Close your eyes if you're squeamish.
Lady Gaga, no stranger to the cutting-edge alternative lifestyle, had her septum pierced at on the North Side of Chicago Tuesday. If you're not familiar, that would be the tissue separating the two sides of her nostrils.
According to one of the shop's tattoo artists, Joshua Clay, Gaga was "cool as hell, made a point to hang out and meet all of us, so cool."
Gaga was spotted at the Pitchfork Music Festival over the weekend and her actor beau, Taylor Kinney, started shooting new episodes of "Chicago Fire" this week, which would explain why she's in Chicago.
Why she needed her septum pierced? Someone else will need to explain that one.
