If you're looking to get a different type of belly button piercing, ask your piercer. You might be able to get a lower belly button ring (which is where the bottom area of the navel is pierced) or a horizontal belly button piercing (instead of a barbell inserted above the navel, a ring is pierced horizontally above the navel).
These belly button ring styles are not as common as the typical belly button piercing, but can give you a different look. Just make sure to go to a reputable piercing shop and ask if the piercer has experience with different types of belly button piercings. Both you and the piercer should feel comfortable with any piercing that is done.
