SHARE Katy Perry’s nose-piercing likely to inspire others to do same

While piercings of all kinds are nothing new — and like tattoos are more and more common — a number of entertainment world types think Katy Perry’s nose-piercing will inspire many in her legion of devoted fans to do the same.

The singer’s posting of a video on Instagram ensured millions of people — around the globe — would see the procedure. “I’m sure there will be a lot of nose-piercings happening in the next week — even far more than usual — thanks to Katy Perry,” said a major music industry honcho, who requested to remain anonymous, for fear of “pissing Katy off.”

“In today’s world, stars’ brand power is infinite,” added the source. Their fans are often fanatical — especially music fans. … The owners of the world’s piercing and tattoo parlors should all be singing Katy Perry’s praises today!”

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

Perry, of course, was just in Chicago performing at two sold-out concerts last week.
