There were Beatniks in the 50's and 60's and Hippies in the 60's and 70's. A HipNik is a person who grew up influenced by those groups who is now middle aged and still lives their life by those influences. A very laid back person who embraces all the beliefs, spirituality and lifestyle habits of BOTH the Hippies and the Beatniks. HipNik can also be used to describe anyone of any age who lives the "Philosophy of the Beat Generation" and the "Hippie Culture of Diversity" even though they may not have been born in the 50's, 60's or 70's.
"I just met Oscar's mom the other day and she was really cool, she was like a blast from the past and really laid back about stuff...she is a free spirit with radical ideas... a real HipNik!"
