Katarina Zarutskie, 19, was vacationing in the Bahamas with her boyfriend and his family, when she made a decision to take advantage of getting an epic Instagram pic.

Katarina Zarutskie, a nursing student in Miami with almost 28,000 Instagram followers and her own blog, was enjoying a trip to the Bahamas last month when she made a decision to swim with a group of nurse sharks.

The BBC reports she'd finished lunch one day on Staniel Cay with her boyfriend and his family when they came upon people snorkeling with nurse sharks. Apparently not intent on posing for the photo, one of the sharks made a decision to have a go at her arm. Zarutskie then swam to shore as her arm bled.

Katarina Zarutskie was bitten by a nurse shark.

Despite a scar that could get in the way of her modeling, the nursing student said she feels lucky.

Zarutskie has almost doubled her following on Instagram since her story came out; however, she has since made her account private, partly because she has "received a lot of rude and hateful comments from people that were saying ridiculous things", she told BBC. But, she added, "I am so fortunate that I still have my arm and my life".

The English bulldog was reportedly named after Hungarian-American actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. Zsa Zsa's body was returned home and the family held a special farewell ceremony.

One user wrote: "I think you handled the situation like a boss!"

"[The doctors] now believe that I still have pieces of the shark teeth in my arm and I will forever have a scar", said Zarutskie, who noted she was anxious about the injury affecting her burgeoning modeling career.

"A lot of locals that were just excited, and encouraging me to swim with them", Zarutskie, 19, said in an interview that aired Wednesday on "Good Morning America". She's been accused of being a dumb blonde who is obsessed with social media.

Alongside photos from the misguided shoot, she wrote: "PSA: Sharks are cute and can nibble at times if not careful".

"I'm not afraid of the ocean and if anything I respect and love it more", she says.

This might just be me, but having your photo taken fuckin' sucks.
