Katy Perry Gets Her Nose Pierced, And Yes, It Really Hurts! (Watch!)

Katy Perry takes one in the nose in the name of staying relevant. And, yes, it hurt.

Katy Perry takes one in the nose in the name of staying relevant. And, yes, it hurt.

Katy Perry proves once again that singers have way too much time on their hands while touring. Miley Cyrus may constantly get new tattoos, but Katy does one better.

She gets her nose pierced. Yes… Ouch!

The “Roar” singer has been on the road with her Prismatic World Tour.

She was in Cleveland last night (Aug. 14), one of 46 cities on the road trip to promote her latest album PRISM released in Oct. 2013.

Country artist Musgraves has been backing her for this part of the leg.

But Katy had a day off today (Aug 15) and she decided she needed some new body art. But she bypassed getting a tattoo and went with a nose piercing instead.

She documented the stabbing in a short video posted on Instagram for the world to see. It’s definitely up close and personal.

“Ow!” she growls once her nasal passage is pierced by some heavy-set dude wearing blue latex gloves.

“Last time I did this [got a piercing] I was on my own with a safety pin & cube of ice @ 13,” Perry wrote. “This time I thought it was best I left it to the pro’s. Sorry mom (again).”

Katy’s parents are crazy religious and believe in a strict interpretation of the Bible. And, it clearly says “Thy Shalt Not Pierce,” or something like that.

But Katy pretty much does what she wants these days, and staying relevant is something she really wants.

Nose piercings are actually pretty common among the hipster set… in fact, a little too common.
