so, I made a potion that needs some of my blood, but then I realized that I can't do it! I need to use blood or else I know it won't work! So how can I find a way so there is no pain or something?-katzarecool
You know , I am always of the personal opinion that if a person needs to ask such a question like that , they are obviously inexperienced and not ready for such a working.
Blood in a working should never be taken lightly as it can be very powerful and is something highly personal and I am of the opinion that it should done only after great consideration.
Also , the pain in the drawing of blood can be considered symbolic and part of the sacrifice.
If your working is not absolutely neccassary , omit it or find a subsitute.
I am of the personal opinion that you should not even be using blood at all for this.
Anyway, now that the warning is given , here is how you should draw blood.
Take a Blade and place it near your thumb of your non-dominant hand. In fact , any finger pad would do but I would recommend the thumb as skin there is thicker and so reduces chances of scarring.
Lightly run your thumb over the blade , quickly but gently. Ensure that it is not too deep and make sure the cut is shallow. If done correctly , a few drops of blood can be squeezed out.
I suppose some may use a needle but I would prefer using a blade.
Once you are done with your working , clean the wound properly. Apply some antiseptic cream and bandage it. Your wound should be fully healed in a day or two.
