Question Belly Button Piercing

I want to get my belly button pierced, does anyone know any good sites that say how it is dangerous? I found one site that says that it is basically no different than ear piercing, safety wise, does anyone know if this is true?

Its not dangerous, other than the fact of sterilization. Make sure the peircer is certified, the place is clean, and they use a new needle. I have mine peirced, it its no big deal. It took a while to heal though, about four months...still got infected, and then I was on swim team, and the chlorine really helped it heal, but youre only supposed to swim after a few months. Good luck, oh and it doesnt really hurt!
