Hide the hashtag
If you don’t want to ruin the story aesthetics with hashtags, use emoji and GIFs to hide them. Also, you can blend it with the background by making it the same color as the background of the image.
However, if you truncate the hashtags, Instagram search engines may not recognize them.
