I think and *hope* I have just saved myself from a nasty scar from my belly button piercing. I bought one of those maternity bars and pretty much forgot about my belly button piercing. Looking at it today, the skin between the holes on my belly has thinned out and gone red/scabby. I could see the bar part through the skin pretty much. My innie belly button is turning into an outie and this has pretty much happened overnight. Had I not noticed for a few more days i reckon the bar would have split through the skin!! Eeeeeeek Be careful with your belly buttons ladies!!!
