I would like to get my naval pierced, but I compete in rodeo and the jeans that I have to wear are very tight and high waisted. My rodeo circuit doesnt start for about 4 months. Would this be long enough for me to be able to wear the jeans??

Also, I have a very active lifestyle (rodeo, riding dirtbikes, wakeboarding, etc.). Should I be worried about the piercing getting ripped out??

I remember when I first started piercing, jeans that went over the navel were still common. Girls would leave the studio with there pants rolled down over there fresh piercing, but before you know it, they would have to put there jeans on regularly and the pressure proved detrimental to the healing of the piercing. Nowadays, girls jeans barely cover a hood piercing, so this problem is almost totally avoided.

Get the piercing ASAP, so it has time to heal up somewhat before starting the rodeo and other sports. Then during active sports use the eye patch trick, buy a hard plastic eye patch and tape it on over your piercing, which will provide a protective barrier for your piercing. This should greatly reduce trauma to your piercing and allow you to have a new piercing and still be able to participate in your hobbies.

  1. I’ve had my navel pierced for 10+ years. I work as an EMT for an ambulance company, and sometimes when I lift the gurneys they snag my barbell and it causes irritation. It doesn’t matter how healed they are, you’ve got to be careful.
