Instagram's Community Guidelines clearly state that you shouldn’t repost any content without permission from the content owner.
Ways to ask for permission:
- Comment on the photo you want to use. @mention the user so they’ll get a notification.
- Send a direct message (DM) in Instagram. Users who receive a lot of comments on photos will be more likely to see your DM.
- Send an email if the user has an email address in their bio. An email looks more professional and won't get lost in Instagram’s notifications.
