I have finally decided to get a tiki tattoo. Though when I go to try and get some bases for my design, I find that there are like 2 tiki tattoos out on the web. I am trying to find resources online to get designs. I am looking for more modern tikis. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it. My e-mail is chugchug@bellsouth.net

Hey, BR, just use the "search" button on the top right side of this page and enter "tattoo" and watch the results fly.

I encourage you to bring a tiki that you love to the tattoo artist and have him sketch something from that. That's what I did - I brought a coco joe's lono tiki in and he sketched it out. It took 3 times but he eventually got enough detail that I'm happy with it. It's on my forearm.

Take the advice though and search for it on this board. I posted my picture there.

Tiki Kiliki you read my mind I was going to say the same thing. Not only that but as I was thinking about it I had an image of your Tat flash in my mind. I only saw it for a split second in the hotel lobby at Hukilua but it looked sweet!

Hows about you give us a peek and post it for BigRed and myself.

I was actually at a party once where two people had the same tattoo, its not like it's clothing that you can change. How bad does that suck?

Definitely make it a one of a kind!

Even worst than that is people who have tattoo's and have no idea what it means.
I recently met someone with an Om symbol on her shoulder and she thought it had something to do with kung-fu

I already have a Moai tattoo and I was looking to get Tiki'd on the other arm. I was given the tip of looking at some of the past Tiki News and Grog Log/Intoxica for some good drawings of various tiki. And there are plenty.

Re: not knowing what your tattoo means. I read in the news paper here that someone got a Chinese symbol tattoo on there arm thinking it meant wealth or something. When the guy went to a party and showed his new tattoo off a group of Chinese girls laughed at him. The tattoo artist who did the tatoo was fed up working in the studio and on his last day did this tattoo. It actually meant....UGLY KID

If you want, check out the "Concert Poster" design at
http://www.nicefishy.com . The Tiki Conga Drums would make and awesome tattoo. But what do I know, I got a mermaid on my leg.

Sorry, I haven't checked in for a couple of days. Here's a pic of my tatt. I am thinking of adding some flames around it, what do you think?

That's a cool piece Tiki K. Flames or no flames? That's a tough question. I prefer all black ink myself, but hot rod flames would be nice behind him.

I hate to say it, because I usually prefer black tats, but yours screams for some color. Keep it restrained of course, but some brown or yellow ochre hi-lights would make it pop.
