Pirate Decor & Pirate Signs At Tikimaster.com

Well, we all know that Hawaii is known for its Tikis and Polynesian carvings...California is as well known for its surf culture.
We found that Florida is actually known for its pirate decor! Interestingly enough, Tikis are tied to them indirectly. You could very well have your Tiki bar as the center piece and use a Tiki carving with either some surf accessories such as hand carved surf signed or some pirate signs or vintage pirate framed paintings.

Did you know this amount pirate history: The history of piracy dates back more than 3000 years, but its true word depends on the actual meaning of the word ‘pirate’. In English, the word piracy has many different meanings and its usage is still pretty new. Today, some uses of the word have no particular meaning at all.

A meaning was first ascribed to the word piracy sometime before the XVII century. It seems the word pirate (peirato) was first used in about 140 BC by the Roman historian Polybius. The Greek historian Plutarch, writing in about 100 A.D., gave the oldest clear definition of piracy. He described pirates as those who attack without legal authority not only ships, but also maritime cities. Piracy was described for the first time, among others, in Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey.
