For example, belly dancers often used the belly button ring as a symbol of respect for their tradition. So it is okay with a belly piercing but you have to be very careful about the choice of your belly button rings.

 Are you sure can you choose the best belly button for your sensitive skin? 

If you are confused about the choice of the best type of belly button ring for sensitive skin then I have some important and useful tips for you, Using which you can wear the best type of belly button rings.

Gold Belly Button Rings

gold plated belly button rings

Gold has been a very common and skin-friendly metal for jewelry purposes for centuries. But you should be very careful about the type of gold you choose for your jewelry. The good types of gold jewelry are 14k, 18k, and 24k out of which 24k is the purest and solid gold and so is beneficial for your skin.

Also, make sure that it has no nickel content in it because nickel is the top irritant metal the most skins are allergic with. One way that you can ensure the quality is to go to the authorized jewelry studios to avoid fake gold belly rings getting used.

Another very important thing is to make sure not to use gold plated rings. Instead, go for the solid at least 14k gold rings. Because gold plated rings are not long-lasting and a layer of gold plating goes away with time. Once the thin gold plating fades away, your skin comes in contact with the cheap metals that were hiding behind the gold plating and causes health complications.

So this is genuinely the only drawback for the gold that it is more expensive than other metals and due to which people may carry off gold plated rings instead of solid gold rings. If you cannot afford solid gold, below are a couple of more skin-friendly metals that you can try as well rather than going for gold plated rings.

implant grade titanium belly button rings

Whenever you get a new piercing, you should choose a metal that does not react. At this time, Titanium is the best choice because it is hypoallergenic. Titanium is the most inert metal plus it is very lightweight and comfortable. Titanium is a very durable and long-lasting metal as well. These are the reasons that this metal is used for medical implants.

One great benefit of titanium is that it is resistant to corrosion in chlorine water as well as seawater. So you can swim and take bath without getting your titanium jewelry rusted or damaged. Moisture is the biggest enemy of the life span of any jewelry, but in the case of titanium, this thing is also not to worry about.

The reason why people switch gold with titanium is clear that it is affordable as compared to solid gold and also can be heat-treated to produce more different colors. Either by anodizing or heat-treating, you can get purple, pink, blue, or green colors of titanium and that does not even make titanium reactive.

The only disadvantage, in this case, could be that these colors are not long-lasting and will go away with time. Then again you will get the silver-grey color which is the natural color of this metal. But this is not that big of a deal and the many advantages of this metal make it a very happily chosen metal for all sorts of jewelry.

This metal is inexpensive and durable as compared to solid gold. Surgical stainless steel is widely chosen for the navel ring because it is less likely to react with your skin and the navel piercing is the most sensitive piercing of all.

This metal is not lightweight and heavier than other metals like gold and titanium but still a great choice as an nonreactive metal for jewelry especially navel rings.

Choosing the Right belly button ring for sensitive skin

Belly button rings are in a wide variety of styles and you have a diverse choice ranging from simple bent barbells to gem-studded dangly belly rings. With so many options available, how do you choose the right belly button ring for you?

Well! no need to panic. We made it easier for you. You just want to consider some of these qualities your belly button ring should have. Here are some of the things to list down and here I also have some informative video for you as well check it out.

How do you know that you want surgical stainless steel, titanium, BioFlex, sterling silver, or gold belly button ring? Here are a couple of reasons: If you have sensitive skin, you must choose steel, titanium, or a BioFlex belly ring, of which titanium is the best option to choose.

Titanium is the most inert metal, so it’s least likely to stimulate an allergic reaction. BioFlex is also a hypoallergenic material and is additionally flexible which is a plus advantage. When you bend at the waist, it folds accordingly and feels pretty comfortable.

So regarding these qualities, BioFlex is a great choice for sportspersons and pregnant women. You may not be able to wear a belly ring if you play sports, especially contact sports, but if you want not to lose your belly piercing, you may want to wear a BioFlex belly ring which will help you a lot to make you feel comfortable.

If you have sensitive skin but don’t play sports, it’s worth giving a silver belly ring or gold navel ring a try. It will give you a more leveled-up look.

Pick Your Favorite Belly Ring Style

belly button ring styles

When it comes to the belly button ring style, there is a lot to choose from. But don’t make things complicated and choose smart. You may have three very basic choices that are described below:

  • Do you want a standard belly ring, with a charm that hangs over your belly button, that flatters occasionally and catches everyone’s eye towards you?
  • Or do you like to wear a reverse belly button ring that has the charm at the top? The charm or the decoration of this belly button ring is pretty fixed and also fun and easy to wear.
  • Or would you rather carry off an actual ring, a seamless ring, a captive ring, a horseshoe barbell, or another style hoop? This is also one of the most common and great choices for belly jewelry. You can choose whatever style you prefer from these three styles.

Top-down / Reverse belly button ring

reverse belly button ring

If you want a standard and common belly button ring but also a trending one and not even less fancy for your belly piercing; you should try a top-down reverse belly button ring, which has a larger bottom ball and a charm that sits over or inside your belly button. A top-reverse belly ring is inserted through the top of your navel piercing instead of the bottom of it.

Top-reverse belly button rings typically feature a charm or any other jewel that dangle over or directly above the navel cavity. The top-down reverse belly button ring is an elegant choice and the fancier style to enhance your beauty and attraction as well.

Circular barbell belly button rings

You can also try a hoop, like a circular barbell or captive bead belly ring. Circular barbell belly button rings are great for both single and double navel piercings. These Circular barbells exude a high class in versatile belly piercing designs. The circular barbell, as the name defines, only contains a curved barbell that goes through the belly piercing and no charm or jewel is attached.

It enhances your attraction at a great level and proves that sometimes, less is more. If you don’t want to make things get over complicated, just go with the circular barbell because they are the simplest and easiest to choose from a diversity of choices.

Navel belly button rings

You may also like to carry off a belly ring with a navel shield, which either surrounds or covers your belly button. Navel shield belly rings are available in standard as well as top-down styles, and with or without dangles as well. Navel shields are the belly rings with extra bling. Plus they are offered in a huge variety of styles to match everyone’s personality. They are never out of style because of their categories and varieties. Rather than a lot of charms or jewels, navel shields with top-down or standard dangle have taken over, making you more fragile and confident.

Always First Decide What Belly Ring Accents You Really Want

types of belly button rings

As there are a lot of belly button ring styles to choose from, you can also make a change in your belly button ring accent as well that will give you a lot more options than before you already have. So you can now choose different accents of belly button rings or bars along with different styles.

Do you wanna wear a dangly belly button ring, available with a fixed charm or bezel-set gem? Or you want dangly belly button barbells that are also available as a simple bent barbell with no decorative accents attached to them at all? Then you may essentially have two varieties to choose from:

Curved barbell belly button ring

curved barbell belly button ring

The first one is a bent barbell with bezel-set gems on one side or both sides. It may also include a Fixed charm navel ring or a bejeweled dangle belly button ring. Here you have two very beautiful choices. The first choice is a hoop with dice attached to it instead of balls if you want a horseshoe belly button barbell.

The second choice is a hoop with an opal ball attached to it instead of a captive bead or jewel if you want a captive ring. Both are very charming and precious choices to increase your attraction and beauty.

Dangle belly button rings

dangle belly button rings

If you want a gem-studded belly ring, do you want it as a dangling ring or not? You might like to choose a bejeweled dangle belly button ring. For example Crystal Explosion Heart belly ring, one with an immobile charm firmly attached to the shaft.

The majority of the navel belly rings are also available with the fixed charms or other decorations. These are the pretty fancier choices to wear on special occasions. So keep your jewelry in good shape by not wearing it casually and preserve it for special occasions. They give you an expensive look that everybody adores.

Belly Button Piercing Allergy

We all have been hearing some sort of horrifying stories about some of the jewelry shops around the market that keep misleading their customers about their cheap content products. This is so unfortunate that for the sake of making some money, they always cheat on us and the worse thing is that the customer is always the one who becomes the victim in both of the scenarios, both in wasting money on the jewelry they cannot even wear and also to suffer other allergic reactions that are time taking to heal properly. So both the wastage of money as well as time is a big loss.

We know that it is not pleasant at all to have an allergy and experiencing this problem might be so unattractive. We have published this article so that you all can be informed and acknowledge metal allergies accurately and find appropriate belly button rings for your skin type.

Do you have a metal allergy?

If the belly piercing leads to the development of an itchy, inflamed rash around the piercing, you may have a nickel allergy. Your pierced hole may look larger than before. Tenderness and rashes may come and go. Metal allergies are so common nowadays, and these allergic reactions are largely due to the usage of nickel in daily life products. If your belly button ring contains cheap material like nickel, it may also cause an allergic reaction on your belly that is very irritating, time taking to heal and a very unpleasant and unattractive experience.

The symptom,s of Metal allergy include: rashes, itching, swelling, and redness of belly button that may spread to a larger area, dry patches, tenderness that may appear and disappear, inflammation of pierced belly button hole, appearing of bumps on the skin, or any change in the skin color, etc are the common symptoms that should not be neglect and needs quick medical checkup and treatment.

Diagnosis

A doctor can usually diagnose an infection of the belly button by looking at the piercing hole. If you suspect any of the above reactions, it is very important to see a doctor immediately. Doctors can determine whether it is an allergy or an infection. Both of which required appropriate care and consideration for you to heal your belly button piercing timely. It can be treated very easily. But if you have a nickel allergy, you must avoid wearing nickel on your belly piercing or even near it. Because the allergy can automatically burst up again within days, possibly within hours.

In some cases, you may also like to visit a dermatologist who can also perform some skin patch tests to confirm the type of metals your skin is allergic to and also to measure the level of your skin sensitivity. If you are once exposed to a nickel allergy, it will, unfortunately, remain with you for a lifetime. So you better avoid nickel jewelry in such a case for you to obtain a healthy and happy belly piercing.

Take Caution When Buying Surgical Steel Belly Button Rings

Surgical stainless steel is a very suitable material for the skin with nickel allergies. Caution: Be aware that the most belly button fancy rings available in the market are made up of non-surgical grade materials. This means that the shaft made out of surgical stainless steel is safe to carry off but the charms or the other decorations attached to it are not safe at all and you may begin to suffer from an allergic reaction again very shortly after wearing these belly button rings.

If surgical stainless steel is your chosen material or recommended by the dermatologist, you must make sure to stick with basic surgical steel belly button rings instead of costume fashion or fancy jewelry. You should prefer your health over fashion. To avoid any unpleasant experience, it is worth it to avoid all types of jewelry made up of cheap materials like nickel.

Want something fancier without the allergy?

If you want something trendy and fancier without the problem of allergy, you can choose 14k, 18k, or 24k solid yellow gold or the rose gold belly rings. However, you should avoid gold plated belly button rings, as the thin plating of gold will peel off with time and it will once again expose your skin to the metal it is allergic to. You should also avoid white gold because it contains more nickel material as compared to yellow or rose gold and can create a problem for allergic skins.

Pure sterling silver is also a safe choice for the belly ring with allergic skin. This is of course a cheaper option than pure solid gold belly rings. Platinum and solid titanium are the best choices as well, titanium is the most inert metal, so it is less likely to stimulate an allergic reaction to your skin. To some, all acrylic belly rings are suitable for allergic skin, but the unfortunate thing is that these rings have a shorter lifespan than other products described above.
