The initial piece should be basic and non-dangle. Almost universally, it will be pierced with a 14g (1.6mm) needle. 12g (1.8mm) or 16g (1.2mm) are used by certain piercers as well. The first jewellery needs to be large enough to accommodate swelling, which is why 14mm or 12mm belly bars should be used. These can be changed to other belly bar jewellery after the initial swelling goes down. Navel bars with diamonds, gemstones, or dangling attachments make it look appealing.

The most essential jewellery for the navel are basic navel bars with balls or cones. Both can be located through, in, or around the navel. Some of the most commonly found navel jewellery today are wholesale belly bars made of gold, titanium, or surgical steel. The easy concealment, even during the healing process, has contributed to the widespread adoption of it. As a result there is an increasing demand UK wide.

Belly bar jewellery, short belly bars or navel bars are similar to ear cartilage piercings when it comes to the healing process. They heal quickly and with very little irritations compared to other body jewellery. The healing usually takes around 9-12 months. These are one of the few that do not normally reject. The actual navel can only be pierced if it is an innie. For outies, the skin surrounding the navel is pierced at one or more locations. The most common form of navel jewellery is made of 316L surgical steel,G23 titanium, gold, and BioFlex and is placed through the upper rim of the navel.

A Wide Choice of Premium Wholesale Belly Bars in Different Styles

Our online shop offers various designs, materials, sizes, and styles. When it comes to choosing the right materials the main concern is that it has to be hypoallergenic, especially for the initial one. This helps with the healing process and prevents complications due to irritation and skin sensitivity. Hence, the most common types of materials for bulk belly bars are either 316L surgical steel or G23 titanium. Both materials are available in solid or anodised versions. These materials for navel bars are biocompatible and implant grade. The anodised versions of navel piercing jewellery provide the wearer with a range of colourful options which are all available in bulk. We also supply BioFlex, which is a bendable plastic which is ideal for various reasons. It is not only comfortable to wear but the length can also be cut down to size for added flexibility. This makes the material very attractive for active wearers or pregnant women. 14 Karat is also a great choice as it is lauded for its durability, and value.

Selection of wholesale belly bars

The standard sizes are 14G (1.6mm) and 8mm to 14mm in length. This jewellery size is ideal to prevent migration and rejection of the navel piercing. The typical length is usually 10mm and accommodates for any swelling, drainage, and to promote healing. Every professional piercer may recommend a different size so the jewellery can sometimes vary and start from 6mm. Once the belly bar piercing has fully healed, they can be changed to another length if desired.

In terms of styles of wholesale belly bars which include navel bars made of 316L surgical steel or G23 titanium, there are endless designs available. The most common versions however are simple curved belly button jewellery pieces with a smaller upper jewellery ball and a larger lower belly ball. These attachments can be solid shapes or shapes with crystals. Navel bars with Ferido-glued crystals are also sold and are available in a vast array of colours. Bulk belly bars or navel bars sometimes have a dangling design on the lower ball to add something extra to the design. A much sought after version of this kind of wholesale belly bars are with silver danglings. These danglings can be found in a variety of designs such as hearts, fairies, cherries, crosses, dragons, bats, ribbons, dolphins, flowers, and many other unique shapes, making it stand out.

Once the healing of the navel piercing is complete, other choices of belly bar jewellery such as captive bead rings, horseshoes, and even rings can be used. For new belly button piercings, it is recommended to choose simple navel bars as these are less likely to catch on clothing, whilst reducing irritation and helping in the healing process.

The Anatomy of the Navel

navel jewellery

The navel includes the umbilical cord remnant of the umbilical tip, which is the often protruding scar left by the detachment of the umbilical cord. The umbilical collar, which is formed by the dense fibrous umbilical ring, is around the cord-remnant. The periumbilical skin, which is called the umbilical lip, surrounds the umbilical collar. The more substantial this lip or flap of skin is, the easier it will be to pierce and use the belly bar jewellery. The overall healing process is better since it needs space below and behind the flap to reduce irritation. If a customer does not have a solid lip of skin on the top of their navel to insert the navel piercing jewellery, sometimes the lower lip of the navel is pierced instead, although this is less common.

Outie navels look like little knots that are sticking out and these are harder to get pierced. This is because it involves the inner anatomy of the navel, which could potentially lead to infections of outies. These infections can travel to the internal organs and become dangerous. Most professional piercers will not take the risk of performing belly button bars piercing for outies.

How Important Is the Anatomy of the Navel?

navel piercing procedure

The professional piercer using wholesale belly bars will first assess the navel to decide if it is suitable for belly bar jewellery or navel bars. Because the navel will vary with different people, there are some instances which may not be suitable to be pierced with belly bar jewellery. The process usually happens on a hydraulic chair which is reclined so that the client is lying in a comfortable position. The professional piercer will then thoroughly clean and sterilise the area as well as the equipment that will be used. Any body hair around the navel is usually removed with a new disposable razor. Gloves and single-use or disposable needles are used for hygiene. Piercing guns are not recommended and especially not for belly button bars.

The anatomy of the navel will dictate the placement of the piercing and the professional piercer will mark the adequate placement with a surgical marker. This placement should be checked to see if the belly button bars, such as gold belly button bars or titanium belly button bars, alignments are correct and that the client is satisfied with the position before proceeding. The needle is then pierced through the previously marked spots quickly and confidently and then the sterilised belly bar jewellery. There may be a little bleeding and so the area should be cleaned. The proper aftercare steps should always be explained to the client to reduce the risk of infection and rejection. Belly button bars require strict care and attention and it is important for customers to understand the commitment involved.

Navel piercings hurt less than other types since the skin around the navel is quite fleshy. It is considered the second least painful after ear piercings. However, as placing belly button jewellery requires a puncture hole, there will be some little pain involved. The pain for belly bar piercings is no different from getting an injection, the process is quick and pain is brief. In the days following, there could be some discomfort, including swelling, throbbing, and aching belly button bars. This is normal but if the pain becomes too much to bear, a medical professional should be consulted. The material used for the navel jewellery can also have an effect on this, so it is recommended to help the customer choose what suits best. This includes 14K or higher real gold belly bars, G23 titanium, and 316L surgical steel belly bars.

The Different Variations of Navel Piercings

The navel can be pierced using wholesale belly bars in a few different ways.

belly button jewellery 1

Upper and lower navel piercings are the most traditional types. These versions are suitable for customers who prefer a basic style. It can be done with all types of belly button bars.

belly button jewellery 2

Multiple piercings allow for variety, consisting of an additional belly bar jewellery either above, below, or to the side of the initial piercing.

belly button jewellery 3

Vertical double piercings are the most requested multiple navel piercing variety. The vertical double piercing consists of two piercings above each other.

Other variations include curved barbell, outie, deep navel, horizontal, double horizontal, multi navel, and stretched navel piercings. Standard rings or bars can be used as well as belly button piercing jewellery with dangling ornaments.

The Aftercare Process

It requires commitment and care as they heal slower than many other body parts. A vigilant aftercare routine is necessary to ensure the piercing’s health in the long run. Initial itchiness and localised tenderness around the belly button bars are perfectly normal. If the wearer experiences discomfort or tightness around the jewellery after the first period, they can remove the wholesale belly bars either in the studio or on their own and replace this belly bar jewellery with a BioFlex retainer. This will keep the fistula open. Bioflex is the perfect material for belly button bars retainers as it does not put extra pressure on the skin. If the hole is left empty, it may cause the hole to close. If there are signs of infection the wearer should seek medical treatment right away.

navel piercing aftercare

It can take anywhere from nine months to a year for it to fully heal because of the constant movement of belly button jewellery associated with the location. Essential to the healing process is keeping the area and as bacteria-free as possible. The professional piercer must advise the wearer to avoid swimming as the wound can come into contact with bacteria in the water. Tight garments can irritate the area and trap bacteria in the belly bar jewellery, so opt for clean, loose-fitting clothing as well as to protect the area using a protective bandage when exercising, and cleaning up the area and jewellery afterward to avoid irritation or infection. Avoiding the sun should prevent sunburns that can hamper healing. The navel takes some time to heal but in a matter of weeks, it may look like it is healed already but it takes much longer to heal internally. Therefore, the initial navel piercing jewellery used should not be changed for other body jewellery during the full healing period. G23 titanium, BioFlex, surgical steel belly bars, or real gold belly bars can be used later.

  • It is common to have an off-white fluid of plasma coming out of the area and around the belly bar jewellery in the first few days after the piercing. 
  • This fluid of plasma can form a crusty substance thus the wearer should be told to clean the area with warm water and not to pick at the crust, as it can cause further irritation or bleeding. 
  • The wearer of belly button bars should be advised to clean the site and belly bar jewellery with water, a small amount of vegetable glycerine soap, or a sterile saline. When choosing a sterile saline, the area and the jewel should be soaked for a couple of minutes and dried carefully afterwards. Excessive cleaning of the belly bar jewellery can cause skin irritation and dry out the area.
