How to ink comics with pen and ink

Once completed our draw we are ready to ink it. You can use different tools to do that. This depends on witch tool you are confident with. You can use traditional tools like pen like Pigma micron clam ink pen set, witch is perfect for beginners or the old stile and charming ink pen with hunt pen. This is actually more difficult to use but could it get you great satisfactions:) I use both, it depends on what I'm inking on.
