Smile Belly Piercing

I'm going to get my belly button pierced in about 45mins but I can't wear silver in my ears so would I be able to get a gold barbell when I first get it done? Also, I'm going to Florida May28th....would I be able to swim in the pool and get in a hot tub by then? One more thing....when I get it done will I be able to get a barbell instead of a hoop? I heard that hoops are kinda like more prone to infections.

1. Gold != Silver. IE, there is no way to tell. (!= means does-not-equal, for those who do not program.)

2. This is a question for your piercer.

3. Hoops are easier to clean and move around and keep the site constant. Barbells look pretty. Until your hole heals, you're taking a risk.
