Pirate Costumes

Pirate costumes in modern pop culture do not represent how pirates looked when they were hunting their prey on the seas of Atlantic, many centuries ago. Their often subdued and rugged clothes were more flamboyant than regular naval crews worn during that time but was nowhere near close to the fashion style that is today closely connected with pirate lifestyle.

Flogging

Flogging is method of punishment by beating the human body with particular implements such as lashes, whips, switches, rods, etc. Flogging was one of the most common punishments Navy sailors from many countries received during the Age of Sail. Since many of the pirates served in the Navy, they tended to avoid flogging as punishment during their pirate service.
