    I don't quite understand, maybe just a little young. I had a tatto about a year ago and it itched like a sandfly bite for days, does that mean my tattoist used glycerin in the ink ? O_o.......

    Ah yes, I wish I had some extra throw away for a few more tattoos. I need reminding on the whole healing process and there is just so much interesting body art out there...But I digress...Just don't ask for any nitric acid in the same sentence as Glycerine, if you get it from a chemist. You might find yourself in a blue light taxi, being taken to a nice comfortable room, to be shared with a big, burly bloke named Bubba.

    I got a 200ml bottle of Glycerine from a local Chemist
    It's the Glycerin BP makes a nice thick lather

    Also heard some home brewers use it to smooth out the taste
    May be worth checking if you have a local home brew shop

    In my part of New York State USA , it being kept behind the pharmacy counter. Believe that it may be used in the manufacture of 'illegal drugs' . Soon someone will realize that everything can be used to some evil end and it'll all be locked up....so it can triple in cost!
