The blood of the earth, red ochre, is a good substitute for actual human or animal blood. Its use as a cosmetic is very ancient.

wait, so red ochre can be used as a tattoo ink that doesnt have the negative effects of the artificial modern inks? the newer inks are proven to clump up in the brain, causing cancer, and are often based on plastics

How often do you do castings? Do you use them more for divinations of the future or interpretations of current and past events?

regular personal forecasts are good practice and give you heads up on things in your daily life

"interpretations of current and past events" depend on what entity you're talking to, and time is not linear in runework. look into the ᛃ (time) rune for more info on the nature of time, harvests and cycles. sometimes it is the correct point in the cycle, sometimes not. the karma from your past is a record that will effect your future

Cool, thanks. Never done any form of divination, and I don't have anyone to ask irl, so I've just been going on books and articles.
