The word tanghiste is the plural of tanghista, an adaptation from the Spanish tanguista, "tango dancer". Since Argentina and Uruguay (tango homeland) have a huge amount of from Italian descent and Italian speaker population, it is not strange at all that the word has appeared in Italian.
It is possible that someone is now using tanghista in relation with tanga (just as in Spanish tanguista), but the main meaning is related with the tango.
