I've heard some people say that you need the "right" belly in order to pull of a belly button ring properly. Is this true? Do you need like a model type belly in order for it to work properly? I'm looking into getting a belly button piercing, but I'm not sure it would look good on me.

You don't need to have a model type body to pull of a belly button piercing. .I am not skinny at all yet not fat, I have love handles and I am completely comfortable with it.. as a matter of a fact I don't like my belly without it anymore and somehow it shrinks my stomach... all you have to have is an innie button.
here are things you should do after you get it:
clean it with a cotton bud three times a day and twirl it up and down three times a day.
do not change the medical ring you re wearing for as long as it needs ( you need to ask the one who get it done for you) before wearing a regular flashy ring. otherwise it will get infected and no one wants an infected belly button ( believe me had to get it done three times to get it right because of the infection)
try to avoid salty water( beach) and baby oil for a while and keep it covered for at least a week.
some people say try to avoid eating dairy the first few weeks too for some reason.
