Who wants to do some navel-gazing? A belly button piercing is such a cute and sexy piercing that so many people are attracted to and want for themselves. In general, there are only a few different placements for belly button rings. You can choose the upper navel or upper rim, the lower navel or lower rim, and the sides. Most belly button piercings are on the upper rim or navel and we will be sure to share with you plenty of images of such so that you have the best idea of what to expect if you decide to go that route.
We wanted to discover the trends and possibilities with belly button piercings so we turned to social media to get the latest and greatest in all things buttons. We were pleasantly surprised to see a number of different types along with some truly stunning jewelry that makes for real body candy. If you are curious about belly button piercings or are thinking about adding to your button’s collection, please take a look below for all of the best ways to style your cute little button!
Take a Walk on the Wild Side with These Belly Button Piercings!
As promised, here’s an image showing an upper belly button piercing or upper rim piercing. This type is the most popular in the area. How about these precious, pink stones!?
Here’s a very cool piece of jewelry that really shows off the area. It’s a curved cluster of gems that fits beautifully inside this person’s navel.
Here’s a look at the other direction you can take this. The lower rim or lower navel piercing is not nearly as popular as its upper sister but it does have its merits.
Here’s another example of a lower navel piercing. We think these look best on people with shorter torsos where the belly button appears higher. But, it’s totally up to you!
Put a Ring On It
Most piercers aren’t using full belly button rings like they used to. They’ve pretty much fallen out of fashion but we think a ring is a cute look. This is an upper navel piercing with a ring going right through it.
Here’s a double belly button piercing with both an upper and lower piercing. It looks fantastic if you can stand the discomfort of being pierced not once, but twice.
Another way to make your belly button piercings really stand out is with one-of-a-kind jewelry. We find a cute little figurine that looks like it’s sprouting from this piercing. How fun!
Here’s a standard belly button piercing flanked by two subdermal piercings which are anchored to the skin by a small implant that holds the jewelry in place.
Another Way to Trio
Another way to get a cute triangular look with your belly button piercings is to have a horizontal industrial piercing. It’s simply a bar that goes in and out of the skin with two balls on the ends to keep it in place.
A Rare Sight
Most people choose vertical belly button piercings but that’s not all that’s out there. This person has two horizontal navel piercings that go through the rims of the sides rather than the top or bottom.
Here we find two belly button piercings stacked in an upper and lower formation. Below, you will find two small dermal piercings that give this look a total of six studs.
Outie? No Doubtie!
Some people think that just because they have an outie belly button that they can’t get a piercing. Nothing could be further from the case. You can still get yourself a belly button piercing.
See? No Problemo!
Here’s another example of an upper rim piercing done to an outie belly button. It looks fantastic, right?
Piercings for All!
Here’s another example of a unique belly button piercing that takes advantage of this person’s uniquely shaped button. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, folks.
Make It Pop
Go ahead and make that belly button piercing pop with some dermal piercings to the sides. If you can’t get enough dazzle down there, add more with these implants.
Let It Dangle
Here, we find a double piercing with some dangling jewelry on the bottom to make it look even longer than the piercing scheme already is. If you’d like to accentuate the length of your torse, feel free with belly button piercings like these paired with some fantastic jewelry.
If you want to take your belly button piercing to a whole new level, consider a tattoo around the area once it’s healed. Don’t these fine lines look fantastic around the button?
Chain It Up
Belly necklaces are like the most dazzling little belts in the world! We find one here paired with a belly button piercing to give the whole look something to be anchored to
Create a Constellation
You’ve likely heard of constellation piercings for your ears but have you thought to try the look on your belly? This person has a lower belly button piercing and two surface piercings to create an interesting shape.
Top It with a Bow!
If the idea of surface piercings doesn’t freak you out, you can consider creating rows of them to lace up. Let your belly button piercing be the top point to tie the bow to.
Unlike some of the other trios of belly button piercings, this example consists of three true navel piercings. We find an upper rim piercing and two semi-horizontal ones that you’ll find gold rings inside.
Here’s another triple piercing but it forms more of a cross shape as opposed to an arrow one. We love all the glittery blue in this button!
It’s Pronounced with This One
This person does not have a “conventional” belly button and thus, they’ve managed to turn some lemons into lemonade with their belly button piercings. There are three total, all very much pronounced thanks to the unique shape of this button!
Apologies for the extreme close-up of these belly button piercings, but we find an interesting scheme in this image. Three upper rim piercings are stacked right on top of one another with a lower ring dangling below. Let’s hope they did not get all four in a single sitting!

We find a double belly button piercing here with both being perforated by a single, universal piercing. If you want an upper and a lower, you can make the most of both with a custom piece of jewelry like this!
There you go! These belly button piercings weren’t so bad, were they? We hope you enjoyed this exercise in navel-gazing and feel inspired to get your very own belly button ring however it suits you! These piercings are a blast, just make sure you properly clean and care for it as it can become infected without proper attention!
