"Pigma Microns are always what I recommend to anyone wanting to dip their toes into inking. 
With a variety of line widths that deliver professional strokes at a cost extremely affordable to anyone, there has never been a time since the age of 15 that I haven't had a few of these pens in my tool kit.  In fact, Pigma Microns are my preferred inking tools of choice when I need to work while traveling, or simply when I'm away from my studio table."
