How can I get my belly button piercing to close?

I had it pierced 4 years ago and only kept it in for 1 year. I've had it out now for about 3 years and the hole is still there. I can't put a piercing through the hole but it isn't closing any more. I am not looking to get surgery, I just want to know what I can do to make it less obvious. Thanks!

    It sort of depends on what the hole is like now, and whether or not it is sore, but if it hasn’t closed in all this time, it doesn’t seem likely that it will. If I were you, I would go back to the piercer if that is possible and ask about it. The piercer might be willing to look at the piercing and offer advice.
