We had to watch this short video through half-closed eyes, so be warned. If you’re the least bit squeamish, then please don’t watch Katy Perry getting her nose pierced.

This is how the pop star spent “Last Friday Night.” She’s obviously getting dolled up for her “Prismatic World Tour” show at the Sprint Center on Tuesday, right?

“Last time I did this I was on my own with a safety pin & cube of ice @ 13,” she wrote when she posted the video on Instagram.

“This time I thought it was best I left it to the pro's. Sorry mom (again).”

We were all good watching it through half-shut eyes until we heard Katie’s reaction to that javelin-like needle puncturing her sniffer.


Katy’s fans, however, are lovin’ it. The clip has been shared more than 9,000 times on her Facebook page, where it’s earned nearly 300,000 likes. On Instagram, where she’s followed by more than 6.7 million people, it’s scored more than 290,000 likes.

Please kids, like Katy said, don’t try this at home.
