How to change the Location Tag color again AFTER you’ve already set a custom color?

You can only change the color again IF you have added text on top of the Location Sticker. Otherwise, you’ll have to delete the tag and start again.

My tip is to always add random text on top of your tag. If there is text, you can change the color of the Location Sticker. Delete the text before you post, so you only show the Location Tag.

If you don’t put text, you have to delete your Location Sticker and add it again with the right color you want.
