Creative New Belly Button Rings!

June 2nd, 2010

Not only are belly button rings becoming more popular, but they’re becoming more creative as well. Gone are the days where all you could find was the standard, traditional non-dangling banana barbell with two acrylic balls. No more!

You can find navel rings with a wide selection of barbell styles and decorative accents.  The most common, and least expensive, are still the non-dangling, but that doesn’t mean they’re boring. You can purchase a navel ring with a variety of gems and jewels, colors and shapes, and even licensed logos and brands like professional sports teams and Playboy.

The dangling belly buttons are becoming more creative, too.  They’re no longer always a plain jewel hanging from a plain linked barbell. You can get dangling chains, gems, jewels, metal shapes and more.  If you’re interested, there are also belly button rings attached to chains and ropes which can wrap around the waist or link on to other body piercings.  The dangling portion can be less than ¼ of an inch long all the way up to 1 ½ inches long or more.

There are even newer and unseen styles available today. In the past few years, the “reverse navel ring” has skyrocketed in popularity. This style of navel ring enters the belly button in the same way, but instead of a decorative piece hanging down from the bottom part of the barbell, it extends from the top. It will typically be stationary, rather than free-moving, but this is a creative way to expand your navel ring style.

You could also look for a “spiral navel ring” if you want something a little more daring. They don’t dangle but they are a curved barbell either.  They spiral and twist, just like the name says. The design features a 14 GA or 16 GA barbell that spirals, rather than curves. It appears to be like a section of a spring, but it doesn’t expand and contract. They usually have two balls on the end in decorative colors and sometimes the entire ring is made from titanium, which comes in a variety of colors.

Never again should you feel like you can only choose from two styles of navel rings.  No matter what your style and taste dictates, you can easily find a belly button rings that’s right for you.
