Hopefully, this small incident brought you over to this article, where you can learn exactly how you can appease your mildly annoyed friend.

Before you start
Make sure you have the latest version of Instagram installed. If not, you can easily update it from your app store. Once you do that, open up the app by tapping on its icon.
For the first step, simply tap on your profile icon at the bottom right of the screen. This will open up your home screen for Instagram. In most cases, it will show the photos that you have posted immediately. However, there is a chance that you may see some other post on your Instagram feed.
The next step is very simple. You need to select the picture that you want to tag your friend in. Simply, tap on the photo.
Once you have tapped on the photo, you need to open up its options menu. This is easy. Simply tap on the options icon on the right side of the photo. The icon has three small dots lined up vertically. This will open up the options menu.
Now select the “Edit” option.
Now select the “tag people” option on the screen.
For step 6, type in the name of the person/account that you want to tag. Once you have typed their name and selected their username for Instagram, you can congratulate yourself! You have successfully tagged the person in question.
Step 7 is simply checking whether you have successfully tagged the person or not. If you look at the bottom left of the photo, you will see that you have tagged the person(s) that you wanted to tag.

This is the best workaround for tagging on someone else’s photo.
Why can’t I tag someone on Instagram?
There can be multiple reasons as to why you cannot tag someone on Instagram. Perhaps the person who you want to tag has a private account. If that is so, you won’t be able to tag them until they make their account public. One other reason could be that they are not added to your friends list. You would need to follow them before you can tag them in your photo. Another reason could be that they have deactivated, or deleted their Instagram account.
In that case, you will be not be able to tag them indefinitely. You might want to reach out on any other platform. The third reason could be that your account has been restricted (blocked) by the person you want to tag. If someone has blocked your account, you can only interact with their account on a limited basis. Best idea would be to reach out to them on some other platform.
