This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
UPDATE: I've added another file so you can use the piercing on males. It's basically the same as the female, possibly a little larger. Recolour it to a light grey for best results but it will work with other colours.

This is my first belly button piercing. I made it in the sock slot because I figure it's the least used slot in the game and I didn't want to take up another jewellery slot.

The only drawback is that when you recolour the piercing it zooms in on the feet, so you will have to zoom out a bit to recolour then select the bikini to zoom back in and check it out.

I've included a cas thumbnail, which you can see below, along with some colour examples and screenies.
When you use the ring on large sims it stretches slightly.

Category - Accessory (takes up the socks slot)
Gender - Female
Ages - Teen through Elder.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is wicked, thanks! Could you possibly make a version that counts as earring or bracelet or something too?

This is really neat I was wondering how you made this, because there are almost no navel piercings for the sims 2 that don't come as an actual skin... If you have any ideas, how would I go about making a simple 2D navel piercing for TS2? and would I make it as a makeup/face paint item, an accessory, or would I just have to make it a skin? Sorry, I know it's a long shot type of question..
