Iroshizuku Tsutsuji vs Diamine Flamingo Pink

After winning Iroshizuku Tsutsuji recently in a giveaway put on by the amazing Goulet Pens, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to compare my two current favorite pink inks with gold sheen: the newly received Iroshizuku Tsutsuji vs Diamine Flamingo Pink.


Tsutsuji is a gorgeous bright fuschia pink with a killer gold sheen.



Flamingo Pink has a gold sheen too, but it’s much more subtle and less in-your-face than Tsutsuji. It can be hard to decide whether this color is more orangey coral, or more pink, and it depends a lot on the paper and lighting you are working with. But its a GORGEOUS color regardless, and has just the right amount of gold sheen.

    I love pink fountain pen ink! Flamingo Pink is one of the best, but though I thought Tsutsuji was a little *too* fuchsia at first, I am definitely warming to it.
