This piercing is one of the most common and popular body piercings today. Popular culture has played a large role in the promotion of this piercing.
The actual navel is not pierced when a navel piercing is performed. The most common form of navel piercing is through the upper rim of the navel. A true navel piercing requires the person being pierced to have an “outie” navel to some degree, and is extremely rare.
Healing can take up to 4 months to a year.
