Belly rings have been a trend in the fashion industry since the early 1990’s. Crop tops and low rise jeans allowed the midriff area to be exposed and as a result very appealing. Most of the time you will only find belly rings on females but a few males have been know to sport them. It is very important that you get the piercing done by a professional to avoid an infection.
Many people love the fact that belly button rings are very inexpensive. There is also a good variety of them to choose from.
