Standard Belly Piercing Sizes

The standard sizes for a belly button piercing are 10 mm in length and 1.6 mm in thickness. However, if you’re unsure what size you need, we recommend measuring the piercing you’re currently wearing.

There are also other options for the thickness or length of a belly button piercing. You can find more information about the alternative sizes below.

Alternative Belly Piercing Sizes

Although the default thickness is 1.6 mm, some people may need a 1.2 mm thickness for their belly button piercing.

The most common alternative lengths are 8 mm or 12 mm, but we also have some belly button piercings in lengths of 6 mm and 11 mm.

There are also many belly button piercings with an interchangeable bar. If you’d like to change these bars to a different length, or upgrade it to a nickel-free titanium bar, you can find loose bars in the accessories section.

Fragile Belly Piercings

There are so many different designs available there is definitely something for everyone. Please note that some types of belly button piercings can be quite fragile.

When wearing a belly bar, you don't want to think about your jewelry catching onto a piece of clothing and causing severe harm. Many belly piercings are specifically designed to break when too much pressure is applied to avoid accidents. Although a piece of mind, this also may result in unwanted broken belly piercings.

The dangling belly button piercing is very popular. The more crystals, figurines or dangling parts there are, the more vulnerable the piercing. Wear oversized dangling belly button piercings only for short periods of time.

The classic design with a simple ball is great for everyday wear and can be more durable than the dangling designs. Please note that figurines and crystals are often glued to the bar, so they can be a bit more fragile.
