Erykah Badu recently shocked fans with a rather unique nose piercing.

The soulful songbird posted a photo to her Twitter timeline Tuesday (Dec. 10) of herself wearing a huge silver tusk-like piercing through her nose. Ouch! The painful apparatus also has an orange jewel on the end.

took a photo with the late
J Dilla’s mother, Maureen "Ma Dukes" Yancey, on Wednesday (Dec. 13) and the hook piercing is gone.

But if this photo is legit, then the singer must have been screaming in pain during the procedure. We also wonder how Badu is going to blow her nose through that thing. Or, what will happen if she sneezes really hard.
