Julia picked out this perfect gold septum ring from Body Vision Los Angeles

We love everything about how this looks on her face. The interplay of her skin tones with the color of the jewelry; the delicate, but noticeable gemstones; how well the shape of a full ring works with the shape of her face. Everything about this piece just works.

A gold septum ring may not be for everyone, but in this case, she couldn’t have made a better choice!

We stock a large selection of sizes, styles and colors for septum jewelry. While we do love gold septum rings, we also carry jewelry in stainless steel, titanium and niobium.

Navel Piercing Healing Problems–The Wrong Jewelry

I got my belly button pierced a few years ago and it rejected. the scar is healed and everything and my bestie and I want to get them done. I don’t think the people before did it right because they put in a bull ring and when I went to get a new ring from another place the look on there face was shocked when they saw the ring because my piercing was so red. I’m scared that it will either reject again or they won’t be able to do it again. How do I know if the scar tissue is bad or not?

Questions about navel piercing healing problems are far too common. There is no way for us to cover all aspects of this topic. However, we wanted to share our answer to this question with a wider audience. We hope that educating more people will prevent others from having similar experiences.

Circular barbells lead to a lot of navel piercing healing problems

The piercer chose the wrong style of jewelry for a fresh navel piercing.  Circular barbells (a.k.a., bull rings or horseshoe barbells) are one of the worst choices for jewelry in a fresh navel piercing. They are pretty much a guarantee that you will experience navel piercing healing problems.

This style of jewelry sticks away from the body quite a bit. That means the jewelry will move around a lot more during the most basic daily activities, not to mention exercise or other rigorous activities. In addition, it will get rubbed/pressed on by clothing and is more likely to get snagged. All of those things will result in a lot of irritation to the piercing. The more irritation, the harder it is for your body to heal the piercing.

Circular barbells are not good to use in a new navel piercing

This style of jewelry is also open in the middle. This allows more things to slip between the beads and catch on the inside of the jewelry, causing additional irritation that will make the piercing ake longer to heal and be more likely to reject.

Curved barbells are the best style of jewelry to prevent navel piercing healing problems.

The best style of jewelry to be used in a navel piecing is a curved barbell. This type of jewelry sits much more flush with the body. It is less likely to get caught/snagged on things and it moves around a lot less.

We all know from experience that any wound you get (say, a scratch on your arm), heals easier, faster and with fewer complications if you leave it alone. In other words, the less irritation that happens, the faster it heals. The same thing is true for any healing piercing, The less irritation and movement that happens, the easier it is for your body to heal.

Can I get my navel pierced again?

It’s usually not a problem to re-pierce a navel piercing that has rejected or that was removed for some other reason. The amount of scar tissue is a consideration. You will have to rely on the experience of a piercer you trust to decide whether re-piecing is a good option for you.

As for it rejecting again, that is always a possibility. However, in this situation, the choice of  jewelry probably played a very big role in why it rejected. A properly-placed, properly-fitted piece of high-quality jewelry will go a long way to reducing the likelihood of rejection.

If you are looking for a piercer in your area, a good place to start is the web site for the Association of Professional Piercers. The APP doesn’t endorse the piercing abilities of any piercer, but membership does indicate that the piercer is following at least a minimum set of health and safety standards.

We’re pretty sure our wonderful client Alan has the best collection of labret jewelry in the Twin Cities after he picked up these five gorgeous pieces from BVLA.

Left-to-Right
* Rose gold double round Harlequin with genuine citrine
* Rose gold Toltec with Rhodalite and a pink CZ center
* Yellow gold Sol Flower with a Tsavorite center
* Rose gold Crown with a black pearl
* Yellow gold Nanda with a genuine garnet

Nicely done, Alan. Nicely done.

We love it when clients approach their body jewelry as a collection and they treat it like the fine jewelry that is. High quality body jewelry, whether it’s made from stainless steel, titanium or gold, can last a lifetime and we think it should be treated with no less respect than jewelry worn on a finger wrist or neck.

Some Things Are Just Meant to Be

Sometimes a certain piece of jewelry comes together in a certain piecing on a certain person’s face and it’s hard to imagine that person without that piercing and jewelry. We very much think that applies to this client and the amazing chrysoprase gem, set in a Crown setting, she selected for the philtrum piercing Dan Steinbacher did on her.

We have long loved the Crown from Body Vision Los Angeles for the very fact that it is so versatile and so damn striking.

Gone are the days when septum piercing were only for the “hard core” piercing enthusiast. Today, there is so much beautiful, delicate jewelry, the whole concept of a septum piercing has been transformed.

We love septum piercings!
