Can You Go Swimming after You Get Your Belly Button Pierced?

Answer

After you get your belly button pierced, you should wait at least a month before you try to go swimming in a pool, lake, or the ocean. Even after that amount of time, you should cover the belly button with a water-proof bandage. Belly button piercings can take up to one year to heal completely. Before there is complete healing, the site can get infected easily by bacteria. Unfortunately, bacteria infections often come from submersion in bodies of water.
