Trouble-free inks

Contrary to the name, Troublemaker Inks don't mean any for your pens. They are free-flowing and highly lubricated, ensuring a pleasant writing experience as well as maintaining your pen's inner mechanisms with every use.

Made with love

Troublemaker Inks is the passion project of two fountain pen enthusiasts who are artists by trade. Our inks are designed and handmade to perform beyond writing and into exciting creative applications.

Colors with stories

The colors from our Standard collection are inspired by the local peculiarities of our idyllic tropical hometown, Cebu.

Honestly-priced

Show your support for the little guys! We want to counter the upward trend of price/mL in contemporary fountain pen inks.
