Beauty is pain. Cardi B knows this firsthand.

1 Down

In the first video, she gripped her husband Offset’s hand while screaming in pain. “1 down,” her caption said.

The next two videos are similar — Cardi B tried to relax, then shouted and squirmed around.

“Why am I even agreeing to this?” she said in the second video.

“I forgot how it felt,” she captioned the third.

In her final post, Cardi B shared the “final result” — three piercings on her chest and another on her lip.

The finale 💎💰

Her followers were thoroughly entertained.

“Be careful babe. Stay away from Kulture for a lil lol,” one user wrote.

“Offset ready for bed,” another wrote.

Others weren’t so impressed.

“You really don’t need all this,” one person said.

“Cardi what are you doing to your body you don’t have to do all that,” another wrote.

We think she looks great, but after watching those videos, we won’t be attempting that look ourselves any time soon.
