Let’s have a civil conversation about retiring those trashy belly button rings (20 Photos)

I remember a time when belly button rings were trendy and sexy. Let's call that time Spring Break. But I know so many girls who just never stopped wearing them. And I think it's b/c nobody has stepped to the plate and told them it's time to unhook the (insert fake precious stone name) and toss it in the garbage.

Of course, I could be wrong which is why the following gallery has plenty of smoking hot girls wearing the goddam things. Any argument deserves to have both sides heard after all. So what say you, Chivers and Chivettes? Somehow theCHIVE has become a national stage for bizarre tastemaking. Let the debate begin.

    I'm incredibly fussy about tacky things on women. I'm not a big fan of piercings/jewellery in general. Ears are nice, eyebrow can be ok, nose/nipples/genitals/tongue I'm not a fan of. bottom lip suits some girls, but not many… There are undoubtedly very tacky belly button rings out there, but overall I -love- belly button piercings =]

    I find them to be as tasteful as an earring, but far more beautiful.

    #6 . So hot!

  • GrandSpear

    I think they friggen redonkulas. And they are not sexy.

    Rule 1: Said piercing must be shorter than 2.5 inches
    Rule 2: For the sake of my eyes, do NOT wear one if you have a muffin top
    Rule 3: Piercing may only be worn from the month of May (that's being generous) through the month of August

    Look at this the logical way. Yes, some piercings are more trendy or hip than others, but the truth is, if you think it's no longer trendy to have the belly button pierced, you might as well take out all your piercings. Except for #15, take that shit out you fat bitch.

    i got mine pierced about 5 years ago at the age of 21. my bitchy friend always told me it was trashy, bla bla bla (she was always just fat and jealous of me anyway) and at 26, i decided i was too old for that shit.

    They never looked good. They will never look good. Take them out. All of them. Does a hot chick look good with one, sure, but she's hot so she looks good in anything and better in nothing. Will it make an ugly chick hot, nope. Girls put the in to attract attention to themselves. There are much better ways to attract attention. Ditch 'em.

    #11 your argument is invalid.

  • daryl

    i hate them.

  • thetech2

    #6 that was 6 years ago saggy and number 11 can wear whatever the hell she wants anywhere she wants

  • Ken

    #11 = current AND future back pains.

  • alister

    i don't mind bellybutton rings. that one on the pregnant chick was pretty retarded though, wait till it tears out.

    but, as always, you need to find some of these girls. #11, #20, and ESPECIALLY #2

    I used to think the belly button was the only logical place for body piercings since it is a scar already… but then I saw what happens to that little hole after a girl gets pregnant. Basically creates a long ass vertical scar going up (or down) from the belly button. Sorry, chicas who have one, but you are going to regret it once you poop out a kid…

  • PittSig

    #5 OMG I just popped my collar; I'm gonna wear it like this til I'm 29.

  • Rusty

    #3 #7 #9 HOTT, I would like for each of them to have my undivided attention for one weekend each.

  • bittor

    Bellybutton ring alone = ok.
    bellybutton ring with dangling shit = fail.
    tanning designs = epic fail.

    I had one in college for about a month or so and after deciding that I officially looked like a tramp, I took it out. Not only do they look horrible under fitted shirts (it looks like you have a pretty gnarly 'outie') but they also get nasty from time-to-time.

    Some people seem to think that the scar left behind is gross, but mine is honestly the size of a ball point pen dot, if even that large. Some girls equate belly button rings to being sexy but there are many others ways to go about it without making the hole in your stomach sparkle!

    I'm sure it is time for #6 to remove hers, she is a great looking MILF but time to grow up. However,
    she should get points for the beer holder.

  • Seymour Butts

    #2 and #20 are exceptions. The rest of 'em need to lose it.

  • nojoke420

  • chris
