Katy Perry Pierces Nose, Posts Graphic Video on Instagram

That's gotta hurt! Katy Perry often seems fearless, but on Friday, Aug. 15, the pop star, 29, looked pretty uncomfortable lying on a table as she got her nose pierced. 

"Last time I did this I was on my own with a safety pin & cube of ice @ 13. This time I thought it was best I left it to the pro's. Sorry mom (again)," Perry captioned the Instagram video of the painful process.

In the brief clip, the "Teenage Dream" singer gets pierced by a long needle, simply exclaiming "Ow!" 

Perry is currently in the middle of her Prismatic World Tour, performing on Sunday, Aug. 17 in St. Louis before visiting more major cities in the mid-West.

"I love how diverse my audience is every night! 8 years old to 80 years old! #blessed #ThePrismaticWorldTour," she tweeted on Aug. 14.
