Before getting your belly button pierced, you should make sure to chose a ring that is surgical stainless steel if it's your first piece of belly jewelry. Stainless steel is non-reactive to your skin and open wounds like a piercing, and will allow your new belly piercing to heal much faster.
You should also pick a ring that is easily cleaned for your first belly ring, so dangles and other large jewels are not recommended. Save the fancier styles for after your belly piercing has healed.
