I got my belly button pierced about 10 years ago, and have gone from wearing a ring in it everyday to only wearing one for luck. I'd like to go back to wearing one everyday.
I really like my belly button ring, but hate the way it feels when it snags, which is something that's happened more and more since my piercing has "aged" -- the little skin between the two ends of the piercing has shrunk in size and it's no longer quite as taut feeling as it was when I first got it. I've been steadily losing weight since I got the piercing, which I think is why it's not as taut feeling. Anyways, at this point, I normally wear a ring in it (curved barbell) about once a month or so.
The BEST ring I've ever had "felt" short and thin, so I'd thought it was a eyebrow ring... so, when I decided I wanted to go back to wearing one consistently, I got a really cute
eyebrow ring, and the bar is actually so tiny, I'm worried about the piercing "shredding". I tried wearing it today and it felt a little stingy and painful, which is weird and worrisome for a healed piercing that's never given me any trouble. So, back to the drawing board.
Any advice for what I should look for in another ring?
Ideally, this ring would:
1. Be a little shorter than your typical navel ring
2. Be a curved barbell (or a small hoop)
3. Not be too little-kiddish/teenybopper (unless OWLS or PURPLE, lol, they're my thing)
4. Be hypoallergenic
