That’s the reaction Katy Perry gave when getting her nose pierced a second time. The pop star shared a brief video of the painful piercing to her 6.7 million Instagram followers on Friday (Aug. 15).

“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 wrote on Instagram.

Perry is currently playing North American arenas on her Prismatic World Tour. The outing, which visits Australia beginning in November, is in support of her latest album, Prism, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last October.
