Hydrolycus Pyrates

Published January 8th, 2012 by Bobby Henderson


I’m a tattoo artist in Minnesota and had a client come and wanted the skeleton fish with the eye patch logo.  I decided to draw him something similar but different and with my style, when he decided to go with the original image symbolizing the church I kept the new drawing for a future painting. 

This gentleman also turned me on the Pastafarian way and I received my credentials from the church.   Recently I had the time to finish up the painting and would not only like to share it with the church.

    i hate christians. fsm is only one true god. i reckon mary got laid with roman sodier and jesus is a effect of her unresponsiblity. Jesus i’m so glad you were crucified and i wish you gonna rot in hell raped by devils and your stupid mother

      This really looks like Brian of Nazareth, and I don’t hate this movie, I love it.

      So please, my Pastafarian friend, don’t do the error to hate Jesus ad their confused followers, this is not the way to help them to find our True Path.

      Actually when you watch tv programs (discovery channel type I mean) about the guy he seems pretty cool, it’s just that the church fucked up a large part of his message. Actually to me he seems like the original hippy (without the free sex though). Chill dude.

      Calm down brother! It’s talk like that which gives us FSM a bad name.
      There’s no reason to hate their views just because they differ from the true path, as I see it that is what the FSM stands against in the first place!

    Calm down now. The Church of the FSM is not about hate. It’s about love. And beer. And pirates and strippers.

      Yes, this is a must have purchase when you make it available. Both frame quality prints and shirts would be great.

      You have real artistic talent!
