Q&A: Does weight loss affect a belly button piercing?

Question by sea foam green girl: Does weight loss affect a belly button piercing?
I plan on getting my belly button pierced soon. And I also plan on losing 15-30 pounds over the summer(after I get it pierced) and I was just wondering if this weight loss will affect the Way the piercing looks or where it’s placed. Please provide me with the most accurate answers you can provide. 🙂

It might cause it to migrate out. Basically your body rejects it and pushes it out over a period of time.
Since it is almost Summer please remember that you shouldnt submerge it in any type water for long periods of time due to the possibility of infection. (i.e. swimming, wading,ect) The recommended period of time before swimmig varies according to the piercer. i think 6-8 weeks minimum, but some advise more time than than that. Up to 6 months.

Q&A: Will the tattoo stretch with weight loss?

Question by Brittany O: Will the tattoo stretch with weight loss?
I want to get a tattoo behind my ear that goes from there to my shoulder. I’m in the process of losing a lot of weight, and was thinking that there’s a possibility the weight loss could cause it to stretch oddly. I don’t have a fat neck, but I’m just paranoid.

Do you think it will?

Thanks for answering. If you don’t like tattoos or where I’m getting the tattoo, please don’t answer. I really don’t care about your opinion.

If you get the tattoo before you are done losing weight, your tattoo probably won’t stretch, per say. What will probably happen (you might not wanna hear this) to the tat (if u get it before you loose all the weight), is some of the fat underneath the skin where your tattoo is will be lost and therefore your skin will be somewhat loose or baggy/wrinkled.
