Several British tabloids are reporting that Ukrainian fitness model Elena Ivanickaya has officially gone too far in the name of Instagram likes.

Elena is alleged to have put her hairless cat under, so a tattoo artist could ink his chest with the winged Egyptian God, Anubis.

The fitness enthusiast apparently wanted her pet to be as "glamorous as her." We think this beautiful sphynx was plenty glam already.

Elena's followers are outraged and many are even calling for her to be banned from Instagram over the incident.

There's even a petition to have Instagram take action that you can sign here.


But she could face much worse than a blocked social media account — criminal charges could be in her future.

Police spokesman Natalia Chovpylo told the Daily Telegraph, "If we establish that the animal was tortured, we will open a criminal case."

It should go without saying, but if you want your pet to look extra extra on Instagram, take him to the groomer, not the tattoo parlor.
