Navel Piercings

Okay, I've always wanted to get my navel pierced... Recently I've gathered enough courage and talked one of my friends into getting hers done too. I've read some websites to get some background information before someone starts poking a hole in my stomach. Most sites agree on the fact that it takes anywhere from 6 months to over a year to heal. However, none really stated how long I should avoid ocean/lake/pool water. Now, in about three months my friend and I are taking a trip to Hawaii. And I'm definatly going to be in ocean/pool water.

I'd really hate to get the piercing done and it turning uber-gross and getting infected...

Is three months enough healing time, or should I wait til after the trip? I'd really like to have it done before though, so I can show it off.

What do you think?
