what does it mean when your belly button piercing bleeds a lot?

Bleedin body piercin: It means that you should have been smart enough not to have gotten the piercing originally. Sometimes when the piercing is done, a small blood vessel can be nicked which does not easily close. You must remove whatever ornament you have hung on yourself and let it heal, and see a dermatologist.
