Can you have your belly button repierced after you had a baby?

I had mine done before my son was born but I took it out when I got pregnant. Can I get it done again? What about scar tissue?

  • Yep. It's not usually an issue. They can redo the same hole or do a new one.

  • I had my belly button pierced before I got pregnant w/ my second & yes I re-pierced it after my son was born. It looked just as it did before. I'm now pregnant with baby # 3 and had to take it out again... If I need to I will re-pierce it!

  • You can, but it's really gonna hurt because of the scar tissue.
    I had mine done and then like 3 weeks later, I got taken in for traffic ticket warrants
    and they made me take it out. After 3 days in there, needless to say, it closed up.
    Well I waited a few months and then decided that I wanted it done again, and
    DAMN! DAMN! DAMN! Did it ever HURT! The first time wasn't really bad.
    But the second time, DAMN! Because the needle kinda got hung up on the
    way through and she really had to shove that sucker to get it to go all the way through.

  • Yes you can get it re pierced. I did after my son was born. As for the scar tissue; they usually try to work around it.

  • You should have it pierced behind the scar tissue to anchor it in.
