    Default Migrated navel piercing

    Hi!
    My navel piercing seems to have migrated the last few years (the piercing is 16 years old), so it's more shallow now than when it was pierced.
    This makes the barbell move all over the place, since it now seems to long. Should I just get a shorter bar, or is there any point in getting it repierced deeper?
    Piercings:
    • Navel
    • 8mm lobes
    • 2nd & 3rd lobes 1.6 mm
    • Nipples
    • Left nostril



    Tattoos on left wrist, nape and upper back.

    Hi Litoja
    Sounds like it's on it's way out.
    I guess you could try a lightweight titanium, shorter bar if you're wanting to try and keep it but 16yrs is pretty good going. It might be best to retire it, leave it to close up for a couple months then have another beneath the remaining scar tissue. Have you discussed it with your piercer yet?
    Others may be able to give better advice. I don't envy you having to make a decision but keep us posted.
