This episode of Currently Inked in sponsored by Vanness Pens at http://vanness1938.com. Vanness Pens is currently featuring the lovely Montegrappa Fortuna Mosaico at their store. This lovely writing instrument comes in vibrant colors (the Turquoise-colored Barcelona, the light blue Marrakesh, and the black and white Roma) in the distinctive Montegrappa Fortuna style.
