I'm not sure if I have enough ink...

[You can click on any of the photos to enlarge for more detail]

Ana, the winner of my surprise box give away, asked me if I had ever posted photos of my ink collection. I have, after a fashion, but not every bottle, unboxed, on one surface.

So here are my inks. Oh, and this is AFTER the giveaway.









If you would like all the details, here is the complete list of the inks: Julie's inks

What a glorious sight! My ink collection is 4 bottles, but I look forward to the day when it'll look like yours.

Also loved seeing that Yama-Budo has been well loved in your colleciton ;)

I agree with Estivalia: Glorious! And yes, we can tell which ones are your favorites!

Not sure if you have enough ink either! But it looks like a start. :P

... but honestly. What a collection! Ink is awesome. Which reminds me I should get some Akkerman's.

My goodness, someone doesn't know the meaning of restraint, snicker, snort!

WOW! I think I have tamed my pen acquisition disorder but now ink variety is coming on strong. I have about 15 so I have along way to catch up. I struggle cataloging mine already just to keep from ordering the same exact hue or one that looks very similar. I'm learning two inks can look the same but behave differently even in the same pen.

Thanks for the enjoyable read

Wow, that's incredible. I just started collecting about six months ago and I have about 11 bottles and a bunch of samples and cartridges.
My favorite inks are the Iroshizuku's, particularly yama-budo, kon peki and fuyu-gaki and I'm trying to decide on my next bottle right now.
What's your favorite? I find making a choice very difficult, but with your extensive experience maybe you could help me narrow things down. Impressive and inspirational. Thanks for giving us a gander. (I've always wanted to use that word).

Hi Bodah

I would get shin-ryoku or syo-ro, both are great inks and a seller on Amazon has Iroshizuku for $21.99 per bottle with free shipping http://www.amazon.com/Iroshizuku-Fountain-Tsuki-Yo-Moonlight-69205/dp/B003MVIYZM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372444446&sr=8-1&keywords=iroshizuku+ink

Color me green… This is an impressive collection. I have about 12 bottles, now I want 40. :D I've enjoyed reading through your site. I would like to ask you, how did you get the lucky job of testing Journals for reviews?? That is my favorite thing to collect is Journals. I really enjoyed reading through that list. There are some on there I've actually never heard of. Thanks for the enjoyable read.
