Recently I’ve brought 2 bottles of ink on the plane, and both leaked in my check in baggage during the flight. My clothes were spared as the inks were in a Ziploc bag, which in turn was covered by another 2 plastic bags. There were no cracks on the bottles or caps, which are tight, and the ink did not seep out on vigorous shaking or inverting, both before and after the leakage incident. I think the leakage is probably due to air pressure changes forcing the ink out during the flight. Many have suggested not to even bring bottled inks on flight. The alternatives are to bring cartridges instead, or to use a travelling ink well (eg. Visconti or TWSBI). However, many a times, I want to bring bottled inks overseas, for example, if I use a non Visconti or TWSBI piston filler or vintage pens, or if I bought new inks from a foreign country (yes, new bottled inks have leaked before). I prefer to check in my inks because I don’t like to explain the strange fluids in my carry-on luggage, and if inks leak in check in luggage, they will also leak in carry-on luggage too. My questions are: 1. How to you prevent bottled inks from leaking on flight? 2. How to you prevent leaked inks from staining the rest of your belongings? In any case, I always assume inks will always leak on flight, and so far the Ziploc bag + 2 plastic bags have worked quite well to limit the damage.
