I followed the flicker of the tiki torches and ended up here. I'm Mai Kai 'na Girl and I've been browsing T.C. on & off for a year now and just recently felt the urge to speak.

I was introduced to the beauty of tiki as a child growing up in Fort Lauderdale within view of the Mai Kai's splendid architecture and fantastic tiki. These primitive figures stirred one wild child's imagination and no doubt contributed to a passion for nostalgia that has long been an undercurrent in my life.

in other words -

I like old stuff & stiff drinks. Any questions, boys?

ummm...ALOHA!? I just found this board while looking through some other tiki related sites. I figured I had better post an intro, so here it is. I've been drawn towards tikis and tiki related things for about 6 years now...I'm not sure what the fixation is...just know that I dig them. I have a couple tiki tattoos that some really talented friends put on my legs. I'm a sign painter/pinstriper/blue collar artist...in that order. I dig traditional hot rods and customs and American roots-type tunes. I'm really amazed at the artistic talent here!! Definitely gonna be a great place to soak up some inspiration! Hope this wasn't too long winded...

Hey tiki-cats! I'm also a sign painter / pinstriper / artist. I'm kind of new here as well. It's nice to meet a fellow pinstriper (Barnett). I posted some a while back, but plan on spending more time here at TC on a regular basis. It's a very interesting place with lots of great people. My site address is:

Well at least I'm not the only sign artist (though i work with vinyl) around here. Lets see there are now offically two guys from Texas who know about kick ass hot rods, good music and tikis. And sign artists to boot.
But only one is in Outhouse Moan.

Hey how did that plug get there!?

Thanks for the welcome. Good to see some fellow Texans AND other sign artists, too! I'll get my wife to take a pic of the tattoos and then I'll see if I can figure out the posting procedure here...I'm pretty computer stupid. To add to my computer stupidity, I have one of those iMacs and the mouse doesn't have right and left click...so I'll have to find out what keys are gonna do the job. Sad, huh? Too much time painting, not enough time catching up with technology.

Barnett, to "right click" on a Mac, hold down the control key while clicking. I'm on a G4. Once you go Mac, you don't go back I always say!

They say the first step is admitting you have a problem ... but it isn't my problem - the tiki made me do it!

Hello all - I'm not really "new" in that I've been lurking for awhile, and enjoying many of the threads here on tiki central. I'm a tiki-phile living down here in S. Florida (Fort Lauderdale more or less) about 15 minutes from the Mai-Kai. I'm converting my yard into tiki gardens little by little, and my back room into a very large tiki bar. Should be fun. Should annoy my cowboy wannabe neighbors no end - I don't think they like Martin Denny. I also have a website that is dedicated to tiki, and where I'll be putting up electronic copies of some of the great (historical) Hawaiian Holiday Scrapbooks that I've managed to collect. Don't know if anyone is interested, but I recently started a tikiblog in my ongoing quest for tiki consciousness. Anyway, that's about it, just doesn't get any better than tiki!
