Try an auto shop, somewhere that sells car accessories and stuff like that. Some service stations (gas stations) may also have it, as it's also important component of car batteries.

Good luck!

Here in Portugal i don't have that kind of problem, since barely all supermarkets sell that, but in your case, i would go with Chop's advice, try some auto shop, or something in that area, you will probably find there.

Why buy it? Just fill up your kettle and boil. Then when its cooled down its distilled, you could even bottle it if you want.

This is what you have todo for babys because they have to have distilled water.

Hope this helps

As far as i'm aware, that is just a mythe. Distilled water is actually the steam produced from the boiling water. I may be wrong, but that is what i remember from back in the school chemistry days. :icon_cool:

Claire is right, for the amount you will need in each tattoo you could hold a tilted glass over the kettle's out let and you will get distilled water, I know two tattoo artists who just use water from the tap, with no problems at all.

Correct Claire,just steam that has gone through a condensing process to cool down.
