Outie Belly Button Piercing

What is outie belly button piercing

It is the piercing of the outie belly button popularly done by those having a convex navel since birth due to some extra scar tissue. Contrary to innie belly button piercing where the piercing is done just above the navel plug, outie belly button piercing suits only a particular anatomy. It is an unusual way of showcasing gorgeous belly jewelry stuck directly on the navel or just hanging below it.

Outie belly button piercing procedure

Do not try to perform the piercing on your own at home as it could lead to severe health consequences. Search for a reputable piercing parlor having a hygienic ambiance. Before the procedure, the outie navel is cleaned with a disinfectant and the professional piercer marks the entry and exit points. The outie belly button is clamped, and a hollow, sterilized needle is passed through it. The jewelry is immediately inserted to finish the piercing.

Outie belly button piercing pain

Since a thick mass of tissue is pierced, it may hurt during the procedure. Having a rich supply of blood vessels makes it prone to bleeding when pierced. Therefore, you need a highly trained piercing artist to carry out the complex piercing. The punctured outie navel may become numb and swell for few days as expected in any other type of body piercing.

  • Clean the piercing site with a sterilized cotton ball dipped in warm saline water twice a day
  • Use an antibacterial soap to rinse the piercing gently while taking bath
  • Wear loose pants and short tops to prevent the jewelry from clinging on to the clothes and causing injury
  • Avoid sleeping on the pierced outie navel

Outie belly button piercing infection and complications

You should see to it that the pierced outie belly button does not get infected. Get in touch with a physician if the area becomes red and discharges yellow pus along with severe swelling. If you suspect a jewelry migration, then visit the piercing salon and get it removed to avoid rejection.
