    Default Inverse navel rejection rate?

    Hello all, for a early Christmas present, my father is going to pay for my inverse navel piercing, my only problem ,is I'm hearing there is a higher rejection rate for an inverse navel rather than the standard one, if that's the case, I'd just settle for a standard one. Any input? I believe my belly button has enough skin to be suited for either piercings, though my piercer said he will check when I come in to see if there's enough skin. Thanks in advance!

    It really is down to anatomy, if you have a defined ridge to pierce through there's no reason for it to reject any more than a standard navel. However, most people don't really have that ridge and insist in getting it anyway, and a lot of piercers just don't really care if it rejects or not as they get paid either way so do them in spite of the poor anatomy. That's why there is an increased rejection rate for them, not because they are naturally prone to reject but just poor judgement.

    Get assessed by your piercer or throw a picture up on here and I will be able to give you a better answer as to whether you're suited.

    Here's a picture of my belly button, it's the best picture I could get, starting to wonder if I'm even suited for a standard navel with that line on my belly.

    Pretty sure you'd do fine with either, for a standard you'd need slightly shorter jewellery than the norm, probably around 10mm long instead of the usual 14 - 16mm. And for an inverse, well i'm about 90% sure you'd be ok, but obviously without seeing in person there could be some issue to it, but overall I think it'd work either way.

    As I'm not a piercer I can't access you, but I've had my standard navel piercing and inverse navel piercing for over fifteen years now with no migration or rejection.

    I did have two side navel piercings as well. One migrated up to a different position but never rejected out. I still have it with no problems during or after migration. I retired my other side navel piercing this year due to migration and rejection. No unhealed issues though as it didn't start moving for a good ten years, and it moved the same time as the other side navel piercing.

    Piercings and successful ones are really anatomy dependant, especially navel.

    I had my inverse navel pierced and it rejected within a few months, but I have no real ridge on the bottom so I'm getting dermals put in instead. Well just one dermal, actually. But you look like you have more of a ridge on the bottom than I do.

    I just got it done the other day. Here's a pic, my piercer said there's a good amount of skin there to keep it for a long time as long as I care for it good! I really hope it lasts more than a few years, I would really love to keep it, I love it so far.

    Looks good, keep an eye on the swelling in the next 24-48 hours as it seems to be a tight fit there.

    And really, if it lasts more than year then it'll most likely last for good!
