It’s time to dance around and make a wish before blowing out the candles, because you’re turning 22. You know it’s an iconic age when Ms. Taylor Swift wrote an entire song about how great it feels to be 22. In fact, you can use some of those song lyrics along with other 22nd birthday quotes and captions to capture this momentous time on Instagram or TikTok.

A few birthday selfies are a must, after all. You have to show off to your friends and followers just how you’re celebrating your big day and what you’re wearing. For a birthday OOTD selfie, you’ll need some iconic 22nd birthday quotes, and a few 22nd birthday Instagram captions are perfect for pairing with your party pic photo dump. You could also do a cute side-by-side photo of you as a baby with a recent snap to really show off your birthday glow up. Even foodies need some good birthday captions for pics of their cake and Boomerangs of them toasting with champagne.
