Piratecore TikTok is here—and it’s delightful


Piratecore TikTok is here—and it’s delightful

You’ve heard the sea shanties, and you’ve seen the cottagecore aesthetic take over TikTok. Well now get ready for piratecore, the charmingly queer TikTok subculture where everyone has a piratesona and is 100% ready to fight, but only if you’ve got a sword.

So far, it’s being lead by the bisexuals, or rather, the #birates (we are a people known for our love of puns, and actually, pirates, after all). Check out a few of the examples below, where TikTokers transform into pirate characters.

There are some fierce lesbian and other LGTBQ+ crews out participating in piratecore as well.

Some are busy setting up entire role-play communities.

While others are playing a character largely by themselves, with the occasional duet or two.

There’s also a surprising, or perhaps unsurprising, intersection with vampires and vampire TikTok. Pirates and vampires do tick off a lot of the same aesthetic notes, after all.

There’s also crossovers with some other regions of TikTok too, including Viking TikTok. Who knew that pirates would make such a comeback in 2021?
