Of course we all love posing for Insta, but this is a whole new level.

19-year-old Katarina Zarutskie was on holidays in the Bahamas when she decided to pose with sharks for the gram!

Not surprisingly, as she lay floating right above the sharks, one decided to bite her, sinking its teeth into her arm and dragged her underwater.

Thankfully, Katarina was able to free herself from the shark but she was left with a giant dent and teeth marks on her arm, which she needed stitches and antibiotics for and no doubt her arm will be scarred for life. 

Appearing on ABC7, Katerina explained the ordeal.
