Why is navel piercing bleeding
There are many reasons why a navel piercing can start to bleed. This can occur immediately after the piercing is done, and sometimes it can even happen years after the piercing. While the former is common to nearly all piercings and is nothing to be worried about unless the bleeding is profuse, the latter could be a symptom of a bigger problem.

All piercings bleed
Out skin covers flesh and cartilage, and veins that run under the skin carry blood from one part of the body to another. So whenever the surface of the skin is broken, some bleeding is bound to occur. However, this should stop as soon as the wound starts to heal, and the blood clots in place, effectively sealing the blood in where it belongs. Clotting should occur quite soon, usually within hours or days of the piercing. There is of course a foreign object now newly introduced into your body after the piercing, and when that rubs against the raw flesh, it acts as an impediment to the healing process and more bleeding happens. But as mentioned before, this should have stopped after a few days. If it does not happen, the likely causes could be:
•         Improper aftercare – you have not cleaned the piercing regularly, or done it improperly;
•         you or someone else has pulled or tugged at the barbell, re-opening the wound; or
•         itcould be the first signs of an infection.
Before we go into the details of why you are is bleeding, we need to dispel some commonly held myths about why this happens. The style or position of the piercing has nothing to do with it, unless the piercing itself was done improperly. This means that whether it was a horizontal navel piercing that you got done, or a double navel piercing, or reverse piercing, that has little to do with the bleeding, as long the procedure was performed by an experienced piercer with the right equipment.
Don’t do it yourself
Some young people, trying to keep their parents from finding out that they want to go in for a navel piercing (ear and nose piercings are all too evident) have taken to performing the piercings themselves, and one cannot stress enough that this is to be avoided at all costs. An inexpertly done piercing, without the safety and sterile equipment found at a professional facility, is the most common cause of piercings going wrong.
If however, you have done it, and the wound is bleeding, it is better to tell them now and get a tongue-lashing, rather than allow the bleeding to get worse and lead to further complications. After they’ve had their say (and grounded you for a few days!) they’ll probably take you to a doctor and make sure you are properly cared for.
But it’s never done that before!
Some people have their navel piercing give them no trouble at all for years, and suddenly start to bleed. This probably could be right after you had a different gauge of jewelry put in, or had treatment for an unrelated complaint, or it could even be that you or someone else accidently pulled on your navel jewelry a little too hard. Whatever it was, try applying some sterile solution or salt water to the area(just like you used to do when you first got the piercing) and if that does not stop the bleeding go and see a doctor or health practitioner immediately. While rejected navel piercing or migration is rare after the initial period has passed, it is not unheard of.
Infection is a possibility
While being alarmist is really not the point of this article, sometimes it is best to err on the side of caution and take the advice of qualified professionals at the first sign of trouble. Infection, whether it happens early or late after the navel piercing has been done, is always best treated as soon as possible.
