Yikes! Katy Perry gets her nose pierced on camera!

WARNING: This is not for the faint of heart.

Katy Perry decided to get her nose pierced and, being Katy Perry, decided to share the video on Instagram for our viewing, er… pleasure?

This apparently isn't Katy's first taste of the needle, as in the video's caption she recounts that the first time her nose was pierced, she did it herself, age 13, with a safety pin.

"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)"

We feel a bit sick now.
