Can you start a pipeline by branch + tag?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configure bitbucket-pipelines.yml

We'd like to be able to start a pipeline by using a specific tag on a branch. Our setup has 6 environments, production, staging, int-a, dev-a, int-b and dev-b. We are using a custom git-flow workflow with master, develop, feature/*, defect/*, release/* and hotfix/* branches. We'd like to direct the same release/* branch to start two different pipelines, depending upon a git tag. By default, the release/* branch would trigger a build and deploy to int-a, but once we're happy with this at some point in the future, we could trigger a build and deploy for this release branch to int-b using the tag. So, always trigger the build and deploy to int-a, and only build and deploy to int-b when a specific tag or tag pattern is added to the branch.

I know we could just use two different branches, but extending for the tag would be grand.

If you have it, bonus, how do I do that then?
