1. Dr. Ph. Martin's Black Star HiCarb India Ink
2. Dr Martins Black Star India Ink Matte
3. Dr Martins Bombay Black India ink
The HiCarb version is the darkest and also dries matte (it's also available on amazon). The Bombay line also has a good assortment of other colors so you can do layered transparency washes with ease, but I like its black the least out of the three. I purchased a bottle of Black Star India Ink (matte) for $12 on amazon though you can find it for less -- for example, Art Supply Warehouse currently sells it for $6.65 per bottle, even cheaper in bulk. It's also available in bottles of 8 and 32 oz. It is a rarer ink, not one that many art or craft stores commonly carry.
For black and color, another good line of inks to consider is the Daler-Rowney FW acrylic artists paint. The colors are very vibrant and you can work with great subtlety, layering transparent non-water soluble layers for added depth.

These inks are great! They’re blacker than black a.k.a. awesome and are for really real waterproof as advertised! They also do well with markers! 10/10 recommend.
P.s. I use them with a Nikko G-nib. Haven’t tried them with any brushes yet.
