How To: Harvest your own squid ink


I really, really love the fact that this Instructable starts off with "Step 1: Obtain squid."

It's also incredibly cool that these instructions aren't just about collecting the squid ink. Instead, you're being taught how to save the ink from a squid that you're planning on cooking. It's two lessons in whole squid dissection for the price of one! Plus there's a video.

I'm really curious to know how different squid ink would look from other inks if you used it for printmaking or writing. Does it look different at all? Have any of you tried it?
