Can you imagine yourself wearing this piece of padlock in your nose? It's definitely a fashionable punishment for me! I think it's torture.
"In imitation of a former queen, women of the Djerma tribe of southern Nigeria, wear padlocks in their noses. Bothered by his wife's gossiping, a nineteenth century chief padlocked her nose, threatening to padlock her mouth unless she curbed her chatter. Mistaking the lock for an ornamental decoration, the women of the tribe adopted the lock as a piece of jewelry, wearing them instead their traditional nose rings."
