    Can I get my belly button pierced with a bioflex ring?

    I want to get my belly button ring pierced BADLY, but i'm allergic to metal. Bioflex is a belly ring made out of some material that prevnts stretching to the hole. If I pierce it I need to use this kind of ring. I don't know if they can pierce it with it or immediately replace it after making the hole?

    Plastic sticks to healing tissue, which is why it's only worn once the piercing is fully healed.

    I believe you're talking about PTFE bioplast. And no. It will greatly increase your risk for infection and your skin can actually grow into the barbell. If you have any kind of skin allergies then go for titanium. They are more expensive, but most piercers do offer it and if not you can order it and bring it with you and you will most likely get a discount since body jewelry is part of the high price of piercing.
    Hope this helped!
