating piercings, the chances are even more.

The reason is that a floating navel piercing is placed above the surface of the skin (in space). With most other piercings, the jewelry is placed under the skin and does not have direct contact with the outside air. This means that foreign particles or germs have less opportunity to attach to it and initiate an immune response.

There are also several other factors that make a floating piercing more prone to rejection:

1) It is usually pierced vertically and not horizontally along the natural body contours. The body perceives this as an attack and tries to fight it off by rejecting it.

2) The jewelry used in this kind of piercing is usually light weight and very small in diameter (see Why? below). This makes it move easily when bumped or pulled on, which increases its chances of getting rejected.

3) The jewelry used in a floating piercing is very visible from all sides and angles, thus making it more vulnerable to outside irritants like dirt or bacteria.
