Which tiki version? In 5, you might encounter problem
Read this http://doc.tiki.org/Understanding+Encoding
Check with tiki-install.php that your database is really utf8. (character set client, results, connection, database, server must be utf8) Try to check if you database data are utf8 or iso to know which of these parameters is not well set
Good luck
