Hello,

I am new here. My name is Alison and I am from Scotland, UK.

I've recently become interested in New Zealand and Pounamu, but currently only have some natural pounamu drop pendants.

I'd love to have a small greenstone tiki but am having difficulty finding small carvings on ebay and such places, plus I am unsure as to how much one of these would be and whether it will fit in my budget. So I have come to Tiki Central to learn more about Tiki, the art of carving, and to keep an eye out for anyone who has carved a small Tiki.

Aloha from Sin City (aka Las Vegas), Nevada. After a couple of years monitoring the boards and immersing myself into tiki-dom, I finally decided to take the jump here! I'm pretty much a punk rocker, but my softer side enjoys surf guitar and exotica. I also love to paint and take pictures, so I'm hoping to find a way to combine my interests in punk rock with tiki/lounge/exotica within my art work. So here I am to fill my brain with mental, audio, and visual stimulus!

Hey everybody, been a lurker for a while but decided to start posting. Knew there was an introduction thread hidden here somewhere.

I'm a carver, woodworker, metalworker, and general connoisseur of art with a polynesian/hawaiian and african flair. Love masks, especially african masks, also love tiki, and "tropical" things.

Hope to put up some of my tiki stuff when I have a camera again, or they're anything more than raw materials, whichever comes first.

Welcome distantwonder, hawaiiansnowball and mcsommerreid! Don't be afraid to lurk, we all do it. However, this site is a lot more fun when everyone participates. If you have lurked for a while, you probably already know about the great search engine on TC. Look-up your topics/questions first because you may find a great thread that you may want to bump and contribute to. Have fun and have a mai tai.

Hi everyone. I'm new to TikiCentral so bear with my mistakes. This such a killer site I had to join in.

I'm from Birmingham, Alabama. I really like the whole tiki atmosphere. I draw some, but haven't gotten into sculpting yet. Maybe y'all will inspire me.

Aloha! I'm new to the posts, but come to tiki culture via more than 3 decades of infatuation with Les Baxter album covers, San Diego's Hanalei Hotel glimpsed from the 8 Freeway, dangerous safaris to find Bali Hai's Hidden Tiki, hearing the birds sing words and the flowers croon, shaking Leroy Schmaltz's sawdust-covered hand, and living within Martin-Denny-birdcall distance of the Bahooka restaurant. Great to be here!

Howzit from Harlem! I'm Doc. I've been an occasional lurker on TC, and I've decided to take the plunge at long last.

I'm a tiki and exotica enthusiast, dating back to when my mother went into labor dancing to "Hawaiian War Chant" on Sha Na Na. My mug collection officially reached "build new shelves" status last week. It's good to be here.

Hello All,

Just thought I would say "Hi!" I found this site while searching for all things Shag related.

I would not call myself a hipster, so much as an art collector and lover of Hawaiian items.

Greetings, fellow tikiphiles!
This is my first venture into TC, other than as a casual observer, but I had the chance to attend the Tonga Hut art show back in March and was blown away by how cool the whole Tiki Ohana is, so I thought "What the hey..." and here I am. By the way, the username refers to my personal appearance (think "Sufferin' Bastard" and you get the idea!), and not any grandiose claims about the few mugs I do have.
