125 Hashtags for Artists on Instagram



Hashtags are the way your pictures get found and reach those with similar interests as you. When I started my art journey on Instagram I had to do research about hashtags and I was clueless about what was out there and what would apply to my art. I decided to make this list to make research easier for you and to provide you with plenty of hashtags to your in your posts.


Before starting the list, I think it is important that you are aware of the 30 hashtags limit per post on Instagram. I would also love to make the request to only use hashtags that apply to your work in order for people to find what they are looking for.


I tried my best to organize my list alphabetically in order to not repeat the hashtag.


Anyways, here we go:

I had fun researching these hashtags for you, and I hope you find the perfect fit for your art in this list. Dare to play around and create your own hashtags–start a trend!

During your process, take a look at the art featured on each of the hashtags and share some love, connect with people, and start a conversation.

Remember that changing hashtags every once in a while helps with your reach and this list should help you also explore new ideas for your posts.


I also need to note that I mostly featured general hashtags and a few specific hashtags for my most used medium, oil paint, but you can easily substitute "oil paint" with your medium of choice (e.g. watercolor, acrylic, alcohol inks, gouache, etc.).


Comment the hashtags you use the most, and the ones you think I missed and should explore.


Every couple of weeks I will feature my favorite posts or artists I find while exploring an individual hashtag of my choice or medium/technique.


Please subscribe if you wish to follow my journey with art and share this post with other artist looking for hashtags for their posts.


Stay creative.


Love, Lourdes
