Runes are letters found on stones, bones, pieces of wood, parchments, and metal plates used for writing in regions inhabited by Germanic peoples from the 2nd to the 11th century.

According to Viking mythology, the God Odin discovered the runes in a place located at the top of Yggdrasil, a tree that holds the nine worlds. From then on, the pieces began to represent the mysteries of wisdom.

The art of divination, considered pagan by Christianity, which is called Runemal, is one of the oldest methods used as an oracle to get answers. Each symbol influences people's lives in a different way, each one being a powerful force of the cosmos.

Currently, runes are most commonly used by gypsies and astrologers. They are divided into 24 pieces and form three groups: Physical Realizations, Emotional Realizations, and Spiritual Realizations. Each piece has a positive and a negative meaning, or inverse. In this sense, each tattoo can have one or more meanings.
