A quick and easy way to change the look of your belly button piercing without removing it is to change the balls at the top and/or bottom of your barbell. These balls are usually sized to fit all standard (14 gauge) belly button barbells. You can purchase them separately or as a barbell set.
If belly rings appeal to you more than barbells, it's best to change those outright. Be careful to choose the same gauge belly ring as your original or your piercing will heal around the new gauge, making the old ring more difficult (or too easy!) to reinsert.
