In the update, Instagram notes that users aren’t allowed to post photos of “sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks.” It also says that female nipples aren’t typically allowed. However, there are exceptions for women breastfeeding and post-mastectomy scarring.
Instagram’s nudity rules also don’t completely ban nudity. If the nudity is part of a photo of a painting or sculpture, then it’s allowed on the service.
The updated nudity rules for Instagram also notes that the company may choose to remove photos of nude or partially-nude children that are posted by users. The rules state that these photos may be posted without any negative ideas, but that they could be misused.
