Regardless of what you called it, the 'swelling' reminds me of the start of a middle aged man's paunch.
Hey, I resemble that remark!
Here is what I would consider a tulip shape, its a "customised Pelikan fountain pen is a unique pen made and used by Paul Rossi. The cap and barrel are in green and white marbled acrylic shaped to resemble the classic "turban' pen." Quote from Barrie Parker's sale of this pen last week, with his picture below. I didn't buy the pen from Barrie, but I looked at it for a while and it sure has an interesting shape.
I think if you are going to make a shaped pen then go all out, right past the "paunch" and into full "beer belly".
That part which laws or kings can cause or cure.
